Understanding High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure — or hypertension — is a medical condition characterized by elevated pressure in the arteries.
It puts unnecessary strain on blood vessels and organs throughout the body, increasing the risk of severe health complications. Uncontrolled hypertension can also lead to cardiovascular disease, strokes, and cognitive decline.
Find peace of mind with LifeMD’s hypertension treatments and personalized care approach.
Not only can licensed medical professionals provide a professional diagnosis; they can also recommend the appropriate treatment and ensure quality follow-up care. Take control of your health by scheduling an appointment with LifeMD.

Medications Prescribed for High Blood Pressure

Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors

ACE inhibitors — such as lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril) and enalapril (Vasotec) — relax blood vessels and lower pressure. They also reduce the production of angiotensin II, a hormone that narrows blood vessels and raises blood pressure.

At the same time, ACE inhibitors prompt the production of bradykinin, which can help widen the blood vessels and reduce pressure.

Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs)

ARBs — such as losartan (Cozaar) and valsartan (Diovan) — help relax blood vessels by blocking the action of angiotensin II.

When the blood vessels are relaxed, the built-up pressure lowers and the risk of hypertension is reduced.

Beta Blockers

These medications — including metoprolol (Lopressor, Toprol XL) and atenolol (Tenormin) — block the effects of adrenaline on receptors in the body.

This helps to lower the heart rate and blood pressure by relaxing vessels and stabilizing irregular contractions.

Common Questions About Hypertension

Are some people more at risk of developing hypertension than others?

There are certain factors that can increase your chances of developing hypertension. These include:

• Being over the age of 65
• Having a family history of high blood pressure
• Being overweight or obese
• Having a sedentary lifestyle
• Consuming a high-sodium diet
• Drinking alcohol excessively
• Using tobacco products
• Having a chronic condition like diabetes or kidney disease
• Experiencing intense stress
• Taking certain medications

If you fall under any of these categories, be sure to speak to your doctor about monitoring your blood pressure more regularly to avoid developing other health issues.

When should you see a doctor for hypertension?

If you consistently have high blood pressure readings, it’s recommended to make an appointment with a specialist who can recommend the appropriate treatment. You should also make an appointment with your healthcare provider if you experience:

• Persistent headaches
• Dizziness
• Chest pain
• Shortness of breath

If you have a family history of high blood pressure, speak to your doctor about hypertension management as soon as possible. Early detection and management of hypertension is essential for maintaining your overall health.

How is high blood pressure usually treated?

Treatment for hypertension usually involves a combination of lifestyle changes and medication. Lifestyle changes may include:
• Adopting a healthier diet
• Exercising more regularly
• Weight management
• Limiting alcohol consumption
• Quitting smoking

Medications may also be prescribed to help lower blood pressure and manage the risk of developing hypertension. Your doctor will recommend medication depending on various factors, including:
• Your overall health
• The severity of your hypertension
• Existing medical conditions

If you’ve been diagnosed with hypertension, regular monitoring and follow-up appointments are essential to ensure your blood pressure remains under control.

Are online hypertension treatments effective and reliable?

Online hypertension treatments can be an effective and reliable method to manage your condition from the comfort of your home.

Online platforms like LifeMD offer telemedicine consultations with licensed healthcare professionals who can develop a personalized treatment plan to help you with your high blood pressure.

How do online hypertension treatments work?

Online treatments typically involve attending a virtual appointment with a healthcare provider. During these consultations, your doctor will ask you questions about your symptoms, medical and family history, and lifestyle habits. It’s important to be honest during your appointment to help your doctor make an accurate diagnosis.

Your healthcare provider may also recommend treatment options or additional testing, write prescriptions, or make adjustments to your current routine.

Can LifeMD provide me with prescription medication if needed?

If you attend a virtual appointment with LifeMD, your doctor can recommend a treatment plan to help you with your hypertension.

Your doctor will determine if medication is necessary and will write you a prescription if required. They can also write you a refill, if appropriate. These prescriptions will be sent to your local pharmacy, where your medications will be prepared for pickup.

What happens if I require blood tests for hypertension?

While your doctor will not be able to perform physical tests, LifeMD has partnered with lab facilities across the country. Your healthcare provider will write a referral for lab testing at a location near you.

Your results will be sent to your healthcare provider and discussed during a follow-up appointment.

Do I need insurance for online hypertension treatments?
