Inform your doctor of all your medications
If you’re already taking other high blood maintenance or medications for other conditions, always inform your doctor. Some medicines shouldn’t be taken together, or mixing them might make side effects worse. So try to inform your doctor before they prescribe you any new medication.
Always keep a stock of medicine at hand
The last thing you want is to run out of medication when you need it most. Try to keep a stock of medication at hand, and be sure to buy extra. That way, if for any reason you’re unable to buy medication, you’ll always have a supply on hand.
Don’t stop taking your medication
You might notice your blood pressure start to normalize once you take your high blood maintenance meds. This is a sign that the medication is working, though this doesn’t mean that you can stop taking it.
Once you stop taking your medication, chances are, your blood pressure will go back to the way it was. So keep taking your medication until your doctor says to stop.
Do not share your medication with others
Lastly, never ever share your medication with other people. It might be tempting to do so, especially if they also have hypertension, but if they don’t need the medicine, or if their doctor hasn’t prescribed it, then you should not give them your meds.
