In brief: Hypertension at 18?

Your main problem is not with your calcium and potassium, it is your having hypertension (h) at 18.
How long ago did you start your bpmeds? Did the physician consider a secondary cause for your h, such as a renal artery stenosis or conn's syndrome? I suggest you go to your physician (p) and ask the p to consider other causes for your h. It one is found, and treated, you may not need hbp meds.
