BP measurement
My BP is usually under 120/80 when i am lying down. When i sit up then its between 130/95 - 140/100. I am taking telma at the moment. I want to know that is BP lying down also the right measurement or when i am sitting up ? Do i need to alter my dose or increase it or shall i take my reading of lying down as BP is under control ?
