Hypertension, How do I get medicine ?

Im 36 years old and Ive had hypertenion for the past 4 years now. Ive been on medicine since then (210 over 110). Since then I have changed jobs who dont offer health insurance and cant afford a single policy. I have not been takin my medicine now for almost a month now. Starting to get headachs again and other symptoms. Need to know how do i get free medical attention for this and a refill on my prescription ? ANYONE CAN HELP ME PLEASE, before i have a stroke or a heart attack?

I suggest you write to the manufacterer of your particular medication, more and more of those companies are providing people who need assistance with their meds at a reduced price or even free. You could also call your doctor and ask him if you can get a bunch of samples from him, many doctors stock samples in fairly large quantities in thier offices.

I have hypertension. I have never had hypertension before and was shocked to know about non medicinal alternatives to significantly lower my blood pressure to what it used to be which was about 126/70. I went to the doctor and it was any where from 171/65 to 145/70 each time I go to the doctor. I am confused as to how this can be.

Hi. I took a 15 mg adderall (not prescribed) to study at around 10 am. At around 7-8pm, I smoked cannibas (also not prescribed). A few moments later I began to feel very dizzy, and my heart beat was extremely fast. I then felt pressure and dizziness, but not an excruciating pain to my chest. After that my body was becoming cold, starting with my hands and eventually shivering. I took a hot shower and tried to keep warm and just went to sleep after it calmed down a bit. Today my heartbeat seems "normal" but i still feel lightheaded somewhat and I'm concerned. Did I have a heart attack?

The left side of my chest and armpit, aswell as my left arm has been hurting alot. i have had a tight pressure on my heart for a week and a half now. i feel as if i am having the beginning stages of a heart attack and have small panic attacks before SOMETIMES calming myself down. I have smoked and eaten weed for 3 years now and enjoy it alot, it makes me calm in my current life situations but every time i eat or smoke it the pain increases tenfold and my heart beat becomes extremely irregular. I would appreciate advice from an experienced doctor on if it is physiological, something to do with my pigeon chest or because of smoking, maybe a combination.
I am 18 and appreciate your attention.
