Blood Pressure

December 5, 2014

As a pharmacist, I have filled thousands of prescriptions for people who suffer from hypertension (high blood pressure). Often, patients are initially prescribed one medication to help control their blood pressure, but over time the doctor adds more medications. Some patients end up taking three or four daily medications.

 

In many cases additional therapies, such as exercise or modifying one’s diet, can be utilized to help control blood pressure and sometimes give the added benefit of reducing the amount of medications the patient is required to take.

 

The National Institutes of Health (NIH), American Medical Association (AMA) and the US Surgeon General recommend exercise for the relaxation of blood vessels which can help to reduce hypertension.
