My blood pressure is 120/100.  My blood pressure never runs high. Should I worry?

Diagnosing high BP: High blood pressure typically requires multiple readings in different areas (not just the doctor's office). If you are not feeling well, then I do recommend getting treatment as soon as possible. But it is something you should monitor. Check it again later, and again a few days later, and once again next week. This will give you a better idea of your actual pressure. ...Read more

I am on water pill and atenolol for high blood pressure. In the mornings my blood pressure is around 85/60 with heart rate 57. Is this too low?

I am on water pill and atenolol for high blood pressure.  In the mornings my blood pressure is around 85/60 with heart rate 57.  Is this too low?

Yes.: That blood pressure is too low. It does not seem like you have any reason to keep the BP that low.

Please see your doctor as soon as possible. ...Read more
