120/70 .. 192/95: How often does this happen? Is it related to diet, alcohol, physical activity. If the value is 192/95 frequently enough to worry you, you must see a cardiologist. Hope all goes well and please keep me informed. ...Read more

Work on anxiety: Betapace=sotalol is used for arrythmias insead of BP. I suggest Cognitive Behavioral Therapy along with with mindfulness training for the anxiety.

Cozaar max dose is 100mg daily, so this could be adjusted if you are on lower dose. ...Read more
