Phentermine Alone Cause Hypertension
A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating.

Taking Benicar (olmesartan) 40/ hct 12.5 but my potassium is 3.0 as the diuretic is causing potassium loss. Any other meds to control htn & replace hctz diuretic?

If the pituitary tumor is a mixed tumor where there is excessive acth secreted or growth hormone secretion, these hormones in excess can cause hypertension.
