    Getting old so I'm dealing with issues like this now. Tested high a month ago 150/100 and was prescribed liprinosil and took it accordingly, even doubling the dosage as needed. Failed my exam again today, went back to my doctor and was prescribed Amlodipine.

    I took all that in and prescribed myself some Dos Equis, because...I dont always have high blood pressure, but when i do there is no lack of salt.

    Increase water intake which in turn, causes you to piss and keep from retaining water. Limit sodium (or drink more water), do cardio and try supplements that have a mild diuretic affect like celery seed extract or hawthorn berries.

    From what i have heard, some patients need 3-4 medications before they get it all sorted out. For me, its a huge wake up call...

    Pretty sure every other old feck is sleeping peacefully while their blood pressure trickles ever so slowly downward....just taunting the rest of us here.

    You can reverse alot of your issues with doet or exercise probably mate. Or drink more and eat more shite and enjoy your short life. Hookers, cocaine and cardiac arrest for the win!

    drinking will raise your blood pressure ,I stopped drinking because of my BP ,my doctor can't give me medication because they have to study me for a few months to see if I can lower it.

    I have high blood pressure as well. I don't monitor my sodium intake enough and I know I don't get enough water on a daily basis.

    I think most people overlook how much sodium they're getting. Try tracking it if you don't already and make sure it stays below your daily limit.

    The potassium in bananas and yogurt are supposed to neutrify the salt. The thing about salt and water I'm not sure about is I read some people write that salt makes you retain extra water and that water makes your pressure high, but I thought the water makes the bad shit dissolve to improve the flow. I wish dumbshits didn't write articles.

    Try to listen to more favorite music, take daily walks which they say is good for overall health, eat yogurt & bananas, make serious effort to reduce salt intake. Get enough sleep. I think lack of sleep makes all sorts of stuff malfunction. Weight loss is also supposed to be good.
