    Ian – a fellow Scot and Parent Visa applicant sent me the following tip; 


    Mixing herbal remedies with prescribed Blood Pressure medication can have serious negative impact on reducing Blood Pressure.


    Ian says;   . I’ve agreed with the doc that I increase my dose of Candesartan now. It takes weeks to kick in. I was taking echinacea for an immune system boost before we go and it seemed to wipe out my BP therapy. I googled it and low and behold the Mayo Clinic confirmed that it does this. If anyone introduces herbal remedies, it would be wise to be very careful with other medication. That is always a good thing to warn clients about!

    My resting heart rate is 52. Doubt if there’s much wrong!


    This advice is something I’ve not heard of before. Thanks for sharing this Ian.


    NB – I say, “Fellow Scot” because I am half Scottish.  My Mother was born in Edinburgh and emigrated as an 18-year-old. Sadly, my Rugby talents never came even close to Scotland selecting me.
