UK Meds asked our favorite doctor, Dr. Christian Jessen, to explain High Blood Pressure. Below is what he has to say.

High blood pressure, known medically as hypertension, is when the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your blood vessels is consistently too high. You will see your blood pressure written as two numbers, the average reading being 120 over 80. Now the first number represents the pressure of your blood as your heart is contracting. The second number is the pressure when the heart is relaxed, in between beats.

High blood pressure is diagnosed when repeated readings are consistently over 140 over 90. It's estimated that over one in three adults have high blood pressure, but because it doesn't cause any symptoms most don't realize they have it. Failing to treat hypertension can be dangerous as it increases your risk of heart attack and stroke. It can also lead to kidney failure and peripheral artery disease. These are much less likely to occur if hypertension is properly managed.

There are also prescription medicines which are very effective at lowering blood pressure, and these are available at UK Meds.

What is Amlodipine?

It is a medical treatment that relaxes the tight and constricted muscles of the bloodstreams and therefore allows blood to flow freely. The treatment helps alleviate symptoms brought about by high blood pressure. The base result is that the heart pumps blood to all parts of the body without having to go through so much stress. Your heart stays healthy.

Amlodipine also works at preventing symptoms of angina from manifesting. It pushes cholesterol deposits out of the bloodstreams. All these are the reasons why Amlodipine has becomes a popular choice for doctors and patients.

How does Amlodipine work?

The medication is classified as a calcium channel blocker. It prevents the laying of calcium on the walls of the muscles in the bloodstreams inside the body. A good amount of calcium on the walls causes it to constrict. If the amount is limited, it becomes more relaxed and therefore allows blood to flow in a more free manner. This leads to dilated veins and arteries.

On the other hand, with this effect in place, the heart does not need to work doubly hard to pump blood to all the body parts since it moves freely around. The heart stays healthy for a longer time.

How to take Amlodipine?

The usual manner of taking the medication is one pill for every day of the treatment. The pills can be taken on an empty or full stomach.

The best thing to do is to take it in accordance with the doctor’s prescription. So even if you feel well already and still have many pills to take, you still have to consume what is left of it. Note that most people do not feel the symptoms of hypertension even when it is happening.
