Blood pressure

My blood pressure is 151/46. If I take medication, it lowers the upper number and the bottom one. I then get dizzy and feel ill. No one, my doctor included can explain why the top number is so high and the bottom number is so low! Can anyone help me?

I don't know why this is. It sounds like you need to see a cardiologist. In the meantime you can check the WebMD Men's Health Community http://exchanges.webmd.com/mens-health-community Good luck. Rich
