Avoid psuedophedrine: The decongestant i rec to my pts is chlorocedin-hbp. Will not raise BP or raise heart rate.

Usually: Regular exercise is a good way to help control high blood pressure. If you've been diagnosed with high blood pressure it's also very important to take your medication. Anyone with uncontrolled high blood pressure should not lift weights. So if you don't know whether your high blood pressure is controlled, see your doctor before joining a gym.
