Treating Hypertension

Treating Hypertension


Hypertension is often
the first medication that especially a male will take and the first question
I’m often asked is can I ever get
off this medication. The answer practically is
it’s rare that someone gets off of hypertension
medicine because hypertension like a lot
of diseases progresses as you get older so your
blood pressure naturally goes up as you
get older. I have seen people get off
of hypertension medications and that’s when
they lose weight stop smoking they exercise and sometimes that
that helps it sometimes someone quit a job
and they quit the job and that actually lowers the
blood pressure also. But those are rare instances so really for most people
you always have to take it. If you stop your medicine your blood pressure goes
back to where it was originally which is very dangerous stopping medicine and not
taking your medicine for example can
lead to strokes and heart attacks.
