    I was at the Dr. the other day and my BP was 144/86. I have ben on lisinopril 20mg and my Dr. changed it to lisinopril 40mg. I took it about 3 days and became very dazy for about 3 days. So I stopped the BP medicine and started back on 20mg and am not dizzy any more. So I assume the 40mg brought my BP too low. What do you think. Thanks Laura

      Hi Laura, sorry to hear that you’re feeling dizzy after taking lisinopril 40mg. Sometimes our body feel uncomfortable in taking higher dosage of medicine. But it’s best to consult your doctor about your condition to decide a more proper dosage or other alternatives. Take care 🙂

    Hi I am currently 9 months pregnant and today I got very hot and felt weak and had excessive sweating. My mom has a digital blood pressure cuff and during this I took it , which was 94/55 with a pulse of 90. It kind of freaked me out so I took another one a couple minutes later which was 105/50 with a pulse of 93. And last one I took was 107/55 with a pulse of 81. Does this sound normal for someone whose pregnant? I always thought high blood pressure was the issue not low. Just very curious, thanks.

    Hi Susan, I am 62 and my normal systolic blood pressure for my age, based on your charts, varies from normal to mid highs but my Diastolic reading is low to mid 70’s. Any thoughts?
