High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) Questions

About High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)

What is hypertension?

Hypertension is higher-than-normal levels of blood pressure. (Blood pressure is the force your blood applies to the inner artery walls.) The higher your blood pressure, the harder your heart has to work to pump blood. If left untreated, high blood pressure increases the risk of serious health issues like heart attack, kidney disease and stroke.

What causes hypertension?

Hypertension—or high blood pressure—is not caused by one single event or risk factor. Common factors that play a role in elevating blood pressure include:

  • Smoking
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Stress
  • Genetics and family history
  • Gender (it is more common in those assigned male at birth)
  • Kidney disease
What are the symptoms of hypertension?

Hypertension is sometimes called a “silent killer” because it doesn’t usually cause symptoms until it has reached a severe stage. This is why it's vital to get regular blood pressure screenings during primary health care visits. When symptoms do occur, they can include shortness of breath, nosebleeds, headaches and irregular heartbeat.

How long does hypertension last?

Depending on the cause and severity, hypertension can be improved or even reversed. The right medication, a healthy lifestyle and/or treatment of underlying medical conditions can all help lower blood pressure levels.

What are the hypertension diagnosis guidelines?

The American Heart Association categorizes blood pressure ranges through 2 blood pressure reading markers. Systolic mm Hg is the upper number and diastolic mm Hg is the lower number.

  • Stage 1 hypertension: Between 130-139 systolic or 80-89 diastolic.
  • Stage 2 hypertension: At least 140 systolic or at least 90 diastolic.
  • Hypertensive crisis: Above 180 systolic and/or over 120 diastolic. If you have such a reading, seek medical help immediately.
Why does Dr. B only offer hypertension medication refills?

For your safety, an initial hypertension diagnosis should come from an in-person medical provider—not a telehealth model. Once you have a diagnosis and a prescription, Dr. B can help you refill that prescription through an online consultation. You must provide a photo of your most recent hypertension medication bottle with your name and the medication name clearly visible. You’ll also have to share a blood pressure reading taken within the last 3 months.

Do I have hypertension or hypotension?

Hypotension happens when blood pressure is too low. It often causes no symptoms. When it does, they can include hypertension-like symptoms that include dizziness, blurred vision, nausea and vomiting. Symptoms specific to hypotension include fatigue, shallow breathing and unusual behavior.

What are the treatments Dr. B offers for hypertension?

Dr. B offers refill prescriptions for a variety of hypertension medicines. Treatments fall into 5 categories:

  • Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors help your body produce lower levels of angiotensin—a chemical that narrows the arteries. This relaxes blood vessels, which lowers blood pressure. ACE inhibitors include Lisinopril and Enalapril.
  • Calcium channel blockers (CCBs) prevent calcium from entering the arteries and heart, opening blood vessels and reducing blood pressure. CCBs include Amlodipine, Diltiazem and Tiazac.
  • Beta-blockers (or beta-adrenergic blocking agents) help reduce blood pressure by blocking the effects of epinephrine—a hormone that increases cardiac activity. Beta-blockers include Propranolol, Metoprolol Succinate and Carvedilol.
  • Diuretics help manage blood pressure by increasing urination. This releases excess water, sodium and certain electrolytes from your body. Diuretics include Hydrochlorothiazide and Chlorthalidone.
  • Alpha agonists help relax blood vessels by binding to alpha-1 and alpha-2 receptors in the muscle cells. Alpha agonists include Clonidine HCL and its brand versions Catapres-TTS and Nexiclon XR.

Some hypertension treatments consist of 2 medications—one from each of the above categories. The combinations include:

  • Irbesartan Hydrochlorothiazide and its brand version Avalide
  • Benazepril-Hydrochlorothiazide
  • Losartan Hydrochlorothiazide and its brand version Hyzaar
  • Amlodipine Benazepril and its brand version Lotrel
  • Bisoprolol-Hydrochlorothiazide and its brand version Ziac
How is hypertension treatment taken?

Hypertension medications are available as capsules, tablets, oral solutions and transdermal patches. Follow your prescribing doctor’s dosing instructions carefully.

What are common hypertension treatment side effects?

Hypertension treatments do not typically cause side effects. If they do occur, they are usually mild and include headaches, dizziness, nausea or swollen ankles and feet. Talk to your prescribing doctor if you experience serious side effects like face swelling, a severe allergic reaction or yellowing of the skin of eyes.

How can I get a refill for my hypertension prescription online?

Dr. B’s hassle-free online medical consultations can help you refill your current prescription for medications like Norvasc, Amlodipine and Losartan online. First, complete a comprehensive health assessment. A licensed medical provider will review your assessment. If they recommend a prescription refill, they will send it to your pharmacy of choice.
