Elevated blood pressure due to stress.

Q: I was given medication to lower my blood pressure, which is not high at home readings are 120/80 or 109/78 but if I get too stressed out it may go to 120/90 most of all its low but my heart rate is high like 90 or sometimes 105 should I still take the high blood pressure medication?

A: You need to discuss stopping medication with your doctor. Be sure to ask your doctor about your heart rate. The same drugs that are used to lower blood pressure can also be used to treat an abnormal heart rhythm. Your level of stress is also of concern.
