Please excuse me if I'm being repetitive but new issues have arisen. I had a small heart attack in May. No stents. Being treated medically. Biso was cut down from 2.5 to 1.25 and I was on 2.5 of ramipril amongst all the other stuff. At the beginning of September my consultant said I was doing very well and could stop bisoprolol. Everything great until 2 weeks later when blood pressure shot up and my GP put me on 5 mg ramipril and back on 1.25 bisoprolol. My blood pressure went back to normal but what I'm now experiencing is that, late afternoon, my blood pressure rises and I am physically conscious of this. It's as if the effects of the drugs are beginning to wear off and I become less zombie like at which point my blood pressure increases. Currently taking ramipril in the morning and bisoprolol in the evening. Sleeping for about 10-11 hours a night and generally fed up. Am currently monitoring my blood pressure twice a day. Maybe I shouldn't. Was walking daily. Less able to do so on current doses because am so lethargic. Never had any blood pressure problems prior to heart attack. No family history of heart disease. Eat a Mediterranean diet and have always exercised. Has anyone else experienced similar dramatic rises and falls of blood pressure? Blood pressure always at its lowest in the morning. Maybe I shouldn't have bought a blood pressure machine. Am I now addicted to taking my blood pressure?!
