Blood Pressure: There are multiple alternatives to this. They are affected by a number of factors such as heart rate, kidney function, cardiac risk factors, leg swelling etc. They include adding another medication such as amlodipine, hydrochlorothiazide, ace inhibitors, arb's, or even just increasing the toprol (metoprolol) dose. Talk to your doctor about this.
