Congratz on getting your BP down. I was on lisinopril 10mg a day but they had to take me off. I have my BP down to normal and they have me on Hydrochlorothiazide 25mg/ Enalapril 20mg/ and Metoprolol 50mg daily. It finally took all 3 combination to get mine down. I have said it in other posts and linked sites concerning the meds but once you are on a med for HBP there is virtually no chance of ever stopping the meds. Good luck with you tracking and once again, congratz.

Thanks - Sunny I take supplements, and drink plenty of milk, so I'm good on the Vit D

Sounds like you are doing very well!

May I add here, to ask your Dr. for a blood level of Vitamin D . This is an essential vitamin in maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system. It is OFTEN LOW in most Americans.

Well team, it seems I've hit that threshold for my body. In a visit to the Doctors the other day, I was told my BP was normal. Now I'm bad about taking my meds everyday and my BP would be in the 140/80 range. With that news I have to start record my BP, and more than likely come OFF my meds............

Michael

PS- I am taking 20mg of Lisinopril a day
