Uncle Zhou, 56, is from Jinan, Shandong Province.His physical quality has been very good, so when the people around him are one after another became high blood pressure and high blood fat, he is still a healthy middle-aged and old people, quite proud.However, the good times did not last long, in the year-end physical examination, Uncle Zhou unfortunately found hypertension.Because his physical quality is good, so Uncle Zhou is resistant to take medicine.He began to look on the Internet for some ways to lower blood pressure, such as through exercise, lose weight, reduce salt intake, quit smoking and drinking, but unexpectedly, after 2 months of trying, Uncle Zhou confessed to being a chicken.Because eating less salt, I feel that food is not appetizing, and smoking and drinking can only be “fishing for three days, drying nets for two days”, which is impossible.Facing the high pressure of 160mmHg, Uncle Zhou threw in the towel.Strange to say, since the diagnosis of high blood pressure, Uncle Zhou often feel dizzy and weak, then 2 months of lifestyle improvement, also declared failure, had to take medicine to reduce blood pressure.Because there are hypertension patients around, I have heard them say that they can not take good antihypertensive drugs at the beginning, they should take cheap ones, which can not be controlled, and then change to expensive antihypertensive drugs.So, Uncle Zhou took cheap nifedipine tablets in the drugstore.Cheap is cheap, 7 dollars, 100 pieces, but this kind of nifediping piece is common piece, belong to short-acting medicine, biological utilization degree is low, and fluctuation of drug plasma concentration slant is big, so often can appear tachycardia, palpitation and headache and other side effects.Although it can lower blood pressure, but not stable blood pressure, and obvious side effects.After taking nifedipine tablet for 1 month, Zhou Shu felt that the side effects of this medicine were obvious and had to change the new medicine.In order to save the hospital registration fee, he directly chose to ask patients for advice on antihypertensive drugs.And his fellow patient was on Benazepril hydrochloride.As a primal drug, it is also a common antihypertensive drug.It can reverse myocardial hypertrophy, protect ischemic myocardium, promote water and sodium excretion, reduce water and sodium retention.Clinically, it is often used for hypertension, heart failure, left ventricular hypertrophy, coronary heart disease, atrial fibrillation and other diseases.Chow in the benazepril hydrochloride after taking, no obvious side effects, and blood pressure control has reached the standard.He even invited his fellow patients to dinner to express his gratitude.But the good times did not last long, the most common adverse reaction of Puli drugs – dry cough, or happened in Uncle Zhou.Uncle Zhou began to think that his smoking is the reason, but after he quit smoking, still do not stop the dry cough, really can not stand, had to go to the hospital examination, also thought that is lung cancer.It turned out to be a false alarm, and prides were to blame.And sartan drugs are generally considered to be used in the replacement of primal antihypertensive drugs.So, at the doctor’s suggestion, Uncle Zhou changed to valsartan drugs.Sartan and Pullides, both renin-angiotensin system inhibitors, play an important role in cardiovascular activity and water-electrolyte balance regulation.The dry cough disappeared soon after the use of sartan antihypertensive drugs.This also let Zhou Shu admire the doctor’s level, so Zhou Shu according to the doctor’s guidance, insist on taking sartan antihypertensive drugs.The frequency of taking medicine once a day also made Uncle Zhou very satisfied. He no longer needed to take nifedipine ordinary tablets three times a day, and there was no dry cough of Benazepril hydrochloride.It has been more than a year now, and Uncle Zhou’s antihypertensive medicine is very effective.It can stably control blood pressure within the normal range and avoid obvious side effects.He found the right blood pressure medicine, so to speak.This process is all experience, so I share with you, I hope it will be helpful to you.It is worth noting that some people can control their blood pressure by taking nifedipine tablets, and some people will not have obvious dry cough after taking Prides.Therefore, the final choice of drugs, are based on their own circumstances to decide, not uniform.
