Hi all,

I have been taking some blood pressure tablets for 3 weeks but my BP is up and down like a yo yo still. It is very high in the afternoon and I have a headache with it. Could it be that the tablets need to be changed?
Does it sometimes take a while for BP tablets to work and does it take a while to find some that work?
Thank you.

talk to your doctor about changing the medication your taking to see how you respond with something else.
i stop taking my high blood pressure and my high cholesterol medication because of the side effects i had.
i m currently on omega3 fatty acids 1000mg a pill, and i take three a day. i got it from puritan pride when they had a buy one get two free sale.
check out their website. the omega 3's also cleared my skin up, and my menstrual cramps are very mild.
