    I don’t know of any OTC medications to lower blood pressure, but you may want to go to an herbalist. My great-grand mother used hawthorn, and linden blossoms. The UK has a lot of herbalist sites you can check on. And I read somewhere that Ginko Biloba helps also. Physical exercise (like walking) and relaxation techniques help me. Chinese herbalists are superb. When my uncle’s doctors told him to go home and die, he didn’t and went to a Chinese herbalist and acupuncturist and lived almost another 35 years! Cardiology has come a long way since then (it was the mid 60′s, just when Michael DeBakey was doing his heart transplant thing), but I suspect the old ways are still just as good. Check the sites for Dr. Dean Ornish. He’s the guy that pioneered the reversal of heart disease trend.
    But you do need to see a Doctor, do you qualify for a free screening, or free clinic? Do a web search for free cardiovascular screening or free blood pressure screening. Good luck and blessings.

    I don’t know of an over the counter med. I to have high bp. My doctor suggested I eat a banana daily plus take a garlic pill. He gave me a pill to control my pressure and I get it for $4.00 at Walmart. The generic name is HYDROCHLOROT. hope this helps.

    I don’t know of any over the counter blood pressure medication. You will have to consult your doctor. Where I live the health department gives you medication for blood pressure. It’s based on your icome. Try calling the health department where you live.
    Best of luck.

    There is no non-prescription medication that’s useful as an antihypertensive. Even the powerful prescription drugs may only drop the blood pressure a few points. Giving elderly people anything is always risky, and best done with medical supervision.

    there is no over the counter med for high blood pressure. high central pressure can lead to much further complications. treat it promptly.

    Go to the Doctor, explain your situation, and ask if you can be prescribed one of the $4.00 medications at Wal-Mart.

    No over the counter meds. you should talk to a doctor and start with a diuretic like Hydroclorothiazide. If it still doesn’t go down enough ask about a combination drug.

    There are several prescription anti-hypertensives that are very effective and inexpensive. Probably the most effective and inexpensive is hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ). It would cost about 4 dollars at Walmart for a month supply–and is much more effective (and safe) than any over the counter medicine you could get at a natural food store–and also probably a lot cheaper than anything there as well. If the cost worry is the physician visit, try to find an indigent care clinic nearby, or the neighborhood health center should be able to help.
