Blood Pressure Overview

Blood pressure (BP) is the pressure of circulating blood against the walls of blood vessels. Most of this pressure results from the heart pumping blood through the circulatory system. When used without qualification, the term "blood pressure" refers to the pressure in the large arteries.

My PCP prescribed Hydralazine to treat my BP after taking amlodipine, metoprolol, and carvidelol - not working for me. I was hoping that this hydralazine will work for me, 10mg bid 2 only.

Having trouble sleeping at night and was wondering if propranolol would help as they slow your heart beat? ## No, it is not safe to try to use them to induce sleep. Propranolol can cause some drowsiness as a side effect, but it is actually most commonly used to help lower high blood pressure and improper use of it can be dangerous, due to the fact that it can lower your heart rate and blood pressure. You can learn more Propranolol details here. Thus, the first thing you need to do is get to the root of the problem. What is causing you to have trouble sleeping?

Coversyl Effect and BP Readings

I take Coversyl for high blood pressure. In the mornings my BP is usually around 137 over 96. In the evenings it has consistently been around 106 over 77. Why such a difference? I take the Coversyl in the mornings, would it stop having an effect after 24 hours? ## Is your morning check done, before you take your medication, or before it has a chance to start working? If so, that would explain it being slightly higher in the mornings. A different evening reading can be explained by your activity, diet, other medications you may be taking, and etc. It is normal for it to fluctuate throughout the day, you will not really ever get readings that are consistently the same. You can learn more here from the AHA. (American Heart Association) Are you on any other medications? Do you drink anythi...
