My blood pressure went through the roof both times I had GBS. I had to be put on medication. I took adrenal extract and it brought it down…but I had to take alot since it is difficult for the body to absorb/use it. When I asked the pharmacist the safe way to get off of it, she said that NO ONE ever gets off of it. Sheeesh. So I called 2 different pharmacists in FLorida and they told me the correct way to wean off of it. Always get several opinions. I wish you well on your journey through GBS. I did not get IVIG either time with GBS.
