I am Aroop , and my mum is 82 with high BP especially at night when she sleeps. It has been a long road of trials and errors (I am mechanical engineer). I had blindly accepted to take medication (for mum) , and never really checked the facts. She was prescribed medication to be taken in fixed dose every day. She had collapsed several times due to to low BP , so I started to measure her BP every day more often , and now I do this every hour. I come to notice that her BP spikes 180/100 or more only during the night when she sleeps. So now I break the 5mg tablet into quarters , which does help bring it down. I was advised to limit to 5mg per 24 hours .. so this is what I do now and its working better than before.
But every time I need to wake her up for this 1/4 tablet , then after she does not fall asleep ... so the BP goes up again.
1. I had been asking companies to help design a continuous BP machine , and 1 company has taken my idea and stopped talking to me ! .. so now I am waiting for this product to launch ..
2. I am asking if I can give a liquid version of this tablet ? as crushing it and mixing with water for syringe-feed while mum is asleep , is possible but I will never be sure on the dosage given ?
3. Any ideas on how to lower the BP in any other way please ? any other medication ? or natural ideas that work ?
