Re: No-No foods No meds, Wrist BP

Posted by Tony P on February 1, 2008, at 15:15:06

Thank heaven for my calm GP who persuaded me to throw out my wrist BP monitor and presented me, gratis, with a basic but reliable arm cuff unit! If anyone out there is using a wrist BP unit I strongly suggest calibrating it against your GP or pdocs office measurement, as my GP says his experience with wrist units is generally bad.

Now instead of scary BP's all over the map from 180/95 to 205/110 I have a realistic picture that agrees with wht he sees in the office, around 140/80. So my moderate regime of combining Remeron, Requip and low-dose Selegeline (MAOI-B) 10 mg/day starts to look reasonable again, and I can eat blue cheese & olives without fear of reprisals.

I still have to avoid a few OTC meds, Sudafed & (somewhat to my surprise) Dextromethorphan.

I'm not doing particularly well at the moment -- mixed anxiety/depression keeps me housebound a lot of the time -- and I'm between pdocs, but the Selegeline helps so I'm happy not to have to give it up.
