My BP has been out of whack. I've had issues with it before but it never added up to much and went away when I got in shape. Lately it's been going way up. I'm trying to adiust the doasge on the meds with Dr., but it doesn't seem to getting better. It's starting to scare me some. Anyone else have similar experiences??

Yea, had the same problem but have it under control now. However, I am on 50 mg Coreg and 40 mg Accupril a day and I had to slowly work up to that dosage. If someone was to take that dosage as a starting dosage it would put them flat on their backs. It does cause a little fatigue but I get by.

 

It just takes time to build up to the necessary dosage that will properly control the blood pressure. My cardiologist has been real good about explaining things to me, many like to keep you in the dark about the medicine but mine just tells me what to expect from day 1.

 

Hope this helps.

Double your pleasure! Double your fun!

I recently started to have problems. I am on Lisinopril and it is keeping it under control. I hated to start taking medicine for it, but I have a stressful job and a history of heart disease on my father's side of the family. I have no side effects from it.

Thanks for both of your replies. I'm on Lisinorpril now but haven't seemed to have gotten it right yet. I'll be working more with my Dr. in the near future. I'm confident I'll get it under control. My father had horrible BP problems, but stayed on top of it. It's amazing that he's still in decent shape at 95. I think a big factor is I've been lazy lately and not working out properly like I usually do. When I am in LOS I walk my ass off everyday, miles. I need to retire and get the fuck over there...

One of the main factors in high blood pressure is weight. The best thing you can do for your blood pressure is to achieve and maintain an ideal weight. Nothing, including medication, is better to keep your blood pressure under control. Weight control also relieves stress from your knees so they will last longer and weight loss may also reduce snoring.

 

If your weight is already ideal (as per your doctor), than your problem is pathophysiologic and diet and/or medication is necessary. There are three causes of high blood pressure and therefore only three goals of treatment.

 

1. Too much fluid in your system - Reducing your intake of salts will control that and the doctor may give a diuretic medication which makes you pee more often and thus reduces the amout of fluid.

 

2. Blood vessels too constricted - Smoking is the number one cause of this problem. Doctor may give you medication such as "ACE Inhibitors" in order to allow your blood vessels to relax more and lower your BP.

 

3. Heart working too hard - Another problem which could be caused by smoking. Smoking reduces the amount of oxygen reaching your cells so the heart tries to work harder to make up for it. Doctor may put you on a Beta-Blocker (usually ends in ...lol; such as Metoprolol"). This medication reduces the workload on your heart.

 

Since these are the only three causes of high blood pressure, some people are on medications to fix one and others are on medications to fix all three at the same time.

 

High blood pressure, 150/90 or higher is serious. The top number (systolic) is when the heart is pumping and goes up and down all the time. The bottom number (diastolic) is more important and is when the heart is relaxing. This number should be constant and should be between 80 - 90 in mature adults. The absolute best treatment is keeping an ideal weight and exercise regularly; without becoming a fanatic...you don't have to run in the rain or snow.

 

Hope this helps

I'm on Toprol, which helps the BP and also slows the heart rate. I've been on it for a couple of years since a heart attack and my Cardiologist seems to think it's working well.

 

I feel pretty good and am in much better health than three years ago, when I could hardly boom boom, my heart was so weak.

 

Now I'm up to three times per day if the girl is exciting enough.

 

I'm 59 years old. 6 feet 1 and 250 lbs, (115 K), so I need to lose about 12% of my weight to really get into good shape.

 

All the best,

Thanks very much for this. I thought I knew a fair amount about BP, but the way you put it here really hits home and makes sense. I'll be bringing this info to my Dr. within the next couple of days. I think the Dr. and I have to work better together on getting the meds right. I think I know what the real culprit is - smoking. The day is coming - I now have to quit because I may drop if I don't. I've tried many times but it's always because it was the smart thing to do. Now it's because I have to.

 

Thanks again!

I suffer from HBP, never smoked, I pretty much watch my diet, I would consider myself to being on the higher side of my ideal weight - ok I would ideally like to lose 20-25lbs - my doctor has put if down to excessive alcohol intake from my early 20's to 35 years old or so, I'm 40 years old now and have been taking various pills for around 4 years now - currently taking enalapril maleate - one or two of the others have resulted in side effects ie. worsening of the psoriasis that I suffer or swollen legs etc.

