    High Blood Pressure
    I'm a senior citizen, was told in the past month I have High Blood pressure my medication
    Lisinopril 20mg 2 daily
    Toprol XL 50mg 1 daily


    ?

    My pulse rate has come down quite a bit, my Blood pressure has come down a little
    In my limited knowledge, I thought when the heart didn't pump as hard creating a fast pulse rate, my blood pressure would come down more than it has.

    I've been taking medication for a month. About how long will it take to bring blood pressure down to a reasonable level.

    Thanks for you reply.

    Add some mild exercise--walk 4-8 blocks twice a day or ride an exercise bike for 15 minutes. etc. Watch your sugar and fat intake, and eat lots of fruits and vegetables.

    Give it another month.
