Does aspirin really lower high blood pressure? Don't nsaid 's higher  blood pressure? Confused.

No: Asa (asprin) and asa products themselves inhibit platelets from clotting blood, which is why you take them ( aspin that is). When you have a heart attack. Nsaids do very little with clotting.

Should i take baby aspirin with blood pressure med

Depends: Depends on why you take aspirin. Women do not get the same benefit as men for primary prevention of heart disease, so ask your doctor if you really need baby aspirin. If you do need it, you can take it with BP meds.

I am on lisinopril for high blood pressure, what type of aspirin can I take?

Aspirin: For cardiovascular risk prevention a daily 81mg Aspirin is typically recommended. It is a good idea to first discuss this with your primary care physician and have your platelets and blood counts checked first.

Can i take a baby aspirin everyday? 18 years old and have high blood pressure. Benefits and side effects?

Can i take a baby aspirin everyday? 18 years old and have high blood pressure. Benefits and side effects?

Y would U want to?: Baby Aspirin helps prevent clots (thus heart attacks and ischemic (clot-related) type strokes. Unfortunately, by the same token, it increases with risk of bleeding including hemorrhagic (bleeding-type) strokes. No study i'm familiar with has shown benefit for Aspirin for anyone under the age of 50. Even 40 year old men showed no benefit for primary prevention. (people without disease).

No : both Meds can increase BP. You got to find cause for your hypertension and cause for your recurrent sinusitis. Sinuses are usually environmental like dust molds and foods while hypertension can be environmental nutritional and hormonal.

Call your doctor: Depends on what is being treated. Metoprolol can be used to treat high blood pressure and palpitations/rapid heart rate. The maximum daily dose for metoprolol is more than what you have taken, however i would strongly advise against taking any prescription medication other than as prescribed without consulting with your treating physician.

See a doctor : The best thing to do would be to see a primary care provider. There many issues going on that you're managing yourself, and as you get older don't be afraid to have a healthcare professional take a look. Don't forget you are always still in control, but may get some really good advice that you otherwise would get.
