My primary dr put me on

Hydrochlorothiazide for high BP. It was 171/115 in the office today. They took it 3 times. I have to track my BP the next two days and report my number to her to determine if I need a higher dose than she started me on.

I started taking coconut oil am/pm for stress and some other things. The stuff actually works. Last month at the pdoc my BP was 147/111 last week it was 127/88. Might be worth a shot.

I take that. It is just for flushing excess fluid out. I think that lowers lood pressure. I retain water. 25mg unless really swollen then i double up

My Mom takes that med for her high bp @ZmaGal.
It’s a good med.
