Harv Heart Lett. 2000 Nov;11(3):7-8.

Ask the doctor. My blood pressure is 180/80 mm Hg. My doctor tells me this a common problem for people in their 70s, like me. The problem is that whenever I try medicines at doses high enough to get my top number under 140 mm Hg (which I understand to be the goal), I get exhausted or have other side effects. Do I really need to worry about my blood pressure when the bottom number is so good?
