Hi, my daughter inlaw is 10 weeks pregnant. Had a miscarriage last year at 12/13 weeks. She went to the doctor today and her blood pressure was high.. The doctor gave her hypotone 250mg, 1 tablet once daily.. Is it something to worry about, her gynaecologist appointment is only in 2 weeks' time. Do we need to try and get an earlier appointment?

It should not be necessary for an earlier appointment. Hypotone is safe in pregnancy and is the correct antihyperetensive to use.
