I was curious about what follow up treatment you got when diagnosed with hypertension.
I was diagnosed, I had stage 2 hypertension and put on pills. I was told to come back in two weeks after blood test. I did and the dose was increased. They seemed surprised that I did come back. note Imade the apointment on my own initiative. They increased dosage as pills not working and then thats it.
I havent been asked to make any follow up appointments to see if the drugs are actually working.
I wasnt asked to monitor my bp at home.
Given no advice as to what level the bp should be reduced to by the drugs so if I hadnt ask would not know if pills working.
Due to the impossibilty of getting same doctor Ive seen many and none seemed concerned by my bp. Its not as high as some but I wouldve though 150/110+ was not great!
