Blood Pressure Plan

Adding only 2 mg of terazosin seems seems to have brought down my pressure. I've been more responsive to terazosin than to any drug I've tried recently.
It seems that the maximum recommended dose 20 mg a day and that 10 mg is not uncommon.

The plan at the moment shall be to see how I am reacting to 4 mg. If 4 mg brings my pressure to 139/79 or less great. If not I will try raising dosage in 2 mg steps up to a maximum of 10 mg.
If that doesn't do the trick, I'll need a new plan

Pressure right now 206/120 pr 60. Average pressure is 180/104 pr 57.
I experienced this jump up in pressure after I had been dealing with this diarrhea for over a year.
Most of that time I had been treating that diarrhea as a parasitic infestation when most of the time it probably was not. It took me 17 months to get an America doctor to do cultures. What a waste of time and health!
When I finally got a doctor and a lab to help me the lab through out my first 9 samples because of a dispute with the doctor!
Still have diarrhea.
Have had out of control blood pressure for six months.
Right hip has been giving me a period of really disturbing pain most mornings.

Pressure medication
terazosin 4mg
metoprolol 200 mg
amlodipine 10 mg
enlalapril 40 mg

175/100 pr61. Not good, but about the same as it was when I was taking more medication. Still I am taking fairly large amounts of four different medications right now.


Bp is down to 147/91 pr62 now at 1:45 pm.
What about most of the night and all morning??


Morning Med

An hour after taking morning medication my pressure is 169/108 pr 68.
I'll start looking for a new doctor next week.


Blood pressure is back up to around 210/113 with a pulse rate of 63.
At the moment its 174/131 and pr of 70.
Recent average has been 185/109.
I don't know what to do.
Six months ago my pressure was under control and had been for years. Now neither my doctor nor myself seem to be able to do anything about it.
I guess its time to look for a new doctor.
