How long should someone take blood presure medication? What is the difference between exforge and exforge htc? And for how long should some one be takten it. Should they continue even if the BP goes down to normal?
2 or 3 ingredients. Exforge is a combo of amlodipine and valsartan. Exforge hct (amlodipine and hydrochlorothiazide and valsartan) is the same plus hydrochlorothiazide. One needs lifetime BP control. Whether with Exforge or different medicine: whatever it takes. If BP normalizes (let's say, with weight loss), then the medicine can be reduced or even stopped as long as BP stays normal. Let me add: Exforge is insanely expensive. There are far cheaper effective meds.
Exforge (amlodipine and valsartan) . Exforge is amlodipine and valsartan, and Exforge hct (amlodipine and hydrochlorothiazide and valsartan) also has an additional medication, hydrochlorothiaze, in it. Once a patient is diagnosed with high blood pressure they almost always have to take medication for the rest of their lives to prevent stroke, heart attacks, and kidney disease. Rarely, for example if a patient loses a great deal of weight or has decreased blood pressure with age, then the dose can be reduced or very rarely stopped, but almost all patients with hypertension will need to take medications forever to stop other diseases.
