Hypertension improvement report
Hello, everyone. I 've been experiencing a GREAT improvement in my hypertensioni and decided it calls for a report here.
For a background info: I've been having high BP for about 10 years. It started around the same time with my hypothyrodism symptoms. I've been taking antihypertensives on a daily basis for the past 5 years. Last fall, prior to starting CAPi in Jan'08 my BP went out hand and even on medications it was often 160/100.
I've been on Cap since begining of Jan'08. On my current protocol (Rifampin 600mg /day + Doxyi 100 mg x 2/day) since March. At first my BP was spiking a lot. Hypertension crises always were a part of my die-off reactions. My BP became more stable as I was improving in general with arthritis, fatigue, pains.
Well, in the beginning of July one morning I felt very weak and dizzy after taking my normal morning dose of enalapril. I check BP and it was 104/65 which was a bit on a low side for me. So I thought enalapril must have been cumulated in my body and I took a break from it for a couple of days. I monitored BP and re-started enalapril slowly according to BP numbers. However, a couple of weeks later I still needed only may be 1/3 of my old dose.
It gets even better. Within past couple of weeks my BP improved even more and for last 10 days I am taking BP meds only once every other day and even lesser dose, just a 1/2 of starting dose (2.5 mg).
I don't know if this improvements in BP have anything to do with my CAP treatment but I am certainly hopefull that it have. It would be wonderful not to be on antihypertensives as a daily regiment.
