Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Not usually these supplements cause highblood pressure.
But sometimes your body may not be tolerating these supplements.
Hence, stopping them will not do any harm.
And your blood pressure first need to be controlled well.
I do not see any diuretic in your pills.
A diuretic like chlorthalidone should be added which helps to bring down blood pressure faster.
Please discuss with your GP also.
Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
