The Safe Distance Of Consuming Drugs Between Anti-hypertensive Drugs And Anti-pain Medications?
Is it permissible after taking a few hours to take high blood pressure medication, we may take painkillers or aches like paracetamol, ibuprofen, or some other kind?
Good morning, thanks for the question. I'm dr. Nova will help answer your questions.
Hypertension is a condition where systolic blood pressure is more than 130 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure is more than 80 mmHg. Please note, there are a lot of drugs used to lower blood pressure, but the class of drugs that are often used as initial therapy for high blood pressure (hypertension) include:
Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Inhibitors (ACE-inhibitors)
Angiotensin II Receptor Antagonists (Angiotensin Receptor Blockers, ARBs)
In general, pain relievers and over-the-counter pain relievers on the market, such as paracetamol, do not cause dangerous interactions with other drugs, but for other pain relievers the use should be prescribed by a doctor, especially if it will be combined with other drugs. High blood pressure medication should also be used on a doctor's prescription because it can cause dangerous side effects, such as blood pressure dropping too fast, shock, so there can be a decrease in consciousness. Because high blood pressure drugs have many types, it should be mentioned more specifically what type of blood pressure medication is meant so that doctors can prescribe other drugs that are safer and do not cause dangerous interactions between the two.
Things that can be done by people with high blood pressure include:
Reduce salty foods or contain excessive salt
Eat nutritious foods, vegetables and fruit, reduce fatty foods
Sufficient fluid needs
Avoid cigarettes and alcohol
If the blood pressure is too high or the pain is felt to be heavy, you should consult with a cardiologist.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
