Off my meds

And no, I'm not non compliant.  I have an exercise stress echocardiogram and electrocardiogram on Thursday.  I'll get to sweat to the oldies and then see how my heart functions.  
For a good reading, UC Davis requires you to be off any beta blockers before the test. So, no coreg for me.  My blood pressure is already rising up from 105/75 to 145/80.  
Yes, I have  called my doctor to make sure I shouldn't take any other meds. 

So we might have more information on Thursday.  I'm hoping to see that my heart function doesn't decrease with exercise, that it maintains or goes up because of the higher heart rate and BP.  I'm also hoping to get back on these meds quickly.  I feel rotten today.
