Well I visited the nurse today at my GP as had high blood pressure at home after a random home check.
My BP was through the roof at the GPs was taken twice first time was 191/128 second was 179/116 (Just checked it now down to 154/101) she told the doctor and she seems to think it's down to the co-beneldopa, set up a 24 holster BP check, bloods check and urine test in 2 weeks time, she also advised me to get my eyes tested as they can see if they is a bleed behind them (which I got a cancellation today at the opticians and all is fine with my sight/eyes thankfully).
She has put me on Losartan 50mg 1 tab per day to start immediately which I have.
I know Hypotension (Low blood pressure) can be affected with PD but can High BP? as I can't find anything about it ( http://www.parkinsons.ie/userfiles/file/LeafletNM3.pdf explains LBP) Or has anyone else had the same issue with co-beneldopa raising there BP as my GP thinks is happening?
I never rains but pours!
