Welcome to Health Care Magic
Blood pressure is a silent killer.
There are no symptoms, until a catastrophe strikes...
It will damage the heart (attack), brain (paralysis
(failure) and/or eyes.
It should be controlled...
Life style changes like diet and exercise / stopping tobacco and alcohol - have a small and definite role - but it is very much limited...
"Had a very bad side effect" is not a valid explanation for refusing the drug...
There are several classes of drugs and there are several drugs in each class
It is possible to find one that will suit almost every individual.
See a cardiologist or nephrologist
It is dangerous to have high BP
and avoid drugs - it is risk, not worth taking...
Wishing speedy recovery
