Are Hypertension Drugs Still Being Consumed When Blood Pressure Is Normal?
Hello, I want to ask, for example, a person initially has hypertension until he takes hypertension medication then because the blood vessels in the heart are blocked, a ring is placed, now the tension is often 100/70 so the hypertension drug is still being consumed, or stop? If you stop, in what condition should you take hypertension medication? thanks.
Hello, thank you for the question
Hypertension requires long-term treatment, especially if there are other debilitating diseases, one of which is heart blockage which is often associated with hypertension.
Types and doses of hypertension drugs require adjustment to the patient's blood pressure response and other debilitating diseases. The dose is increased or other drugs can be added if the response to decrease blood pressure has not been targeted. Conversely, the dose is reduced to the optimal dose when the target blood pressure has been reached.
Dosage adjustments or drug discontinuation should still be based on the doctor's recommendation. Perform regular control on chronic diseases such as hypertension to evaluate your hypertension treatment response at least 2 weeks to 1 month.
In addition to routine treatment, pay attention to optimal nutrition and limit salt consumption to at least 1 teaspoon per day, do aerobic exercise regularly for 30 minutes 5 days a week.
So hopefully that can help
