Delivered baby 2 weeks ago. Blood pressure is very high, especially when lying down. Taking Lebetalol and Procardia (nifedipine). Will my BP return to normal?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Maybe or maybe not

Sometimes pregnancy induced hypertension does not go away after the delivery as it was a early precursor to real essential hypertension which will require continued Rx.
