Whether you think you
can succeed at making lifestyle changes.
Doctors usually prescribe a single, low-dose medicine
first. If blood pressure is not controlled, your doctor may change the dosage
or try a different medicine or combination of medicines. It is common to try
several medicines before blood pressure is successfully controlled. Many
people need more than one medicine to get the best results.
Don't take any other prescription medicines, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, or supplements unless you talk to your doctor first. Medicines
can interact with each other and keep blood pressure medicines from working
right or cause a bad reaction.
