I have Hypertension, and my doctor wanted to try something different. He eliminated the Lisinopril for now and added the Metoprilol half of 25meg twice a day and the HCTZ water pill. My blood pressure is reading around the range of 138/84. It used to be 116/62. I sometimes feel my heart racing; when i take my blood pressure, my pulse is high. What is the average blood pressure; I am confused. I remember when it used to be 129/79 as normal. I hate to try so many different types of medications, but it is important to get it right. Lisinopril makes my blood pressure drop especially in the sun. Plus, i have been experiencing shortness of breath, which could be environmental because i don't have asthma.
