If it stays normal, then you might return to infrequent checks, perhaps every month or two. We are hardly ever able to identify specifically what causes these spikes, but they are common and considered normal. Good wishes:) ...Read more

If you want more detail, please re-ask your question with the actual BP#. ...Read more

If you still are hypertensive on metoprolol then perhaps a dosage adjustment or additional medication is needed. ...Read more
