many persons use more than one
Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
Your mother's blood pressure readings are very good.
It is not usual for a person to be on more than one anti hypertensive, in fact scores of hypertensive patients require more than one med for control.This is the reason that there are actually combination blood pressure medications which are pills with 2 tablets in one. Examples are (1) zestorectic- combination of lisinopril
HCT - combination of metoprolol
There are quite a few more using these or other medications.
High blood pressure
medications are divided into different families of drugs. Because they come from different medication families, they work to decrease the blood pressure in different ways or essentially help each other out.
So though there are some persons who may only need one medication to control their blood pressure, quite a few persons need more. There are some individuals on at least 5 anti hypertensives.
If your mother is not experiencing any significant side effects associated with the medications, it would be best to continue them. If she is having issues then you may want to discuss this with her doctor.
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
