    How Long To Get The Meds Right?

    Just got out of the hospital. My 'borderline' high blood pressure has crossed the line in a big way. Spent 3 days in the hospital, no signs of heart damage. I still don't feel 'right.' How long did it take you to get used to the meds?

    I bought one of those wrist cuff monitors, it was on sale. Anyone have opinions/advice on home monitors? They all swear they are accurate. I went for the wrist as I am tired of the soreness of the arm monitor, but I suspect the upper arm is still the best place to get a good BP?

    I have high blood pressure.

    I went off my mess because it made me sick after a year. I'm thin and exercise daily. I don't eat salt and I drink a lot of water. I even stopped drinking coffee. Nothing helps. After not using salt, my blood sodium level was low and I was always tired. Drives me crazy!!
