BPgoals & MedRequest: In general a systolic blood pressure between 110-135 is a good range for someone taking medications. There are special reasons that some doctors may change the goal blood pressure for a patient. Some physicians use higher blood pressure goals for elderly patients. Healthtap while useful for healthtips and generic questions is not a spot for specific questions. Talk to you doc for medications.
