will explain the best doctors for a particular health condition, such as high blood pressure.
article Health-care experts agree that if you’re struggling to get blood pressure under control, you should visit a specialist.
They’re also likely to recommend you take a blood pressure drug.
Some specialists may recommend taking blood pressure medications, too.
“We’ve known for a long time that there is some evidence that there are drugs that are associated with a lower risk of stroke, heart attack, and death,” says Dr. Jeffrey Fessler, an internal medicine physician at University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland.
Fessler says he thinks that’s a mistake.
“I don’t think you should go into a general practice and say, ‘Oh, you know, if you take this medication, you’re going to have lower blood pressure,'” he says.
But he does think you need to have a good understanding of the risks associated with taking a drug, because some medications have side effects, including blood clots.
