I do regular exercise, try decreasing my anxiety, and lessened the sugar quantity, and now my blood pressure has lowered and I am getting normal. Thanks.

So far just 10 mg amlodipine, hydrochlorothiazide (water pill) once a day and potassium pills twice a day have been working for my high blood pressure for the last 3 weeks; until today for some reason it was elevated. And it hasn't been for a while.

I have used lisinopril for high blood pressure, for a long time. It helps, no problems.

I am both a high blood pressure patient and caregiver. Best treatment for hypertension (began as a teenager, white coat hypertension caused by abusive father) is exercise and sports. I personally suggest tennis. You can burn significant calories while having fun and you can do it all your life.
