Today my blood pressure...

Today my blood pressure is 167 over 103. it has been running high lately and I am on meds for it. BY lately I mean the last month or so.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Metformin 500mgx2; atorvastatin 20mgx; meloxiam 15x1 sertraline 100x2

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

Not really. the Meloxicam is for a shoulder injury and I've only been on it for about a month.

Hello I'm Dr Chip

What medication are you taking for high blood pressure and what's the dosage please?

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Amlod-benazp 20 mg x1

OK

It would seem that your high blood pressure isn't well controlled with that right now

You need to let your doctor know about this since you need an increase in that medication

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
