You need to check your blood pressure not just "feel" it's high. Normally you can find a blood pressure booth at the nearest drugstore. It's free and will check you on the spot. If your pressure is high and you have taken your meds like you should then your meds may need changing, see your physician immediately.

Good advice.


I have had my doctor tell me "If your systolic is above 200 points, take another 3 mg of clonodine".



Before the recent housing price crash because of forclosures caused by wallstreet, 60% of all bankrupcies in America are because of medical/health problems.  This does not happen in

Canada, England, Japan, Switzerland, Germany, etc...


Did you know if you a USA citizen flew to New Zealand and had to have your gall bladder removed, it would be free. Oh well, New Zealand has lots of money and they can afford to be generous.


Go single payer health care.
