  1. How do you test an ELB checker? You push the button while running hot water? Any precautions to take? I have a National water heater with a push button in front of it to test and it says push up to reset. I do not see any ground wire, simply 2 wires electrical supply.
  2. Where is the Indian woman shop selling white cotton bed sheets near Villa Sukhumvit? The shop was once next to Villa Market on Sukhumvit Soi 33 but it has moved somewhere else.

    To tip or not to tip?

    Tipping in Thailand is a waste, now most of the time , even after they levy a service charge they are expecting a minimum 100 THB. Yesterday I had one small beer in a bar and the waitress make an unhappy face when I asked for some change on all the 100 THB bills change she first handed to me in order to give 50 THB on the 180 THB beer. If they are going to play unhappy all the time then let's give a justification for them to be unhappy. Now I only give a tip when a smile is apparent on paying the bill.
  4. Maybe you should ask them, are you shy? How anybody else would know?
  5. Everybody with decency should care.

    Any one still using a Windows mobile phone

    I have a 6 years old Nokia Windows 720 and I love it for ease of use. Android is too complicated and it looks like that if you install an antivirus on an Android phone, it received more advertisement and unsolicited offers.. The battery has a long life and it updates automatically. As you say, it is now not available in the market.
  7. Stability? Better opportunities elsewhere...
  8. Why have you kept your money in CAD? The trend has been going down for more than 10 years already, enough time for you to react, the bottom is not far I suppose, the CAD is at a 10 years low against the THB:

    Best hypertension medecine?

    You are right and I will follow your advise. It is time for a full checkup and another stress test, the last one was in 2004... As you say better safe than sorry!

    Best hypertension medecine?

    Sheryl, The reason I am using Prenolol is because, as you guessed well, I was prescribed 50Mg Tenormin 25 years ago when it was discovered that I had some hypertension. In any case you have helped me a lot as always. This year I had 5 eyes surgeries (mostly IOL anterior and posterior related) under general anesthesia, all preceded by an electrocardiogram and continuous pressure monitoring during the surgery and nothing was said about my medication. I am only 67 and about 17 kilo overweight. I was not running because I was told by my eye surgeon not to run but now the last surgeon has allowed me to run which I will do starting tomorrow as Lumpini park is very near. I measured my pression daily and make the adjustment when necessary. However on each monthly hospital visits, it looks like that the systolic is then 145 to 155 mm Hg. When I mentioned to my eye doctor about the advisable medication for hypertension, I was told to go and see a general doctor as they do not do those kind of things... You guess the rest. Thank you for all, you are of great help in this forum. 9663 advises is quite a lot and we surely need you.

    Best hypertension medecine?

    Why with 1 tab Amlodipine10 or even 1 tab Enaril 20 (Enalapril) or a combination of both in half (in trial mode), my heart rate is always increasing to 80bpm and even 92bpm while simply working on my computer... Of course I am also watching MSNBC American politics saga... It could also be due to lack of sleep. This morning I had 112/67 and 93bpm, at noon 133/79 and 77bpm, this evening 136/82 and 87bpm.

    I am now taking Amlopine 10 Mg then the pressure decreases but to only 150, not enough, while the heart beat is going up to 80 bpm hence the Prenolol to reduce the heart beat to normal. At home I usually get 130/80 while on each hospital visits to my ophthalmologist it shows higher 155/90. What would be your safe suggestion to combine with Amlopine 10Mg in order to get the difficult inaccessible 120/80?

    Best hypertension medecine?

    Maybe you are right but on low dose. I was once prescribed some Losartan but the pressure was going up instead of down and Calcium Channel blocker simply gives me headaches even at very low dose. I am asking to see what is the most reducing anti hypertension prescribed medicine on this forum.
  14. In your opinion what is the best medicine to lower hypertension? Then I will discuss with my doctor about this after you suggest some anti hypertension regimen. I am now taking Prenolol 100Mg and Amlopine10Mg daily but my pressure simply stabilize at 145-150 each time, never to 120/80.
