    RE: Uncontrolled hypertension

    I have the same problem. It has been since my heart rate has been dropping. The doctor suggested it may be bradycardia. They don’t seem too interested. Last time the paramedics took me to the hospital my BP was 220/130 and I was treated like a pest! I take labetalol, amlodapine, and valsartin. I don’t know what to do either.
