    It really varies from person to person as no two persons are alike. Some people when they first start taking medicine, it takes a few days to a few weeks to get it down to the level that the doctor wants. Sometimes, this medicine is not the right one for that person and the doctor has to add another or change the medication. Usually the doctor will have the patient return in several weeks to a month to check on the effectiveness of the medicine. In the meantime, it wouldn't hurt to purchase a blood pressure machine, make a record of your readings and take them to your doctor on your next visit. Ask your doctor as to which type of machine he prefers. Usually the wrist ones are sometimes not accurate, but the self inflate ones are and so are the ones that you inflate yourself. Your doctor can check the machine in his office to determine if the machine is accurate also.

    You should read "The Blood Pressure Solution" (also available in electronic format, watch the video presentation here: http://www.fixbloodpressure.com/ ) It's a very comprehensive step-by-step book that walks you through the natural remedies of high blood pressure. It provides you with a lot of information on what foods to eat, how you can acquire and prepare these foods, how you can change your lifestyle for the better, how to eliminate the toxins from your body, how to reduce stress, how you can check your blood pressure level the correct way etc.

    The book is amazing in that it not only lowers your blood pressure without the help of medications; it also aids you in having a life that is healthy, happier, and less stressful. This book chanced my life.
