I recently started taking high blood pressure medication and I bought one of those home blood pressure kits that wraps around your wrist, takes your pressure, and says it back to you.
After a few weeks to find the correct dosage (Lisinopril 5 mg) my pressure is now an average 120/73, which is a normal reading. Hallelujah! (Normal is 120/70)
So this is a big relief to me to have this under control. It didn't begin running high until this year. I had a physical in March and all was well but by May it was way high.
Stress is a mutha.
