How long does it take for B/P meds to really work?
My husband was just diagnosed with high B/P, 02/11/08..He has been taking his meds faithfully and i have totally changed my cooking habits, no sodium,baking,broiling and boiling foods,he has also stopped smoking (cold turkey)...In our home there are my husband,son and myself..we are totally supporting him,and eating the same was he is...His B/P starting out on 2/11 was 214/110 pulse-75. this morning its down to 165/92 pulse-71.He got upset said it wasnt dropping any at all...(He frecks out over every little thing) which honestly drives me crazy...I am trying to assure him that his B/P has dropped and he is doing wounderful...He has also lost 7 lbs. My question is how long does the meds. take to really show a drop and stay there?

Is it possible to withdraw from blood pressure meds, either tapering or cold turkey while keeping your blood pressure at a normal level? Or will I have to keep taking them for the rest of my life? Any thoughts?
Does anyone know if Prednisone, Metoprololor or Amiodipine have any side effects like heartburn from taking it on an empty stomach? Just trying to narrow the pills that I am taking to find out which pills I might have to take on a full stomach to avoid this one annoying side effect....

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
