Buying a good high blood pressure medicine is not easy. The pharmacist in the pharmacy will rarely help, he immediately sends to the doctor.
Few people in our time have not heard anything about hypertension, or high blood pressure. This is not surprising - after all, in the modern world, every third adult faces this problem and is forced to look for ways to solve it.
Blood pressure is considered elevated if its value is 140/90 mm Hg. Art. or higher, regardless of the person's age. Most often, an increase in pressure is an independent disease, which is called hypertension. But sometimes hypertension is a symptom of some other disease (for example, kidney, thyroid, adrenal gland diseases). In this case, in addition to reducing the numbers, it is necessary to treat the underlying disease.
An increase in pressure can be indicated by symptoms such as:
"Flies" before the eyes;
discomfort in the region of the heart.
When any of them appears, it is worth measuring your blood pressure. If it is above the norm, you need to take care of its reduction.
The higher the pressure, the greater the risk of developing them.
Medications for lowering blood pressure are needed by almost all patients with hypertension. At the initial stage of the disease, with a slight increase in pressure, sometimes it is possible to bring the indicators back to normal by changing the lifestyle (diet, weight loss, stress management, physical activity). But most patients still need constant medication. If treatment is stopped, then high blood pressure, and with it unpleasant symptoms, the risk of complications return. During treatment, it is very important to control the level of pressure and keep a diary by the patient, in which his indicators are recorded. This allows you to select the optimal treatment, accurately assess its effect.
