According to your charts,

Average Blood Pressure
For young people 120/80 mmHg
For old people 140/90 mmHg

I am taking a generic Amlodipine 5 mgs a day in the morning, and I think my bp is now more or less 135-80-75.

Should I take more Amlodipine or even more medicines to bring it down further, is that advisable?

I vomited shortly after taking my blood pressure medicine. Later that day, I asked a nurse at work to check my blood pressure. It was 210/120. Should I take my medicine again if I vomit? How do I know if I am taking too much? I couldnt tell if i threw up my medication or not.

I have been having problems with high blood pressure for a while now. My doctor put me on a low dose diuretic which has lowered it a few points. My issue is that the longer I sit the higher my blood pressure goes. Once I get up and moving around or lay down it seems to bring my blood pressure back down. I am a computer programmer and I sit all day writing code. Could I somehow be effecting renin excretion by sitting? Or something else? I also have sinus tachycardia my resting heart rate averages at about 110.

As an example I have been sitting for an hour now and my bp is 149/73
