High Blood Pressure + Parkinsons Meds


#1

Hi

Anyone got high blood pressure and take medication for Parkinson’s?

I’ve been on meds for high BP for years, but not on any Parkinson’s meds at the moment but wondering if they help with blood pressure. I know Parkinson’s can affect the involuntary systems such as blood pressure. My BP has been slowly rising and I’m reluctant to add more meds.

Hi ANNE29 - What a coincidence me too. I’ve always had high blood pressure then when I started on Parkinsons meds my BP lowered, amazing or what
