Despite taking my blood pressure medication, my blood pressure continues to be very high in the morning. I am very active, and otherwise healthy, and wonder what I can do to control it better?
I am taking irbesartan/Hctz 300/12.5 and atenolol 25mg at noon. Two hours after rising my BP is 182/100 44. In the afternoon it is around 155/90. I had an echo stress test (HR 55 max) and Carotid echo which were all ok. I am very active (serious bicycling). I use CPAP for mild to moderate apnea (AHI =.5). What is causing this steep morning high BP and what can I do to control it?
