I started my hormonal therapy about three weeks ago with a zoladex implant and casodex once daily. I am currently being treated for moderately high blood pressure which seemed well under control. However, within the past week, my blood pressure elevated to high stage one (Plus 140/90) and sometimes a little higher. It goes down as low a 116/66 in the evening but bounces right back up. I am wondering if perhaps the therapy itself is causing this or, more logically, the stress. I would appreciate hearing from anyone else experiencing this problem. I researched the net but could not find any references to this issue. Thanks.
