I'm glad your blood pressure is much better

yes, you should continue to take your blood pressure as your doctor prescribed to you.

taking your blood pressure medication this past week has helped normalize your blood pressure.

you should continue to take it and monitor your blood pressure and heart rate.

taking your blood pressure medication will keep your blood pressure in this normal range.

Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Your blood pressure is on the lower side.

You should not take both the medications as that can lower your blood pressure further.

You should continue with bystolic for noe.

Amlodipine dose can be held.

Keep monitoring your blood pressure.

If it goes higher than 140/90, then amlodipine 5 mg daily can be added.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.

your blood pressure is not on the low side.

117/74 with 74 pulse is a completely normal blood pressure.

I would not change your blood pressure medication regimen without talking to your doctor first.

you should continue your current regimen.

staying on the same regimen is the best way to maintain a steady blood pressure level.

let me know if you have other questions.
