I've had high BP for around a year.
My numbers were around 140-160/90-100.
I started 5mg amlopidine 1 week ago.
On Friday I got my BP checked and it was 130/77 so I was happy and thought the medication was working.
Today I went to a pharmacy and got the following readings:
after a while we got it down to 160/100.
im soooo confused as to why my bp has turned from OK on Friday to malignant today!
The pharmacist thinks it might of been stress and that the 165/132 may of been a glitch.
But this is still very concerning.
I confess that I did have a heavy weekend for 2 nights in a row and was tired today (could this be behind it).
Ive passed on the numbers to my GP but I feel so stressed (not helping i know) and cant believe im getting these readings when im on medication.
An investigation has already been ran on me and no cause could be found.
😕 any words of advice or encouragement would be appreciated
