Hello There. I can understand your concern. sometimes, the Blood pressure is so resistant that one or two drugs do not do much to reduce the blood pressure. we need to examine her and get her blood tests like RFT, Serum electrolytes, CBC, ECG done and consult a MD consultant physician in person for further revaluation and management. Best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain.

Sometimes patients do require 3-4 different meds to control BP. Please get her Heart and Kidney function done to make sure her body is coping well.
