Could I die if I stop taking my high blood pressure medication for 1 month?

I ran out of medication and won't be able to see a doctor for a month due to changes to health insurance.

My blood pressure if I skip a day is 175/115. Can I make it to a month?

    Blood pressure that high is not good. Most likely you won't, but you should ask your

    doctor to call it into the pharmacy for you.

    You could die even taking your medications, Call your Doctors Office explain WHO you are and that YOU need your Prescription filled asap, because yOur out, Explain your next appointment is posponed due to the Insurance issue.... its quite simple really... and Its too late to change your Blood pressure by drinking tap water.... IT could take you 4 or 5 years to change the 20 years of NOT doing it right ......

    Start drinking more water and give up the water substitutes. High blood pressure is a condition associated with chronic dehydration.

    You don't have to believe me (most don't) - just try it. You've got nothing to lose but the high blood pressure, and since the body needs water anyway, it won't hurt nor create any side effects.

    That is much too high. Pay for the medication.

    Don't chance it. Call your current doctor and ask to have a new prescription.
