My bp meds have had to be changed several times. They work fine for a little while, then stop working. Sometimes it seems like just trial and error. I do know that when I slacked up on the exercise, my BP went up and meds increased; when I got serious about exercising again, it went back down and meds went back down.

One day at a time; one pound at a time.

I am on 3 BP meds to stay under control and stay away from prepared foods, they are loaded with sodium. I try for a plant based diet. emoticon emoticon

I also keep a close eye on my sodium intake. Most days it is between 1500-1800. I take medicine every day and hope to someday get off of it, but being that both of my parents had high blood pressure it may be partly genetic. I am still going to try by watching what I eat, exercising and losing weight. Maybe your doctor has some suggestions that you might try.

I find that I have to keep my sodium below 1800 mg. Its been recommended that they should change the max to 1500 mg. How low do you keep yours?

What does your doctor say about this? Chris

Today I stop and think before putting anything into my mouth. HALT! Hungry? Angry? Lonely? Tired?

I am doing all the things I am supposed to do, take my meds, watch what I eat, exercise. But I am not seeing a drop in my BP. I hate my meds, but want to make sure I don't stroke out, what am I missing
