    No, I'm sorry. I didn't mean it as an insult joy. Sometimes it's hard to say how we mean things but it wasn't in a bad way. More of a goofing around sort of way.

    You are paying doctors a fee for a service, if you can't work with one get another. It's your right to choose a doctor who will actually help you. I've found that GP's and internists are the most helpful, also a nurse practitioner knows alot without the attitude.

    Believe I know nothing about blood pressure problems but I heard from a doctor on TV the there is a study out saying to take your medicine at night. It seem to be more effective. You may want to ask your doc about this. Good luck and I hope you start feeling bettersoon.

    I spoke to my NP/Nurse and told her about my problem and asked if it might be the med doing it. She suggested maybe we might try another one so I agreed. She prescribed atenolol. Is a similar Beta blocker but lower dose and fewer side efects. We'll have to see how it works out. Just a bit nervous about the transition period.

    I'm sorry you are having such a hard time with your BP and the meds. I can understand, I fight that battle about all the time. It's never fun to start changing things around. My will not stay stablized. I guess it will always be that way.

    You take care and be careful to keep a watch on it when you do change. I'm sure you already know this. Just take care anyway, ok? I'm old and bossy, mean no harm. I just hate so many have so many problems here, but glad we have BrainTalk!

    take care, Julia

    I suspect I may have what's known as "Labile" bood pressure. It seems to wildly fluctuate. One minute I'm fine, the next I am close to fainting then I go high again. I wish I knew what causes this. It's really hard to plan anything since how I feel can change in an instant from ok to terrible. When I go out it can only be for a very, short time otherwise I increase the risk of getting into trouble out there.

    I haven't actually been diagnosed with it, but from all the online reading I do it sure sounds like it.

    barque ,

    what about asking your doc about biofeedback? you learn how to stay calm about things and how to calm down when you are agitated by working with a machine and therapist that helps you with your thoughts and shows you how the machine tells you that your bp is getting lower. i think biofeedback works great for a lot of probs...maybe as an addition to meds to help control your bp?
