I'm having bp that goes from 210/95 and drops to 80/42, sometimes within an hour. I'm on Lotrel in the morning and 3 Clonondine at bedtime. Most of the day it is in the +180 range. A kindey MRA was clean. Do you hava any ideas? What kind of doctor best deals with blood pressure?

You should be under the care of a doctor. Internal medicine would be a good choice if you have one available. This kind of fluctuation should not be occurring and you should be able to manage it better.

hi, i think the best doctor for blood preasure problems is the cardiologist.
But if you can visit a blood presure specialist is the "best deal". good luck

Hi! If your blood pressure is always fluctuating probably the medications that you are taking needs to be adjusted or shifted to other antihypertensives. You better consult an internist or a cardiologist who can better assess your condition.
