confusion, inability to concentrate and complete a task, lack of judgement, stress and anxiety. Has anyone found a natural non-pharma cure for high blood pressure?
All drugs seem to have side effects. Some of them are often random or unusual. A lot of the side effects depend on the person. That being said first do you really need to take the drug? Can it be controlled by diet and exercise? Depends on the stage I guess. And number two work with your doctor. Try a different drug. Often times certain drugs work on one person and fail on another. There are a lot of BP drugs out there though so you should be able to find one that works for you.
That's a broad brush to paint many varied medications with. Is your statement based on your personal experience, or a study, or what? I haven't heard of such a generalization. Please, do let us know where your information comes from.
There are many different BP meds. If you've exhausted everything to try before taking a med, such as losing weight, reducing sodium, exercising, meditation, drinking more fluids - some say taking calcium can help too. Hope you can find a medication that can help, should you need one. Regards - EJ23
A recent study has demonstrated that women, not men, are affected very differently by statins and may not do any good for women. Perhaps you are confusing the information. It is women who have those problems. They are now deciding if women should have such medications.
Men may well become depressed and show emotional changes as they often have problems identifying illness and can consider illness of any type as a failing. That confused approach isn't for all men or women of course. Just to be considered. What is being suggested is more an urban myth. Please do more reading on the subject and be reassured.
Correcting these problems requires diet changes, exercise, proper weight, and good genetics. If the genetics are against you, as it is for some, then be sure to do the other things. You can try consulting a homeopathic physician for ideas. Just be sure to be treated if you need it.
