Until When Do I Take Antihypertensive Medication?
, Until when do I take the drug Diltiazem and Amlodipine, is it completely cured?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically hypertension or high blood pressure is an incurable disease. You really will not feel any symptoms if your blood pressure does not increase very high in a fast time, but blood pressure is always high will slowly damage the blood vessels in your body and make your heart work so hard that it can have an impact on your heart in long-term.
Antihypertensive drugs given to people with hypertension (such as diltiazem or amlodipine) are not intended to cure hypertension but rather are aimed at controlling blood pressure to become normal. If you don't take your medicine, your blood pressure will rise again. You should always consult the use of hypertension medication with your doctor. Your doctor will always monitor whether the drugs given are enough to normalize your blood pressure, and monitor whether there are certain side effects that cannot be tolerated or the presence or absence of hypertensive complications that have occurred.
You should exercise routine control with your doctor and take your medication regularly as recommended by your doctor. Not controlling blood pressure properly will increase your risk of coronary heart disease and heart attacks, strokes, heart failure, heart rhythm disorders, kidney disorders, disorders of the eye, and so forth.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
