Good evening, yes, my husband suffers with high blood pressure. he took his medicine and supplement at 2:30 PST, and as of now, his blood pressure is 129/90. What can I do to get it lowered?

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Is there a history of high blood pressure in your family?

My husband doesn't remember, blood pressure does run in his family.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Is he on medications?

Customer reply replied 12 months ago
the name of his medications are: Micardis, 20mg, and hydrochlorothiazide, 12.5th.

It is not a bad blood pressure.

We would not treat that.

He should rest to help bring down the blood pressure.

If it continues to be in that range, you will need to up one of the medications with recommendations per his primary care doctor.

I hope this helps!

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
