Quick Overview

Download these eight pages on the pros and cons of the various medicines used to lower blood pressure. Details on non-drug approaches to blood pressure control such as diet, supplements and special foods.

Product Description

One in three American adults has high blood pressure, and getting it under control is crucial for preventing strokes, kidney disease and heart attacks.  Because hypertension (high blood pressure) has no symptoms, it is often called the “silent killer.” Hypertension is usually treated with medications, but finding the right drug or combination of drugs can involve trial and error.

Every medication has side effects, but they don’t affect everyone equally. The 8-page guide offers information on the pros and cons of each type of medicine along with details on non-drug approaches to lowering blood pressure with diet, supplements and special foods such as chocolate, pomegranates and beets. The guide is downloadable only.

    I was on lisinopril and I had terrible large hives right after I started taking it, I had no Idea this medication would create this issue, I didn’t think a dr would give me a medication that would have this side effect, I thought the welted hives was an allergic reaction to a food I ate, never had hives before this, then I was in the Wisconsin back woods and my throat swelled closed and I couldn’t breath or talk but luckily a small opening opened in my throat and I could get a little air in but couldn’t talk for awhile till the swelling went down. I thought my throat swelling was due to tonsil issues,, nope it was the lisinopril then the dr put me on amlodipine and the same swelling happened, it was awful. Now the dr wants me to take hydralazine and I’m afraid to take it but when my blood pressure goes to 160/80 I take one but it make my pulse race and I feel like my heart is racing more. I’m not what the dr will do when I see him next time but I am afraid not to take the medication and afraid to take it. This review gave me a lot of answers to my questions, very helpful

  2. Very Informative and helpful

    Thank you for your report on Blood Pressure Treatments. It was very informative, very helpful. My husband is on metoprolol, amlodipine, and lisinopril with HCTZ and his blood pressure is super high to super low several times a day. He lost a kidney to calcified renal artery and is so afraid the same thing will happen to his remaining kidney. We don’t know which way to turn. With your helpful report we can at least understand what each of these medications actually do so we can discuss this stuff with his doctor with a better understanding now. Also the side effects info. We read this and said “who knew” because he has been having some of these very symptoms (side effects?) Thanks again

    Very informative, and I now realize that my doctors are killing me. I fell the other day, and now I can’t stop bleeding. I am diabetic. I now have a huge black eye (face, really), and I cut my leg and can’t stop bleeding.
