My hypertension had been pretty much under control in the past two years and I was down 12.5 mg of losartan a day.
With worsening insomnia perhaps two sleeps of about two hours and a later dose between 6 and 7.30 am my BP in the past two or there months has been very erratic and for the first time my brain and body are feeling the effects of it. I'm happy if my BP is around the 140/80 mark but I have been getting readings of 210+/110 but my heart rate stays around 70 bpm. I do have a pacemaker and I'm in permanent AF although I mostly do not notice it even though the pacemaker clinic recently told me that it had recorded an instance of 191 bpm just after midnight the previous week. If I increase losartan to 25mg morning and night or perhaps if I'm very relaxed by bed time it can go down to 114/69 but by morning it is mostly up to about 180/90.
When I waken in the night I don't lay there worrying it about I get for about 45 minutes each time and have some hot milk and a biscuit. I've been taking CBD oil for the past six months. It's made me more relaxed about the situation but has not helped my insomnia.
