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!
