Pradaxa Hypertension Causes and Reviews


What is blood pressure?

Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time your heart beats, it pumps blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is highest when your heart beats, pumping the blood. This is called systolic pressure. When your heart is at rest, between beats, your blood pressure falls. This is called diastolic pressure.

Your blood pressure reading uses these two numbers. Usually the systolic number comes before or above the diastolic number. For example, 120/80 means a systolic of 120 and a diastolic of 80.

How is high blood pressure diagnosed?

High blood pressure usually has no symptoms. So the only way to find out if you have it is to get regular blood pressure checks from your health care provider. Your provider will use a gauge, a stethoscope or electronic sensor, and a blood pressure cuff. He or she will take two or more readings at separate appointments before making a diagnosis.

You have high blood pressure if your readings show that

  • Your systolic is 140 or higher OR
  • Your diastolic is 90 or higher

Some providers may consider you to have high blood pressure if you have other heart risk factors and

  • Your systolic is between 130 and 139 OR
  • Your diastolic is between 80 and 89

Blood pressure readings above 180 /120 are dangerously high and require immediate medical attention.

For children and teens, the health care provider compares the blood pressure reading to what is normal for other kids who are the same age, height, and gender.

What are the different types of high blood pressure?

There are two main types of high blood pressure: primary and secondary high blood pressure.

  • Primary, or essential, high blood pressure is the most common type of high blood pressure. For most people who get this kind of blood pressure, it develops over time as you get older.
  • Secondary high blood pressure is caused by another medical condition or use of certain medicines. It usually gets better after you treat that condition or stop taking the medicines that are causing it.
Why do I need to worry about high blood pressure?

When your blood pressure stays high over time, it causes the heart to pump harder and work overtime, possibly leading to serious health problems such as heart attack, stroke, heart failure, and kidney failure.

What are the treatments for high blood pressure?

Treatments for high blood pressure include heart-healthy lifestyle changes and medicines.

You will work with your provider to come up with a treatment plan. It may include only the lifestyle changes. These changes, such as heart-healthy eating and exercise, can be very effective. But sometimes the changes do not control or lower your high blood pressure. Then you may need to take medicine. There are different types of blood pressure medicines. Some people need to take more than one type.

If your high blood pressure is caused by another medical condition or medicine, treating that condition or stopping the medicine may lower your blood pressure.

Pradaxa Hypertension Reviews

Sat, 07 May 2011

I Started Pradaxa after my Dpctpr praised it. Within 3 days I had a sever cough and was spitting up blood. Also had very loose stools and problem with hemroiids. Haven't had trouble with them in over 50 years. I have pulmonary Hypertension and don't think this is the med for me. Back to warfin.

Sun, 24 Jul 2011

My mother 84 years of age visited a new Cardiologist and prescribed Pradaxa due to AFIB. She was otherwise active, healthy person, with only Hypertension which was controlled by one medication. She began her treatment in Mid May 150 mg. twice a day and needless to say she died from an extensive intracerebral hemorraghe on July 20, 2011. Neurosurgeons were not able to perform surgery due to the extent of damage that the brain suffered. Physicians indicate that PRADAXA contributed to this life threatening event. Also indicated that it should of not been administered due to her age and weight of 100 lbs. Please review all your loved ones medical needs and circumstances, get second opinions if necessary. This is a lethal drug which does not require INR testing and noone can predict the antigoagulation. PRADAXA is relatively a new drug which was just approved last OCTOBER, 2010 and should immediately be banned from the FDA.

Tue, 22 May 2012
