Dear Anon
A blood pressure that goes above 140 at the top and 90 at the bottom is too high and will do damage to the kidneys, brain and heart over the long term. Monitor it carefully and if the average for the week is higher than this you may need to go back on the medication. Try taking a teaspoon of honey too each morning if you are not diabetic?
