TIPS FOR MANAGING

      YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE

 

We understand that lots of people may experience anxiety or stress when it comes to doctors, hospitals, and medical exams. With that, anticipating your appointment may elevate your blood pressure. Please know, we work with drivers all day and we understand how important it is for you to pass your DOT exam. To help prepare yourself for the appointment, there are a few things you can do in the days and weeks leading up to your exam:

  • Take your medication as prescribed and on schedule

  • If you forget a dose, refer to your doctor's recommendations

  • Tell our team if you’ve recently missed a dose so your pressure can be rechecked at a later time or the following day

  • Reduce your caffeine, nicotine, sugar, and salt consumption

  • Remember that you won’t actually find a single white coat in our clinic!
