Hi everyone

I just thought I would start a new thread to let you know that the Beta Blockers seem to be doing the trick with the Blood Pressure:) Its been good all day long - currently at 118/86 which is in the normal range. Earlier on it was 126/66 - actually in the LOW range! :hehe:

The tablets I'm on for the BP are: Cardicor 5mg (Beta Blocker), Coversyl 10mg (Ace Inhibitor), Istin 5mg (Calcium Channel Blocker) and furosemide 20 - 40 mg (diuretic - dose depending on edema)

Thanks for your warm wishes and advice in my last thread. Im very relieved to finally be getting this under control.

Take care everyone and have a good weekend
Luv n stuff
Joan:rose:

I am very glad to hear this Joan.
I hope you'll have a relatively stress free time now so maybe you can reduce the meds a bit. Hum my BP usually about 127/70 which they say is good. I say it's a bloomin' marvel for an ancient nervous wreck.

Hugs

Hi Joan!

I'm thrilled for you! I know others who had to try a few meds before they found the one that works best. I hope this combination continues to do the the trick.
