A.The best way to lower your high blood pressure and then keep the blood pressure down is to be consistent:

  • Make sure you take your blood pressure medicines as prescribed, and that you don't start to miss days or forget to take them
  • Keep up with the healthy food and lifestyle choices and make it a way of life
  • Finally, make sure you keep a regular check on your blood pressure, so that if it does creep up you can take action straight away.

Having high blood pressure is serious and something that you should not ignore. But by taking control of your blood pressure, by taking positive action and by making a commitment to your treatment, you can look forward to a longer and healthier life.
