I am a known hypertension patient managing it with Amlong H 5 mg (taken in the morning). As I was not able to manage the BP, an additional Amlong 2.5 mg to be taken at night was prescribed. I was able to manage my BP within the limits of 120/80. Recently I has an incident where I slipped on a wet floor while pushing a cot. The upper side of the cot hit my chin and the neck portion. It has damaged my voice card. I could speak with difficulty. Breathing became difficult. BP jumped to 200/110. I was admitted in St. Johns hospital for three days and administered Wysolone (steroid, Mox clav 625, Pan 40 mg, PCT 650 mg + Amlong H 5 mg to manage the situation. My sugar level went up which was treated by insulin injection. After discharge the tablets were continued including Wysolone which was tapered off. Three days after my BP again shot to 200/100. Medication changed to Telma CT (40/6.25 mg)Nebicard-5 (morning dose, Amlong 5 mg and Ecosprin 75 mg in the night. The dose was further increased to Telma CT 80/12.5 and decreased to Telma CT 80/12. 5Nebicard-5 deleted. Finally, the present dosage is Telma CT 80/12.5 mg in the morning and Amlong 5 mg with Ecosprin AV 75 in the evening. Managed for two days the higher recorded BP being 156/91. Now there is a decreasing trend of BP the present level being 116/77. My question to you Dr. Sir is what is minimum threshold llumit of BP where we have to approach the Physician for a revisit of the dosage. Regards and thanks in anticipation. V Gangathimmaiah

Measure BP once every month on fixed date after resting for ten minutes. Avoid measuring BP on impulse or when unwell. Keep BP below 140. Best wishes.

At least weekly visits to the doctor till BP is settled.
