Treatment of high pressure

If you suffer from high blood pressure, you may be wondering if medication is necessary to lower the pressure but we advise you not to take blood pressure medication if it is an emergency but you can treat high blood pressure with lifestyle changes that play a vital role in treating high blood pressure.

High pressure treatment

We offer you somelifestyle changes that help treat high pressure:


Blood pressure often increases with weight gain as weight gain can also lead to sleep apnea, which increases high blood pressure.

Weight loss is one of the most effective lifestyle changes that help treat high blood pressure. 

So if you are overweight or obese, losing even a small amount of weight can help lower your blood pressure. 

In general, blood pressure may drop by about 1 millimeter of mercury with each kilogram of weight lost.

Exercising regularly

Regular physical activity can lower high blood pressure by about 5 to 8 mmHg. It is important to continue exercising to keep your blood pressure from rising again. As a general goal, aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity each day.

Exercise can also help prevent high blood pressure. For those with high blood pressure, regular physical activity can lower blood pressure to safer levels.

Exercises that help treat high blood pressure include walking, running, cycling, and swimming.

Not drinking alcohol and quitting smoking 

Not drinking alcohol can help treat high blood pressure, as drinking alcohol can raise blood pressure by several points. It can also reduce the effectiveness of blood pressure medications.

Smoking increases blood pressure, stopping smoking helps lower blood pressure. It can also reduce the risk of heart disease and improve overall health, which may lead to a longer life. 


Good sleep

Poor sleep and getting less than six hours of sleep each night for several weeks can contribute to high blood pressure.

 A number of problems can disrupt sleep, including sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and general insomnia.

Tell your doctor if you often have trouble sleeping. Finding and treating the cause can help improve sleep. However, if you don't have sleep apnea or restless leg syndrome, follow these simple tips for more restful sleep:


  • Stick to a sleep schedule: Go to bed and wake up at the same time each day. 
  • Try to keep the same schedule on weeknights and on weekends.
  • Keep the bedroom cool, quiet and dark.
  •  Do something relaxing in the hour before bedtime.
  •  This may include taking a warm bath or doing relaxation exercises. 
  • Avoid bright light, such as light from a TV or computer screen.
  • Avoid large meals near bedtime
  • . Limit or avoid nicotine, caffeine, and alcohol near bedtime as well.
  • Minimize naps: For those who find daytime naps beneficial, limiting naps to 30 minutes earlier in the day may help sleep at night.

 Reducing stress

Stress, tension, and overthinking may contribute to high blood pressure. 

However, it can't hurt to identify the causes of stress, such as work, family, finances, or illness, and find ways to reduce stress. Try the following:

  • Avoid trying to do too much, plan your day and focus on your priorities, give enough time to get what needs to be done.
  • Make plans to solve your family problems. For a work problem, talk to one of your colleagues to work out a solution to any work problem.
  • Avoid stress: For example, if rush hour traffic causes stress, travel at a different time or take public transportation. Avoid stressful people if possible.
  • Make time to relax: Take some time each day to sit quietly and breathe deeply. 
  • Make time for fun activities or hobbies, such as walking, cooking, or volunteering.

 Eating a healthy diet

Eating a diet rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and dairy products that are low in fat and low in saturated fat and cholesterol can lower high blood pressure by up to 11 mm Hg.

Potassium in the diet can reduce the effects of salt (sodium) on blood pressure. The best sources of potassium are foods, such as fruits and vegetables, rather than supplements. Aim for 3,500 to 5,000 mg per day, which may lower blood pressure by 4 to 5 mmHg.



When healthy lifestyle changes alone do not control or lower your high blood pressure, your doctor may prescribe blood pressure medications, all of which are available at Adam's Pharmacy and can be ordered from the site easily. 

These medications work in different ways to lower your blood pressure. When prescribing medications, consider also their effect on other conditions you have, such as heart disease or kidney disease.

Maintain healthy lifestyle changes while taking these medications. A combination of medications and heart-healthy lifestyle changes can help control and lower high blood pressure and prevent heart disease.

Talk to your doctor if you have any concerns about medication side effects. Your dose may be changed or a new medication prescribed to treat high blood pressure. Many people need to take two or more medications. 

There are many very common potential high blood pressure medications that your doctor may prescribe. 

  • Angiotensin receptor blockers prevent blood vessels from narrowing.
  • Calcium channel blockers prevent calcium from entering the muscle cells of your heart and blood vessels. This allows the blood vessels to relax.
  • Diuretics remove excess water and sodium (salt) from your body, which reduces the amount of fluid in your blood.
  •  Diuretics are often used with other antihypertensive drugs, sometimes in one combined pill.
  • Beta blockers help your heart beat slower and with less force. As a result, your heart pumps less blood through your blood vessels. 

Remember that you must continue to change the lifestyle to get the best results in treating high pressure and enjoy good health and a disease-free body, but if the high pressure is not controlled by the methods we presented to you in the article, you must go to the specialist doctor and diagnose your condition and prescribe the appropriate medication for you, But we advise with medication to continue to change your lifestyle.
