When blood pressure is not controlled you are at risk of heart attack, stroke, chronic kidney disease and even problems with your vision. One of the ways you can help prevent and control high blood pressure is to make some lifestyle changes. This can often mean a combination of medication, light exercise and diet changes. Often, a single blood pressure drug may not be enough to control your blood pressure, and you may need to take two or more drugs.
It is very important that you take the medications prescribed to you. If you have side effects, your health care provider can substitute a different medication.
