This is very interesting re what might work best. I must go back and look at my records to see what they gave me in the hospital in the 80's when I had a hypertensive crisis from an overdose of contac cold time released capsules. I felt like my whole head was going to explode. I know they made me vomit and then a lot I don't remember except that they put me in the cardiac intensive care unit. I think I screwed up a valve in my heart.

So now I am on Parnate again, and it works for me, and I am careful about what I eat, etc. But my pdoc/therapist has never prescribed anything for me to deal with an accidental hypertensive crisis. I think I will ask him about it tomorrow. Worst headache I ever had. I guess nitroglycerin would have made my headache worse, but maybe they gave that to me.

I had to wear a nitro patch once when they thought I was having a heart attack that turned out to be GERD. I sure did get a headache from the patch which was put on my neck.

For someone who already has hypertension and takes Cozaar, I wonder what would be best--an extra Cozaar??? Any comments welcome, please.
