High Blood Pressure Patients: Improper Medication May Cause Kidney FailureWith high blood pressure, you can not treat it lightly. Because it does not only do direct harm to your body, but also cause a variety of complications. Besides, hypertension is the third leading cause of chronic kidney failure.

A large number of patients are hospitalized each year due to kidney damage caused by long-term uncontrolled hypertension. At present, there is no substitute for the effect of antihypertensive drugs on hypertension. The use of antihypertensive drugs and timely medication can maintain long-term stability of blood pressure and avoid complications. But the risk of blood pressure going up and down is greater if drugs are not taken seriously.

How does hypertensive patient use medicine more safely?

To maintain stable blood pressure, it is not a matter of time, and patients need to have more patience. Some patients often forget to take the medicine due to busy work, fear of side effects and other reasons, resulting in irreversible consequences, but in fact these are avoidable.

Three principles should be kept in mind for the safe medication for patients with hypertension: take the medicine according to the dosage, and sufficient drugs can guarantee the blood drug concentration and play a role in hypertension; Take the medicine on time, the blood pressure is different in different time periods. You should attach importance to the medication especially from 6-9 am to 4-6 pm. Combined application of long-term antihypertensive drugs has better effect.

Can you stop medicine when blood pressure is normal? When can you stop medicine without causing kidney damage?

A lot of people think that medicine can be stopped when blood pressure is normal. However, in fact, specific problems should be analyzed. If you just achieve short-term blood pressure stability, you cannot stop the medicine immediately. If your blood pressure has been stabilized for over 1 year, you can taper the medicine slowly rather than suddenly. For some patients, they may take antihypertensive drugs to protect kidneys and prevent cardiovascular disease, even though blood pressure is normal, they can not stop the medicine.

For high blood pressure caused by high work pressure and obesity, it is ok to discontinue the drug after taking it, and high blood pressure caused by heart disease can also be discontinued to reduce the burden.
