Im on bystolic for high blood pressure but ive been working out pretty hard for about a year. Is it ok to take creatine?
I have mild high blood pressure and take a new med called losartin 50 mgs. What could cause the creatine to be elevated then?

You may need another agent to control your bp. See a n for more answers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
