    The 122 sounds good but the 60 might be a little too low- maybe your doctor can lessen the meds just abit to get the bottom number up above 70- usually anything less than 60, you could get lightheaded while driving or pass out!!!! so talk to your MD right away- I have seen blood pressures like 400++/150!!!! which is a hypertensive crisis!! but the person actually walked into the ER with a persistent headache and nothing else with a blood pressure that high!! See a blood pressure could spike that high and cause a stroke, which is dangerous BUT it is just as dangerous to have moderately high blood pressure because that high pressure constantly could weaken the blood vessels in your head, eyes, and kidneys where the blood vessels are really fragile, and eventually that could lead to a stroke, blindness or kidney failure- so that is why blood pressure should be kept the highest around 130-140/80-90, anything higher could cause damage in the long run

    There are several things a person can do to lower blood pressure to a healthy level.

    First, regular exercise strengthens the heart and can lower blood pressure. Even a moderate walk has beneficial effects. Stop smoking immediately, as smoking will increase blood pressure tremendously

    The best way to lower blood pressure is with a heart-healthy diet. Eating foods low in saturated fats and high in fiber and other nutrients will lower blood pressure to a healthy level. Foods such as nuts, whole grains, lean meats and fresh fruits and vegetables should be incorporated into any daily diet. Certain foods contain an abundance of free-radical fighting antioxidants for optimal health.

    Taking a dietary supplement is an easy way to get these needed nutrients. Proleva is a supplement which, if taken daily, provides the body with the nutrients it needs to keep healthy and feel better. Proleva contains 500 percent more vitamin C and the antioxidants found in acai, pomegranate and green tea. It is rich in amino acids and omega-6. These nutrients are great for the immune system, overall health and for a healthier heart and lower blood pressure.

    Get outside and walk an easy going stroll everyday. Stay away from a lot of fat foods (saturated). Slow way down on drinking alcoholic beverages. Calm down is the biggest issue. If you are much over weight that can sky rocket your blood pressure. The walks will lower your stress and help calm you down. Eat your meals sensibly and in moderation. One step at a time to teach yourself to slow down everything. Think of what you are doing to make your blood pressure so high and simmer it all down to a comfortable level.

    you could:

    1.) inject magnesium sulfate

    2.) Eat non sweetened yogurt mixed with cinnamon

    3.) drink lemon juice

    4.) put your feet in hot water

    I'm not saying do this all at once, these are ways of lowering blood pressure. You could do it all at once. Oh and only a doctor is aloud to inject magnesium sulfate.

    Eating right. Taking medicine. Staying active. There are a lot of things you may be doing to lower your blood pressure and cholesterol. But how close are you to your goal numbers?

    There may be more you can do.

    A recent study compared two groups of patients with slightly elevated blood pressure and cholesterol. Both groups treated their conditions with diet and excercise. But one group also included Caduet in their treatment.

    If you want to go for both your goals, ask your doctor if Caduet can help. Caduet combines two proven medicines in one pill to significantly lower high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

    A single pill to help with both goals

    Pills not actual shape and size.

    Caduet is not for everyone. It is not for those with liver problems. And it is not for women who are nursing, are pregnant, or may become pregnant. If you take Caduet, tell your doctor if you feel any new muscle pain or weakness. This could be a sign of rare but serious muscle side effects. Tell your doctor about all of the medicines you take. This may help avoid serious drug interactions. Your doctor should do blood tests to check your liver function before and during treatment and may adjust your dose. If you have any heart problems, be sure to tell your doctor. The most common side effects are edema, headache, and dizziness. They tend to be mild and often go away.


    Caduet is a prescription drug that combines two medicines, Norvasc® (amlodipine besylate) and Lipitor® (atorvastatin calcium). Norvasc is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), chest pain (angina), or blocked arteries of the heart (coronary artery disease); Lipitor is used along with diet and exercise to lower high cholesterol. It is also used to lower the risk of heart attack and stroke in people with multiple risk factors for heart disease such as family history, high blood pressure, age, low HDL-C, or smoking.

    Lipitor is also used in patients with type 2 diabetes and at least one other risk factor for heart disease such as high blood pressure, smoking or complications of diabetes, including eye disease and protein in urine, to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.

    Caduet is one of many options for treating high blood pressure and high cholesterol, in addition to diet and exercise, that you and your doctor can consider.
