Blood Pressure Home > Treat High Blood Pressure

After a person is diagnosed with high blood pressure (hypertension), their healthcare provider will likely recommend several lifestyle changes, such as losing weight or making dietary changes. In addition, some people may need to take medication to treat their high blood pressure.
 
Many high blood pressure medications are available, and each one works in a slightly different way. Because people often react to a drug in different ways, you may find it necessary to try a few different types of products before finding the ones that work best for your particular situation.
