I think there were a few others with high bp. How is yours doing?

I'm not feeling well at all these days. Last night my bp was 152/92. I thought it was high because I ran out after my initial dose Monday, but I am currently carpooling until Friday so I wasn't able to get my meds until yesterday evening. Besides missing my night dose Monday and my morning dose yesterday I take my bp medicine like clockwork. I called my dr office to ask how long it would take to kick back in, but the nurse said it wouldn't be out of my system in a day and is going to call back. Honestly I just want to go home and lay down, but I've been carpooling with my Dad this week and he doesn't get off until 5.

Feel better and get that BP down. My Dr. wants me to keep an eye on mine and let him know if it ever gets up over 130 or 90. Are you on Labetalol? I've missed some evening doses in the past but try to take it as soon as I remember. When is your next apt?

I take 200mg of labetalol tice a day. I have an alarm on my cell and keep the pills in my purse so I don't ever miss a dose. My next appt isn't until mid Sept, but I am thinking about possibly switching dr's and may get in with one sooner b/c of that.

I closed my door and put my head down on the desk. Thankfully I'm feeling much better today.

I hope it gets back to a manageable level. I was prescribed labetalol around 8-10 weeks and refused because last pregnancy it made me feel so run down and horrible. I have been following the DASH diet very closely to keep mine under control along with home monitoring. I know dietary changes are not enough for everyone but maybe it could help work with the medicine to help you feel better?
