High Blood Pressure Hemorrhoids
A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more

Was on clonadine for high blood pressure .03 3 times a day. Switched pcp s how do you wein off this horrible drug, from my position? HELP?
Easy, decrease dose/: day about 1/4 to 1/3 at a time (split pills), check BP response a few times a day over the next several days & then similarly decrease again. Clonidine in effect fools brain stem control that BP is higher than it really is. Thus if dose ?ed to rapidly, brain perceives a sudden BP drop, tightens arterioles body wide & drives BP ?. If you are monitoring BP, you can see ?es & adjust accordingly. ...Read more
I'm supposed to take 1 pill of Levothyroxine/150mg in a day.....but accidentally took 2 because I mistook it for my high blood pressure medicine. I s?
Just don't repeat...: Sorry to see such, which is not uncommon in daily living for many. For Levothyroxine, you may just wait, watch, and see; of course, do not repeat it and move on; it is unlikely to cause undue effect from what you described, i.e., one-time event! As always, take any drug with caution esp. at the beginning of its use. ...Read more

Not "cause": In reality we do not KNOW the true cause of high blood pressure. We do know many things that will drive it up in a predisposed individual. Considering about 30% of population has HTN, it is fairly common. Smoking and/or any act that stresses the body or mind can drive BP up in someone wo already has HTN or is genetically "ripe" to develop HTN ...Read more
Multiple causes: There are many causes of high BP. Aging and hardening of arteries are the most common causes. Very few have cure. The treatments can be directed to the specific causes, if known. However, essential hypertension is one when the cause is unknown. Most high BP can be controlled but not cured by behavioral treatment, lifestyle modification, diet, exercise, weight loss and medication. ...Read more
High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) (Definition)
A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure (top number) and a diastolic blood pressure (bottom number). The systolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the artery when the heart is at maximum contraction. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the artery when the heart is at maximum relaxation. Ideal blood pressure is 120/80 or lower. High blood pressure, or hypertension, is 140/90 or higher. ...Read more
