A good ADD-ON choice for Blood Pressure Control and Heart Disease Protection
Micardis: Works well in combination with other key blood pressure medications
Another reason that Micardis is a good choice for Blood Pressure Control and Heart Disease Protection is the fact that you can add it to many other different types of blood pressure pills.
Why is this important?
As doctors, we know that many, perhaps even most patients, will require more than one medication to control their blood pressure, to reach the treatment goal of 130/80 or less, and to be fully protected against heart disease and stroke.
So it is reassuring that excellent research supports the idea that, for example, Micardis can be added to either amlodipine (Norvasc), a calcium-channel blocker, or that Micardis can be added to a diuretic, a water pill such as hydrochlorothiazide. In fact, it seems that the combination of the medications results in synergy, in bringing out the best in the other medicine, for excellent control and protection.
What is also convenient for patients is that Micardis Plus has, in a single tablet, TWO medications, Micardis + the diuretic water pill hydrochlorothiazide. Patients like the convenience and effectiveness of taking TWO medications in one tablet.
As doctors, we know that cutting down on the number of tablets a person has to take helps people to follow instructions.
Micardis is a good ADD-ON choice, to be used in addition to other types of medications, for Blood Pressure Control and Heart Disease Protection.
