Hypertension and You

Old Drugs, New Drugs, and the Right Drugs for your High Blood Pressure
Mann, Samuel J. (Book - 2012 )
Average Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5.
Hypertension and You

Item Details

Many of the nearly seventy million Americans with hypertension (high blood pressure) would like to bring it under control through lifestyle changes such as losing weight, cutting back on salt, exercising, or reducing stress. But, like it or not, most will require medication to get their blood pressure where it needs to be. The good news is that we have many excellent blood pressure medications, which, when prescribed wisely, can control hypertension in almost everyone. The bad news is that, despite good intentions, doctors are placing millions of people who have hypertension on medications, drag combinations, or doses that are wrong for them, with staggering consequences that include uncontrolled hypertension, higher risk for stroke and heart attack, avoidable side effects, and billions of wasted health care dollars. Hypertension and You is directed at the more than fifty million Americans who are taking blood pressure medication. It's the first book to make the case that something is terribly wrong with how doctors are prescribing drugs for this condition. Many patients suspect they might be on the wrong medication but don't know enough to be sure. Book jacket.
