Medication for High Blood Pressure



Tonight at 10.00pm I started the infamous pill for my HIGH blood pressure, Dr. Krishnan took the reading and it was 163/93 and advised me to start taking medication if not I could be cheating my "sweet" heart. Two weeks back, a Dr. Ong has already advised me to do so (@ my annual medical check up) but I was trying again my luck to prolong it. The last 8 years I have been monitoring the situation (with this equipment, looks like it needs re-calibration) but my situation can not be improved as my life style has not change much to sustain the condition. Therefore I have no choice but to start the medication.
20 tablets of Tenormin (50mg) were given to me as prescribed by Dr. Krishnan and I will see him in the next 20 days.
I hope I will be alright with this Ternomin thing….

Hi Tai Lim,
Better listen to your doctor as high blood pressure affect all the vital organs like kidneys, heart etc.

Anyway, I enjoyed your audio - "Streets of London" and "Yesterday" etc are my all time favourites.

Enjoy looking at your food posts - well, eat, enjoy life and be happy is more important! May be cut down a bit on salt, do more exercise, but no need to be too worried lah.
Cheers!
