Customer Question

I am type 2 diabetic and overweight. I have been asked by practice nurse to monitor my BP over the next few days from yesterday. So far my readings have been around 180/85. Tonight it topped at 210/92. Can I wait 'til Monday to see Dr or do I need to do anything before then.

Good evening:

How long ago did you start taking the lisopril again?

Do you have any symptoms other than the elevated blood pressure?
