Well, they are adjusting my BP medicine again. I appreciate the fact they want to minimize how many I take, but it is a little irritating to have a normal BP (130/80 is normal), and now I have BP readings that are all over the board. In the morning it is normal, and then it ranges from normal, to really high (165/105) at night. I have another appointment on Friday to follow up with the Dr. to try to give me a more normal BP. For the time, I am only on 20 mg of Lisinopril. I used to be on 20 mg of Lisinopril and 5 mg of Amlodipine. Since they took away the Amlodipine, my BP has been crazy. I don't know if the BP is normal while I adjust to the medications, or if I need to be on Amlodipine. The problem is that I want to self-medicate and just take the Amlodipine. The problem is that it may not be the best for me. I guess that I will have to wait until Friday to find out what I will be taking. I know, patience, patience, patience!
