Stop the insanity :): There are many ways to control blood pressure. Most people need between 2 and 3 medications, some on 4. I have had people on more than that. If your blood pressure is resistant to medications, then one must consider secondary causes such as overproduction of adrenaline (epinephrine), aldosterone or cortisol. These can be evaluated mostly by lab testing. Good luck.

Not much: However, there are very, very inexpensive medications that are effective. Generic drugs such as hydrochlorothiazide and Lisinopril cost only $10 for a 3 month supply as walmart, target, and most pharmacies. Go to a free clinic or pay for a visit and get started on these or similar meds.

What foods could lower high blood pressure?

Fewer foods: If you're overweight, losing weight, ie eating less food, will lower your blood pressure. Avoiding excess sodium chloride (table salt) will also lower bp. There aren't any effective foods that will actively lower your BP - it's all about what you don't eat.
