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?
