Although 80 my blood pressure has always been good except at the doctors(white coat syndrom).
I have just finished 7 months of (folfox) chemo for colon cancer when the blood pressure remained good.
However after finishing chemo the side effects especially peripheral neuropathy became much worse and I became very angry with my situation as the oncologist gave me a bad chest cold and also I had been led to believe side effects would go when chemo stopped. My blood pressure increased to to the165 92 level and my docter prescribed a combination pill of amlodopine and valsartan. The blood pressure reduced in a week and soon ws in the region of 114 63. However the side effects were bad and the doctor prescribed a new pill. I was on the previous pils for two months.
I reviewed my position and came to the conclusion that my anger was the problem and made a big effort to let things go.
I have been off the pills for three weeks and the readings are still very good at 120 70 .
Anybody have an idea as to how long the active life of the pills would beafterstopping them?
