I am 40 years old, gave birth to my third child via C-section and developed hypertension my third day in the hospital. This was my first experience with high blood pressure. My doctor put me on labetalol since I was and still am nursing and he thought the problem would resolve itself in a month or two. It is now nine months and my blood pressure is normal but only becuase of the Labelalol. How long should this last - I want to stop taking the Labetalol.
