Comment from: spamlamb, 25-34 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: December 06

I started out with a bp of about 250/190. Yikes, right? Especially for someone my age, which is 30. I was prescribed Lopressor two weeks ago and today my pressure was 140/92. Not perfect yet, I know, but wow! Furthermore, I used to have serious headaches that I attributed to migraine but I haven't had the first one since I started this medication. I have to say, I'm really pleased with my results.

Influenza caused pericarditis & damaged my heart valve & left me with Mitral Valve Prolapse & PVCs in lower right ventricle. I couldnt even walk across a room, was so breathless. Irregular heartbeats were exhausting me & making me faint. This drug helped immensely & Ive taken it gratefully for 17 years now. Some generics dont work as well, some do. Mitral valve works much better now.
