if your blood pressure is 169/100 do i need to go to the hospital
greetings and thankyou for using justanswer!
What is your age/sex?
How long are you having this high blood pressure?
Are you taking any drugs or medication?
Any associated chest pain, difficulty in breathing?
did you consult a doctor yet?
64yr old female. having trouble since march 1 had a TIA. Yes taking prinivil havent for 2 days
No chest pain havent consulted anyone else
thankyou for the information,
The prinivil contains lisinopril and is used to treat the high blood pressure.You have not taken the drug for the past 2 days so you should take it now itself as the continuous high blood pressure can make you sick.
Though the BP of 169/100 is NOT very high enough and it will be under control once you take the prinivil drug in the dose prescribed for you.You may consult a doctor if you experience the simultaeous chest pain, difficulty in braething, palpitation as the associated symptoms.
Let me know if you have any doubt.
