A 50-year-old female asked:

Laryngitis: Hello. This is possible as typically pneumonia can present with cold symptoms including sore throat. Not sure if you mean trouble berating b/c of sore throat or feeling of swelling in your throat. Any trouble swallowing your saliva? Have you looked in your throat? Any plaques or white/yellow lesions? Could be strep throat. If any fever or difficulty breathing from lungs, recommend you see a doc.

Medication: Hello. This is the lowest dose of the med. It is a combination diuretic designed to avoid low potassium, which can sometimes happen with diuretics. Like all BP meds, we always tell patients to monitor for common side effects like dizziness, fatigue.

HBP: Hello. A few simple rules about high bp. BP should always be measured at rest for a few minutes with arm elevated at heart level to be accurate. Digital machines are typically a little off so best to use a manual one if possible. High BP by definition is > 140/90. It takes 2 readings at least a week or so apart to imply a diagnosis. Typically a doc will recommend lifestyle changes before meds.
