(1) Antihypertensive should not be based on feelings, just take it if you want to, and not take it if you don't, but you must monitor your blood pressure frequently to master your blood pressure rules and the effect of drugs to lower blood pressure.

(2) Long-term adherence to antihypertensive therapy can not be stopped casually, some drugs suddenly stopped, it will produce rebound phenomenon, so that blood pressure suddenly increased, even higher than before taking the drug, easy to accidents.

(3) When choosing drugs, it is necessary to minimize or eliminate the side effects of drugs. One drug can't increase the dose blindly if it is not satisfied with antihypertensive drugs. It can be combined with another drug to reduce side effects.

(4) In order to prevent the blood pressure from fluctuating too much to reduce the damage to target organs caused by fluctuations in blood pressure, try to use long-acting antihypertensive drugs to lower blood pressure smoothly.
