I can always feel myself getting tire all the time, that is when I know I need to take some Iron Pills. I think that runs in My family. My husband has High Blood Pressure and has to take pills.

My blood pressure is neither high nor low. It is in about the average range. So I don't take any type of medication, though I do take vitamins; multi- vitamin D, C, Fish Oil, and garlic. One thing I noticed that when I started taking the garlic about a week ago, my hot flashes and night sweats have subsided. Though on the bottle it states for cholestrol lowering. But hey, I will take the results that I am getting with the garlic any day over the hot flashes and night sweats!

I have a little above normal blood pressure. I was high once, but the nurse said it was because I was worried at the time. My husband has to take iron bills but that is because he is a blood donor, rare blood type.

I used to have high blood pressure. I used to take 3 pills daily for it. When I had gastric bypass surgery my blood pressure dropped down to normal. Mine registers low sometimes. My mom has low blood pressure. Both, high and low runs in our family.

My blood pressure seems to be just right according to the doctor.

I do not have hypertension or hypotension, but I am anemic. I have to take iron pills three times a day. My doctor also has me taking Folic Acid. A lot of people who are anemic do not know it and there are some who know it, but do not take their iron. My sister is one of them. I am always reminding her, but she has not started taking them yet.

I can't say for sure that it is good for that, but I know that for myself it has helped with it. What it states on the bottle is for cholesterol, which most people need to lower anyway. So hopefully if you try it you will get the same results that I have for hot flashes.

hello marciascott, OMG i don't know if its high or low with me.LOL.i mean i haven't measured it or you can say never felt the urge to.its your question that is making me think that i should go for it.and you know the most funny part is my parents are doctors,so i won't have to go anywhere.but see what a fool i am i don't know about my blood pressure level. but i think i am healthy and its normal.otherwise i would have experienced certain symptoms associated with them.but anyways i am gonna check it out.and i wish it to be this way always.i don't want it to be either high or low.i like it being normal.moreover who likes to take pills daily.LOL.

I think my blood pressure is normal but it'll be a little bit lower sometimes. Even if when I was pregnant, my blood pressure was almost the same.
