Cardiologist Zaur Shugushev warned about the consequences of self-medication
According to the expert, when a personthe pressure rises, he goes to the pharmacy and buys the drug that the pharmacist will advise him - this is wrong. Such actions can lead to dangerous consequences.
Shugushev stressed that in such casesself-medication can lead to a heart attack, stroke, or provoke the development of diabetes. In no case should cardiovascular diseases be treated with the help of random drugs; the appointment should be made not by a pharmacist, but by a doctor.
And if you feel like you've really gone uppressure, and this is confirmed by a tonometer, you need to call an ambulance. And if you are not taken to the hospital, you still need to go to the doctor for further examinations.
“If you have high blood pressure and havediscomfort in the head or in the chest, then you should immediately call an ambulance. Doctors will be able to assess whether your condition requires emergency hospitalization. If you were not taken to the hospital, then you have to wait and see a doctor on the second day to undergo a comprehensive examination, that is, to see what condition your cardiovascular system is in, ”said the cardiologist.
