Video Text
Some people do need to use medication, along with lifestyle changes, to help them reduce their high blood pressure.
There are many medications to control high blood pressure and each one works a slightly different way. Everyone reacts differently to medicine, so you may need to try a few different types before your doctor finds the best medicine for you.
If your doctor has prescribed pills for you, it is very important that you take them exactly as directed.
Controlling high blood pressure will probably be a life-long commitment for you, and medications may be a part of your treatment. Even if you feel well, you still need to take your medicine. It is impossible to feel the damage that could be happening inside of your body until it is too late.
