I have often had the same question---when my BP is high as it was this morning (134/94), I have the urge to take it all the time, but I try to wait an hour or so. When it's not high, (for me anyway, when it's like 130/84), I take it usually only once or twice a day. That is what my dr. said to do, but I wonder if it's often enough.
On a related note, I was wondering what you all had been told about what is too high---when are you supposed to call your dr? Last time they told me if the bottom number gets over 100. From reading posts here, it sounds like that is higher than most of you consider too high, and I am nervous about that! The last week I've often had readings in the 90s on the bottom. I am on Labetorol 100MG twice a day.
I haven't seen Runaway Bride but I guess I will avoid it if it's enough to raise your pulse like that, Catherine!
