I am trying to regulate my recently diagnosed hypertension. I am on metoprolol and amlodipine I am supposed to be taking my blood pressure twice daily yesterday and today it has been 145/95 to 148/100 do I need to be worried or just contact my cardiologist tomorrow ?

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

Definitely all family members last checked by cardiologist 10 days ago

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

Am on Seroquel and trintellix for 2 years

Ask Your Own Medical Question

How long have you been on the metoprolol and the amlodipine and what are the dosages?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
metoprolol 150 mg for 2 months amlodipine 5 mg for 6 weeks

Right now your blood pressure isn't dangerously high but it seems obvious you need an increase in your medication

I'd opt for increasing the amlodipine to 10 mg

So let your cardiologist know about this tomorrow

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.
