    Uncontrolled hypertension

    I have been hypertensive for over 30 years. Last 5 years it has been uncontrolled. The meds that bring my pressure
    down out me in hospital.drops heart rate and I pass out. I am on meds now that helps some (better than nothing] they give me side effects also. They put me to bed. I can no longer drive. What do I Do? B.p.always over 200. I take labetalol 3 times a day. Lisinopril once a day. Catapress patch weekly.
    Water pill every day. Any one else with this problem? If so how was it resolved?

    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.

    RE: Uncontrolled hypertension

    I have found that Viagra works to lower my bp the only problem is it has a short life 5 hrs or so. You must be careful as it can really lower you pressure. use small dose 25mg. This is not a solution as I still wake up with 187/85 or higher. I am still looking for a better treatment.
