Cardiology Questions Answered by Verified Cardiologists.
Hello I'm Dr Chip
Thank you for all that information
Did you have a specific question about this?
What's his AM BP before he takes those pills?
Were I his doctor, I would add another 180 mg of the Diovan at night to have his AM pressure better stabilized
So I suggest he let his cardiologist know about this
Please let me know if you need any more information
And what is the night time BP running now?
Then as a different approach I would give him 50 mg of metoprolol at night
That shouldn't drop his PM pressure but it would help to drop his AM pressure
It's a beta blocker medication
And yes indeed an Omega 3 fatty acid would definitely help
Well since that pressure is only high for a few hours it's less likely it would cause a stroke but it still should be treated
My pleasure helping you here
