Comment from: 55-64on Treatment for 1-6 months Published: July 18

My doctor was hesitant to try methyldopa since it requires me to take it every 6 hours. Before starting at 250mg, my blood pressure stubbornly refused to go below 150/90 regardless of what medication was tried. I went back 1 month after starting and my BP was 130/80. Dosage was increase to 500mg and a month later, my BP was a very respectable 115/62. I also take 100mg atenolol, 320mg diovan, and 80mg furosemide daily for blood pressure plus other medications for diabetes type 2, hyperthyroidism, and glaucoma.
