TopicReducing High Blood Pressure When Saddled With a Faulty Human Character
Pre-hypertension is when your systolic blood pressure is between 120 and 139 BPS 5 or your diastolic blood pressure is between 80 and 89 on multiple readings. If you have pre-hypertension, you are more likely to develop high blood pressure. Your doctor may also tell you to exercise, lose weight, and follow a healthier diet. If you have pre-hypertension, your doctor will recommend the same lifestyle changes to bring your blood pressure down to a normal range.
Often, a single blood pressure drug may not be enough to control your blood pressure, and you may be told to take two or more drugs. It is very important that you take the medications prescribed to you. If you have side effects, your health care provider can substitute a different medication. (It's like chasing your tail--around and around we go.)
Some of the most commonly prescribed drugs include: Alpha blockers, Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, Angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs), Beta-blockers, Calcium channel blockers, Central alpha agonists and Diuretics. This is where I ended up. Just a short time ago I was taking an ACE inhibiter, beta blocker, diuretic and a statin (to control high cholesterol).
