Taking multiple medications for hypertension.

Q: Why has my husband been given 3 different medications for hypertension? Why give three different medications for the same symptom? His dosages are, 1of 10mg another of 10mg and another of 5mg.

A: Your husband has been given three different drugs because his high blood pressure was not controlled with one medication. The symptom of high blood pressure is not able to be controlled in many people with just one medicine. Doctors start adding pills when one isn’t enough to achieve control. Although there may just be one symptom, it can take more than one drug to control or cure other diseases besides high blood pressure. Too often people depend on pills to get their disease into control rather than making needed life style changes. To learn more about a healthier way of life go to this page at AmericaOntheMove.org.
