    brandon0934...You stated you'd lost quite a bit of weight. This is a GREAT thing, & certainly does help blood pressure. I don't know what your weight numbers mean, but it's obvious you are not here in Canada. If you are still overweight, it wouldn't be a bad idea to try to lose a few more pounds., but I'm not taking away from you the fact that you've done a great job in getting the weight off. Also, keep up your activity whatever it is that you're doing/done. Even walking 45min/day helps.

    Remember, blood pressure does spike. You can have a certain reading one minute, then it can be quite a bit higher the next. This is completely normal. Certain thoughts, emotion, etc.etc.

    changes the reading. If you had reading say of 125/78...then suddenly it went to 170/80; then I'd wonder. A few points here/there isn't anything to worry about.

    Like I say...I would need more information.

    You've been on the Mavik since August...what is the dosage???

      Ok..if it's just a few spikes here or there, I wouldn't worry about it, unless like I said previously, it's a gigantic spike.

      I think you're just fine., but I'm not a doctor..just someone with a lot of experience.

    Just keep exercising, lowering the dosage of medications can also cause weight to fall faster.
