Do you find it effects the pump at all during workouts, negatively or otherwise? After about a year and a half of fighting it, I finally gave in to doctor's orders and started taking one.
I used to take a laundry list of supplements including some stimulants, so that along with genetics is probably what got it somewhat high. It has never been super-high, usually around 140ish over mid 80's at the highest, sometimes a little higher.
I am taking half a tab of Bennicar once a day. I guess it's not that much, but I do feel a little crappy from it, unless it's all in my head. Seems like my pumps aren't quite what they were, but that could be mental too.
Being that the pump usually means an increase in BP though, I wonder if meds could lessen the effect. That would suck. I really don't want to take this med, but obviously you can't leave high BP unchecked for a long time.
My doc is a weight lifter too, so I do trust him, although he is more of a powerlifter than bodybuilder. Any thoughts or experiences??
