Living with Hypertension

Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a condition that many people joke about as being a sign of stress. However, some people can develop this problem as a chronic condition, which can have long-lasting repercussions on your health. If you have hypertension, there are some things that you can do that make living with this condition safer and easier.

Frustratingly, sometimes people can develop hypertension as a result of certain medications. In fact, the oral contraceptive YAZ, also sold as Yasmin and Ocella, has been linked to high blood pressure. If you now suffer from hypertension due to taking YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, you should not let this pharmaceutical negligence go unpunished. Contact a YAZ lawsuit attorney from Williams Kherkher today at 800-761-3187 to discuss your case.

The Dangers of High Blood Pressure

It seems as if high pressure in your veins may help you push oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood around your body faster. However, this is not actually the case. With hypertension, your heart must work harder to pump blood through your narrowed veins. This can enlarge your heart muscle and cause it to stiffen.

Steps to Control Hypertension

Although you may not be able to completely go back to a normal blood pressure, you can take steps to prevent your hypertension from worsening. This includes:

  • Avoiding tobacco and alcohol
  • Exercising
  • Staying at a healthy weight
  • Learning methods to control stress
  • Taking blood pressure medication

Of course, if a medication like YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella caused your hypertension, you should stop taking this dangerous drug immediately. You should also talk to a lawyer about your case.
