No but: Amoxicillin doesn't raise the BP, but infection does.
I had a thyroidectmy in august of last year, my TSH is in range, I have high blood pressure after treatment, doc says is not related. Is it?
Not likely: If your TSH is normal, then your body feels that your levels are normal--it is not trying to lower or raise its levels by varying the TSH level. There are many causes of high blood pressure, high thyroid level is only one. How about family history, smoking, weight, sleep apnea, stress, some medications, salt intake, etc?See 1 more doctor answer
Depends on you: An erection relies on blood flow and pressure, thus all blood pressure medications can in theory cause ed. However, the beta blocker family has been the most notorious for causing these issues, but it is also one of the classes of pressure medications which contributes to the health of the heart. Even within the class, there are variations. Talk to your physician about your concerns to try options.
I just took my husbands blood pressure and it is 159 over94 he is 55 never had blood pressure problems before what is to high? When should he go to e
Normal is up to 130: Normal blood pressure is different in different individuals, but the norm is that the upper should not be higher than 130, and lowe not higher than 80. Your husband 's pressure is high, but not an emergency now, must see his doctor soon to recheck and discuss treatment.
Meds if over 140/90: Goal BP is under 120/80, and high BP is over 140/90. However, it also depends on whether you have underlying heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes, or prior TIA or strokes. In those more serious conditions we will have tighter control on bp. If you are using any stimulants like caffeine you should eliminate it. BP should be measured on 3 separate occasions in order to diagnose hypertension.See 1 more doctor answer
Varies: There's no one size fits all in medicine, but as a general rule blood pressures with systolic (top) of less than 130 and bottom less than 80 (diastolic) is considered acceptable. Some recommend 110 over70 as ideal.See 1 more doctor answer
