Random High BP
I am 95 KG with 5 Feet 5 Inches height. My BP is at slidely higher side for last 6 years but last year it went upto 150/105 so doctor recommended Omlesartan 40 mg + Amlodipine 5 mg combination. After taking medicine, BP comes to normal and sometime goes below normal. After taking this medicines, my BP became normal and I stopped taking medicines. I kept on checking BP on regular intervals and it was almost normal. Last week, my BP shooted to 160/110 and I had to take medicine again and then BP remained normal for one week. I did not take medicine on daily basis. Can I take medicines on ad-hoc basis, only when it is high? Or shall I start taking medicine on regular basis. I want to avoid medicines, if I can. Just FYI, I regularly play sports to completely sweat out myself once in a day. I avoid salt and oily foods. No smoking and no family history. ECG, Echo, TMT Normal, Cholestrol on little higher side.
