I’m going to start recording my blood pressure readings here on my blog for those of you in my family who are interested. I only take it in the mornings because it is the calmest part of my day. The afternoons are hectic with the kids and I am usually trying to rush around and get ready for bed by 9:30 pm. If I took my blood pressure at those times, I don’t think it would be accurate.
I started taking a beta blocker medication for the high blood pressure and for my atrial fibrillation. I am taking 50 mg of a medication called Toprol. One pill every morning. I started taking it on the afternoon of 7/19/06.
My blood pressure for today is 128/88.
