Recently, I took the survey which, of course, made me think about my blood pressure and what I was doing for it. I had taken prescription meds only to have side effects that I could not live with (one gave me a terrible sense of doom, which is the only way I can describe it).
That being said, the survey did not have an OTC option. It merely asked if I was taking a prescription med (which as stated above, I am not). I have found that Black Cohosh has the wonderful side effect of lowering my blood pressure as does deep breathing and exercise. I say, 'side effect' because originally, I was taking this herb for my menopause symptoms. As I researched issues related to my female problems I found that Black Cohosh is effective in lowering BP!
