    I've been reading past messages re: OLE and I'm confused about one thing. Many have mentioned not taking it with bp meds, but Plantscaper says it lowered her (his?) bp. Was the bp med. stopped before taking the OLE?

    Bp med shouldn't be stopped, but I forget to take mine (and everything else) so often, I don't think it would matter.

    Apparently, it can potentiate the effects of BP meds, but if you took your BP while on it, you could lower your BP meds accordingly..(since it enhances the effects of the meds)

    ..I had BP of l50/90, but when off it, because it was not effectively addressing the problem, anyways, and I had side effects from Verapamil..I really did not expect for it to work, that effectively, but it did reduce it to ll0/72, which was measured at my last physician's visit..

    Hope it helps you,
