Anyone have tips to reduce high blood pressure especially upon awakening in the morning? I have been on several different types of BP meds and they all have side effects. I am on an ace inhibitor now, but it does not keep the BP down. I have also tried several natural remedies with very little improvement. Any tips out there? Thanks.

I use vinegar.1 teaspoon in cup of water twice a week for high blood. Take a mouth full several times on these days.
Possible Benefits from Apple Cider Vinegar:
*Support normal blood pressure
*Promote proper digestion
*Supports gall bladder
*Support proper bone growth
*Maintain healthy skin
*Soothes sunburn, shingles and bites
*Topically helps prevent dandruff, baldness and itching scalp
Garlic will help high blood pressure.
Yes, they all have different side affects from feeling tired to a troublesome cough. I've been reading about breathing exercises in a quest myself. According to a recent study a person is able to lower their BP by using relaxation breathing methods like yoga. I googled "breathing" + "blood pressure" and have found quiet a bit suggesting that the key to the difference in people with and without high blood pressure is in how we breath.
Try beetroot juice. It is sold in wine-sized bottles over here and, apparently, very beneficial for many things, including lowering blood pressure.
Fish oil also helps to lower blood pressure and also other things such as lowering cholesterol, helps arthritis and is calming. Omega 3 fatty acid is what you'd want.
Walk, Walk, Walk. Heard that garlic can lower blood pressure; haven't tried it. My BP has been borderline a few times and when I walked and switched to decalf coffee it went down.
My husband has been eating porridge (oats) for breakfast a few times a week, and on the days that he does this his bp is down. Worth trying.
High blood pressure can actually be caused by a spinal misalignment in the C1 vertebre ( this is the top vertebre, right under the skull). Other symptoms of this can include headaches, insomnia, dizziness, migraines, memory loss, depression/anxiety, panic/anxiety attacks, and memory loss. You may get one or all of these. I recommend seeing a chiropractor and getting it checked. It can't hurt to find out more, and you may be able to control it without drugs.
