Meds to lower BP: Controlling BP with medications, especially beta blockers, ACE inhibitors, and diuretics will help to reduce risk of heart injury, heart failure and heart pain (angina). Some of the effects of high BP on the heart can be reversed with these BP meds and optimum control of BP (110-130/60-80). Follow up with primary MD and/or specialists (cardiologist and nephrologist if kidney problems).
