Hello my name is***** am a board-certified physician and I am happy to help you. Just a few questions please: What medication are you taking, is it a blood pressure medicine? Have you ever had high blood pressure before? Are you in any pain, having headache, double vision or nausea/vomiting?

i have and I'm on amlodipine. No symptoms

Thank you for that information. 167/105 is certainly elevated, but in and of itself not necessarily a reason to proceed to the emergency room/hospital. As long as you are not experiencing any of the more concerning symptoms I mentioned, I recommend you continue taking your medication as prescribed and contact your physician in the morning to schedule an appointment. He/She can re-check your blood pressure in the office and consider increasing your current dose and/or adding any other high blood pressure medicines to return your BP back to normal again. Can I help with anything else?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
