Is capapril good for blood pressure?

Captopril v Capapril: Assuming you mean Captopril, which is one of many ACE inhibitors, then yes, it's good for treating/lowering high blood pressure. However, because it needs to be taken several times a day, we usually prescribe something like Lisinopril instead. The good news is that they're relatively inexpensive, say $4/mo. ACE inhibitors also protect your heart & kidneys if you have heart failure and/or diabetes.

Help! Is 107/78 blood pressure good?

Help! Is 107/78 blood pressure good?

Yes but only if. .: We normally state that best blood pressure is the lowest one can tolerate while standing upright w/o feeling faint, weak, dizzy or woozy. Or something like that. In other words, as long as you're asymptomatic (feeling just fine), don't worry about lower numbers. But if numbers are high (greater than 140-150/90) despite being asymptomatic, then we worry about stroke, heart failure & chronic kidney

My blood pressure was170 is that good r bad.?

My blood pressure was170 is that good r bad.?

Generally bad: Normal blood pressure is less than 120/80. However high blood pressure begins anything over 140/90. Anybody can have an occasional elevation. But as you can see, that number is elevated. If repeated measurements are elevated that would indicate that you have high blood pressure and should be treated. We treat when there are 2-3 elevated readings on different days at different times.
