What Happens When You Take Medicine for High Blood Pressure?

What is High Blood Pressure?

High blood pressure is like a garden hose with too much water pressure. It can be tough on your body’s pipes!

Why Medicine?

Medicine helps lower the pressure, making it safer and easier for your heart to pump blood.

Types of Medicine

There are many types of medicines, like water pills or beta-blockers, each working in a special way.

Water pills help get rid of extra water and salt in your body, lowering the pressure!

Water Pills

Beta-blockers slow down your heartbeat, which makes each pump gentler.


How Medicine Helps

By taking medicine, the heart doesn't have to work as hard, and blood flows smoother.

Taking Medicine

It's important to take medicine exactly as your doctor tells you, even if you feel fine.


Regular check-ups are needed to make sure the medicine is working right.

Over time, taking your medicine can help prevent problems like heart disease.
