Blood pressure not controlled by med.
kjme11374 posted:
Used to live in NYC. BP was more or less controlled with some spikes. Moved to Arizona, first week BP was more or less ok...but the past few days BP is going wonky. I even went to an Urgent care center on Wed (Today is Friday). They doubled my metoprolol to 50 mg and I also take Losartan potassium. But it isnt working. I could get appt with Dr til November 21, but I'm going back to the Urgent Care center tonight. I HAVE been under a lot of stress for the past few days, more so than usual.

Could the stress be causing the BP NOT to be controlled? I dont want to end up in the emergency room.

The good thing is that the bottom number is pretty good, and my heart rate has (strangely) been more relatively normal except one spike to 83.
