When My Blood Pressure Is Still To High A Couple Hours After Taking My Regular Dose Is It Ok To Take Another Pill To Try And Bring It Down

Been dealing with high blood pressure for a couple years. Have some times when it stays high longer than most days.. I take a .1 mg tablet. Is it safe to take another pill a couple hours later if it is still high

Answer

Hi Celestewestendorf: You must review any changes with your medications with your prescribing doctor before making any changes. He/She may want to make adjustments and would be interested in how your blood pressure is managed. Keeping your physician informed is vital for your physician to provide the best care for you.
