The Doctor is In: Learn to understand high blood pressure
Medications for high blood pressure are effective for lowering your blood pressure numbers, but if you take them away, you still have high blood pressure.
They don’t necessarily fix the problem, and some people complain of the side effects such as dizziness, fatigue, drowsiness and loss of libido, not to mention the toll they take on your liver.
Many people try alternatives to medications to keep their pressure down. Some get results with supplements like CoQ10, garlic, minerals or herbal remedies. Some respond to eating a low-fat diet and avoiding excess salt.
