Home > Health & Wellness > Health Library > High Blood Pressure: Taking Medicines Properly
Medicines work really well to control high blood pressure in
most people. But they won't work if you don't take them as directed.
Here's how you can get started on taking your medicines properly.
It may not be too hard for
most people to remember to take just one pill a day. But if you start adding
more pills—pills that you need to take at different times and in different
doses—it can get confusing.
A key to taking
your medicines properly is to stay organized:
more you know about your medicines, the easier it will be to stay on your
schedule and take your pills properly.
