Arterial hypertension is a real scourge of modern society. Its victims are getting younger, and the forces of many leading pharmaceutical companies are directed at combating this dangerous insidious disease. The result of their work was the hypotensive drugs of the last generation - a whole list of products that are more effective and safe for the body than the previous ones.
To live and be treated in a new way
What is hypertension, or, simply, hypertension, is known to everyone. If the numbers on the tonometer have repeatedly exceeded the permissible limits, then it is time to consult a doctor. It is important to remember that, even noticing the signs of hypertension, you cannot prescribe medication for yourself. It is important not only to eliminate the symptoms, but also to correctly influence the initial cause.
Medicine has been struggling with this disease for many years, the choice of antihypertensive drugs in pharmacies is quite large. But most of the drugs, the names of which are still familiar to our grandmothers, do not cure hypertension, but only mask it, giving the body a temporary respite. Some of them have a sedative effect, affecting the nervous system; others affect the blood vessels, weakening the tone of the walls. Almost all of these drugs have a huge list of contraindications and side effects: increased heart rate, palpitations, sweating - only a small fraction. Prescribe them should be a doctor, taking into account the patient's history. It is strictly forbidden to stop taking medicines on your own and abruptly stop taking them!
Simultaneously with antihypertensive drugs, diuretics are prescribed. They have a positive effect on the work of the heart, reduce the volume of fluid in the tissues, block the formation of adrenaline. But, removing potassium from the body, diuretics violate the metabolic processes, causing the deposition of calcium salts. In addition, long-term use can cause diabetes, weakness, insomnia and impotence in the stronger sex.
Somewhat differently, at the cell level, adrenergic blockers, calcium antagonists and ACE inhibitors act. They are prescribed to people suffering from diabetes, with atherosclerosis and problems with the thyroid gland.
Still, obtaining new-generation drugs is a real breakthrough in the treatment of hypertension. In addition to effectively reducing blood pressure, lowering blood cholesterol levels, protecting blood vessels, the antihypertensive drugs of the new generation have another very important quality: their action is cumulative and continues even after the drug is removed from the body.
The list of antihypertensive drugs of the last generation (third) includes losartan, fiziotenz, aegilok.
