Hi doctor,

I am 58 years old. I do not have any health problem except high BP. In spite of medicines my BP does not come down. First I tried Eslo 5 mg and Amlodac 5 mg and now I am on Cilaheart 10 mg. But, my BP remains at 140/100 mmHg. I do not smoke or drink. I eat less and avoid red meat and high protein. Please suggest a suitable medication. Thank you.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

We are here to help you.

  • Reading your case scenario, I would just recommend addition of diuretic like Hydrochlorothiazide to your existing regimen.
  • So, ask your doctor for a prescription and write back to me after two weeks with the attachment of BP chart that you would note down.

The Probable causes:

Primary hypertension.

Investigations to be done:

Get the following test done: Serum creatinine, fasting lipid profile, urine for microalbumin and ECG.

Treatment plan:

Adding up a diuretic and lifestyle modification.

Regarding follow up:

Revert back after two weeks to a cardiologist online.---> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/cardiologist
