Do high blood pressure medications produce side effects?

ANSWER

Any medication can cause side effects, and high blood pressure medications are no exception.

Still, it's important to stay informed and work closely with your doctor to manage any side effects you may have. There's no reason to suffer in silence. Today, there are more medication options than ever for managing high blood pressure.