I still drink but certainly not in the excess that I used to, and I still enjoy my trips to Patts. I take a slight risk with viagra - although I personally don't class it as a risk, don't know if the doc would agree though!

Hmm. Never knew drinking alcohol could have a residual risk like this. What sort of alcohol consumption are we talking? Were you drinking every day in that period or was it just weekend binge drinking?

 

i am worried now. Last time I had mine takenw as a couple of years ago it was a bit high. Might have been 135 over something or other. Can't remember but the doc said it was a bit high.

I just got back from the DR. We're going to go with a different medication. The thing with BP is that each person responds to different medications.

 

Cookmeister, yes alcohol is a big factor. Especially if there are other factors (genetics, smoking, weight, diet, fitness level...). The thing is if you know it's been up in the past it eventually catches up to you and can explode as you get older. If you stay on top of it most likely you can control it. If not it can really fuck you up, heart attack, stroke, kidney problems. I don't want any of those interfering with my plans to fuck as many hotties as I can in my retirement.

 

If you have it, most likely it will get worse. Why let it fuck you up when there are ways to take care of it?

 

Get it checked, and if need be find the right medicine for it.

I would never have classed myself as an alcoholic, but doctors and alcoholism councillors would probably disagree. Yes I was drinking pretty much every day during the period, you know a few beers ie. premium lager or a cider, after work for a couple of hours - sometimes most of the evening, but certainly there were not many days that I did not go to the bar in the evening, and certainly had many more during the weekends. I seemed to develop an imunity to hangovers etc. Now I just usually keep it for the weekends, even then it's not every one - but it does not stop me when I am on holiday though!!

The booze factor, is like some of the other factors and they add up over time. Eventually you may see a rise in BP and if it contiues to progress, it can really hit you. You can only tell if you get it checked from time to time. If it keeps going up it's time to make some changes and/or get on medicaiton.

Mines under control , just about

Coversylplus + (4 mg Perindopril + 1.25 mg Indapamide)

Felodipine 5 mg

Plus

Atorvastatin 10mg To reduce cholesterol

75mg EC Aspirin

 

Weight is certainly a factor a specialist told me 1kg loss equals 1 point reduction on BP (Sistolic and Diastolic)

 

I've seen some reports that Statins can cause reduced libido . but that you can skip a few weeks withoiut detriment to the cholesterol levels

Anyone have any knowledge?

The bad news is you can't skip a few weeks of statins, in fact you shouldn't even skip a day. Also, if you have muscle pain with statins, try using CO-Q10, cured it for me. The good news is I haven't noticed any loss of libido with Lipitor. I take 10 mg., as you do. This is considered a very small dose.

But then there's this item from The Times October 11, 2007

 

People who take cholesterol-lowering drugs are protected from heart disease and premature death years after they stop taking them, a major study has shown.

The advice here about weight and the booze is right. The next thing I need to start is regular exercise (apart from shagging!)

 

I suffer from High BP myself and have been on 10mg of Amlodipine (I think that's the name) for the last 7-8 years. Did switch temporarily another one but my BP went off the rails again so I'm back on the Amlodipine which does dampen the libido. Can anyone recommend a BP drug that doesn't interfere with natural body drives??!!

 

Does anyone know if this can be taken safely with the likes of Viagra, Cialis or another drug? I've taken Viagra before and it works for me when the Amlodipine starts interfering (the Doc prescribed me some to test it) but it makes me feel that I'm having a all body 'flush' and light headed for 20-30 mins before it calms down. Combine that with alcohol and I'm not keen on the potential effects and dangers.

:D

I've read that excercise is the number 1 thing you can do for good health. Even trumps quitting smoking and propr diet.

 

Even if it is just walking. You can get enormous benefits from it, and it is fun. A ton of cool places to go and see. Start gradually and before you know it you can't stop. After a while you will want to start lifting weights or doing other things. It's amazing how much it can improve your life, and how easy it is. Makes sex tons better.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
