Hi Mellwilliams and Welcome -

Sorry to hear about your battles with high blood pressure. Please be sure to talk with your doctor about other treatment options.

To spark some questions for your doctor and suggestions for controlling your blood pressure see this resource -

Do you mind sharing what your pressures have been?
