thats a little high, should be 120/80 somewhere in there . 90 boarder line and the 146 to high . you need go dr have it checked out , dose not mean its always that it goes up and down so that could been a one time reading , take it if you can and see what the base line runs.

Way too high. Even if it's 140-120/80-90 your risk of heart attack is TRIPLED.

Whatever you do DO NOT LET YOUR DOCTOR PRESCRIBE CLONIDINE.

119 / 79 or below is normal. 146 / 90 is classified as stage I hypertension.

Your doctor will usually recommend lifestyle changes:

1. Maintain normal body weight mass (BMI 24.9 or less)
2. Adopt DASH eating plan
3. sodium restriction to no more than 2.4 g per day
4. Physical activity of 30 min.day most days of the week
5. Alcohol consumption of no more than two drinks per day

for a few months to see if your numbers can come down, then perhaps start you on a medication.

Has anyone Sucessfully gotten off of Clonidine? If so - How did you do it? What were the Withdrals Symptoms? And How Long did it take?

I am already on the DASH Diet - If I add an excercise regimine - Could I successfully be able to withaw from the Clonidine?

I have bad Kidney Disease from a drug one doctor gave me that damaged my Kidneys - so my Blood Pressure has been really high. That's when another doctor put me on Clonidine. But I don't want a high risk of a Heart Atack - So I want an Alternative to the Clonidine. And to get off it. ~ ASAP

*** IF Anyone has successfuly gottoen off of it - PLEASE LET  ME KNOW HOW YOU DID IT. Thank you. And God Bless you!
