Use Of Hypertension Drugs In A History Of Minor Stroke?
Asslm. Sorry, want to ask. Is it permissible to use a combination of miniaspi drugs with Amlodipine for hypertension sufferers with a history of mild stroke? thank you
Hi Rya AmaLya .. Thank you for the question given.
Stroke is a condition in which there is an obstacle to blood intake to the brain which can be caused by bleeding or due to blockage. Due to the absence of blood intake to the brain, the brain cells will be meti and of course disrupt the body's work because the brain is the center for regulating various functions in the body. If a stroke is caused by a blockage, to reduce the risk of blockage in the future, the doctor may suggest taking miniaspi (which contains acetylsalicylic acid). aspirin functions as an anti-clotting drug so that stroke patients are given in order to prevent blood clots that can block blood vessels in the brain. Apart from stroke patients, aspirin can also be used in patients with heart disease and chest pain.
Meanwhile, amlodipine is one of the anti-hypertensive drugs which is included in the calcium antagonist class. Amlodipine works by dilating blood vessels thereby improving blood flow to the heart and reducing blood vessel pressure. Aspirin and amlodipine can be used simultaneously provided there are no allergic reactions and other side effects. In addition, you still have to control the doctor to check the patient's condition. And do not add or reduce the dose of medicine without the advice of a doctor.
