I have a high systolic blood pressure problem. I am under Dr. care and am on six blood pressure meds, however my problem persists. It makes me weak when the meds kick in and unable to perform regular activities. Should I seek an exert in blood diseases or just continue my current program?

Pauline :

Being on a combination of blood pressure medication can leave you feeling tired. You should see your usual doctor to discuss side effects. You need an ECG and a 24 hour BP monitor to give a all round picture. It may be that some medication could be taken at bedtime when feeling tired would not be a problem.

Pauline :

Do not stop anything until you see your doctor next.
