  • Medications factsheets. Explaining all the common blood pressure medications, including the side-effects you may experience.
  • The A-Z of blood pressure. This booklet is a complete guide to everything you need to know about high blood pressure – what it is, living well with it, the tests you might have and the medications available.

“Blood Pressure UK is there for people with high blood pressure to get constructive support and explanations. You only get nine minutes during a doctor’s appointment so understandably your GP doesn’t always have time to answer all your questions and concerns, and that’s where Blood Pressure UK can help.”  Edric Aris, Blood Pressure UK volunteer

“When I was diagnosed I was desperate to speak to someone so I searched the internet and found Blood Pressure UK. I was delighted with the advice and support I received which was second to none. They gave me the courage to make specific lifestyle changes which helped lower my blood pressure.”  Jean Samtula, long-standing Blood Pressure UK member
