I take amlodipine besylate 10mg + lisinopril 40mg + metoprolol 25mg, but because it is a holiday, of course, my blood pressure is sky high, 197/101 at the lowest. How can I lower it fast? I need help.

Hi Babs,

Sorry to hear about your condition. I think from an outside perspective, the most I can suggest is to simply find ways to remain calm and stress-free throughout the day. It's always easier said than done, but if it were me, I may consider practicing meditation, taking a moment to stop whatever I'm doing & giving myself a break from reality (or other relaxing strategies you come up with). Some deep breathing exercises may be beneficial as well.

Also, from a dietary standpoint, I'd find ways to cut back on sodium, heavily processed foods and any artificial ingredients or stimulants, whilst consuming more fresh fruits & veggies.

I hope this helps. Please post back if you find something that works well for you!

Re: David (# 1)

Cranberry juice will bring blood pressure down. Avocado will also. Eat a banana. Potassium helps decrease the sodium.
