Have two stents in heart -- 1 in main artery to kidneys--1 in neck -- yeh I'm a wreak -- now I have Blood pressure spikes -- usually in early am -- wakes me up and I get very nervous etc-- go to emergency room at hospital and they do EKG, blood work, CT scan and send me home . Two days later same spikes except now I have two or three in 2-3 hours--- now I'm really a mess---then by night my BP is low .  Dr wants to double BP meds at night but with BP low, I don't think that would be good.  Any suggestions or comments?

Your primary physician/cardiologist would be the best person to discuss this with as this doctor would know you best given he or she has seen you more than once.  Taking a higher dose at night so that your AM blood pressure is better controlled sounds like a good idea, but it would depend on the type of medication.  You should continue to monitor your blood pressures and see how you feel with the new regimen your doctor has prescribed.  In a few weeks, let your doctor know how your pressures have responded and sooner if you have any significant drops in blood pressure or feelings of dizziness/lightheadedness.
