Hypertension (Definition)

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.

See your GP: Your GP is best person to answer your question since we don't have Oxytetracycline here on this side of the pond. Presumably it's a member of tetracycline family for which minimal changes are needed for CrCl 50-80. Since you didn't mention your other drugs by name, check out www.drugs.com for more info. Chances are that your GP already checked everything out before prescribing all 4 drugs. Cheers! ...Read more

I'm taking orentitram along suppose to take adempas with it three time day 
Is this the med that I've got to deal with for how long will it get better in time and what causes the high blood pressure in the lungs how does it start

The cause of: idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension is unknown. Not sure if this is your diagnosis or if you have pulmonary hypertension due to heart or other lung disease or chronic blood clots. Narrowing and/or destruction of your small lung arteries raises pressure impairing blood flow through the lungs. The meds you are taking are typical. It will not improve with time. Work closely with your doctors:) ...Read more

Hypertension: These don't necessarily worsen if you take appropriate medications to control your hypertension as long as secondary causes of high blood pressure and pulmonary hypertension have been properly ruled out. I feel you should be under the care of a cardiologist and have an evaluation by a pulmonologist as well at your young age. ...Read more

3 readings of high bp.150/80, 140/80/, 130/90 in work settings but most of the time when im home my BP is 120/70-80when relax.Do I have hypertension?

High bp: Although many "excuses" can be advanced for high readings, these three readings are abnormal. Keep a diary at various times during the day, and patients are often surprised at what they find. Often simple lifestyle changes can correct them, like ahealthy diet, avoidance of alcohol, exercise, and adequate rest. Good luck. ...Read more
