BP NOT GOING DOWN
I am new here, thank you for having me. My ICD implant was done 01/18/2019. In brief, I had a heart attack 12/26/17, remained on Brilinta and associated stomach, HBP meds. Echo revealed the 30 % and ICD implant was the route. Previous to the implant, I was at 12.5 MG of Metoprolol as the 25 was too high. My BP before the surgery was getting higher - Doc put me on 25 once a day. I had stability in my BP initially after the surgery but readings have been 165/117 and not going much lower than 100. I have been put on 50 MG of same med and it is not going down to the 86-90 distolic I had maintained. Communication with the DR is not so great and different staff members with confusion and guessing. I feel lost. Has anyone gone thorough this change, increase in BP, lack of communication with Provider? Any input, whatsoever, would be greatly appreciate.
