Hello- I'm closing my first period of Sutent tomorrow. My blood pressure has continued to rise since I have began using Sutent. The physician had doubled my blood pressure medicine however it continues to be runnung about 140/100. I'm hoping that my body will adapt to the Sutent and I'll have the ability to keep my blood pressure under control.

My husband is on blood pressure meds and this only started when he was these meds.  His doc is watching is closely.  It is one of the side effects.  His was very high at times 165/103 and there abouts up and down.  He is doing okay now.  Mary aka Mazzy
