Blood Pressure 155/10

I was diagnosed with Arrhythmia 4 years ago and the doctor prescribed following medicines:
Altace 5mg
Lipitor 10 mg
Novo-Metoprol  (75 mg two times a day)

My age is 62 years. Male

Due to some domestic circumstances, I discontinued these medicines a year ago.

I found recently that my blood pressure is around 155/110. Your advice.

Blood pressure greater than 140/90 meets the criteria for treatment of hypertension.  You need to see a doctor to have your prescriptions refilled.  If cost is an issue:
Metoprolol 50 or 100 mg po daily is $4/month at walmart
Lisinopril 40 mg (max dose) is also $4/month at walmart
Lisinopril / HCTZ (two blood pressure medications in one pill -- is also $4 /month at walmart.

You can buy generic simvastatin to replace the lipator or if cost is really an issue, provastatin is $4 per month at Walmart.  All the medications that are $4 per month are also $10 for a 3 month supply.

Aspirin, if still indicated, should be purchased as a generic and it is cheap.

I hope this helps.
