Nowadays, with the improvement of people's living conditions, hypertension has become a common long-term chronic disease in clinical practice. Among middle-aged and elderly people, the prevalence of hypertension is higher. In addition to many restrictions on diet, hypertensive patients need to take antihypertensive drugs every day. In addition, depending on the patient's condition, the doctor will suggest different medicines. However, I would like to remind everyone that when changing blood pressure medicine, don't bear it! 4 kinds of conditions may require changing medicine.
Many hypertensive patients are worried, "Will taking the same antihypertensive drug for a long time produce drug resistance and affect the antihypertensive effect?" In order to ensure the antihypertensive effect, is it necessary to change blood pressureMedicine to eat? Does this statement make sense?
Experts in cardiology believe that long-term use of the same antihypertensive drug will not produce "resistance" and the antihypertensive effect will not be affected; on the contrary, because taking The adverse reactions caused by the drug will be weakened, that is, "tolerability" is enhanced. When initially taking antihypertensive drugs, some patients will experience mild or severe adverse reactions. After repeated administration of the drug, the body's response to the drug will decrease, and adverse reactions will be reduced, which is more conducive to doctors' discretion to increase the dose, better stabilize blood pressure, and prevent hypertension.
1. When blood pressure control is not ideal. The purpose of taking antihypertensive drugs is to keep blood pressure stable for a long time at a target value of ≤130 mm Hg to prevent complications of hypertension. If the current antihypertensive drug has used the maximum dose of the drug, but the blood pressure is still not up to the standard, or fluctuates, it is necessary to consider changing the drug.
2. When the side effects are severe. BuckAlthough the medicine is safe, it may still have side effects. Such as pristine drugs can cause dry cough. If the dry cough does not stop for more than 2 weeks, it proves that you are intolerant to the drug and you need to change the dressing.
3. When the condition changes. If there is no coronary heart disease before, but now it is found that there is coronary heart disease, if you continue to take the previous pristine antihypertensive drugs may not be conducive to the treatment of coronary heart disease, you need to change to dipine antihypertensive drugs.
4. Other special circumstances. If there are antihypertensive drugs that are more convenient to take or more suitable for the current condition, they can be adjusted.
It is important to remember that the adjustment of antihypertensive drugs in any situation should be carried out with related inspections, and must be carried out under the guidance of a doctor! Do not reduce or add drugs blindly, especially It’s a new drug without authorization!
Also suffer from high blood pressure, but everyone’s physical condition and underlying disease may be completely different, and their reaction to the same drugIt is also very different. What's more, antihypertensive drugs are divided into 5 categories, and the antihypertensive principle and mechanism of each antihypertensive drug are quite different. Even if the same antihypertensive drug is taken, each patient has different effects and side effects. It may be a "good medicine" for this patient, and a "viral drug" for another patient.
For example, a diuretic like plugazine, for cardiogenic edema, adding a diuretic to the basic antihypertensive drug will have a good effect. However, if serum potassium is low and uric acid is high, it should be used with caution or forbidden.
Therefore, taking medicine is risky, and you need to be cautious when testing medicine! Antihypertensive drugs that are suitable for others may not be suitable for you. Do not try medicine blindly!
To sum up, We all finally understand that there are some precautions for taking antihypertensive drugs. In life, some patients with high blood pressure take a medicine for a long time, which may have an adverse effect on the effect of reducing blood pressure and health. Therefore, when you change blood pressure medicine, don’t bear it! 4 casesCan have a dressing change. Friends must collect the daily health care knowledge of these hypertension diseases, and they will definitely be useful in the future.
