High Blood Pressure Treatment Online - Service discontinued, please see your GP
What is High Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is the pressure the blood in your circulatory system exerts on the walls of the blood vessels it is transported through. High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is when this pressure level rises above healthy levels. Normal resting levels in adults are up to 120/80 mm Hg. The top number is called systolic blood pressure and represents the highest pressure when your heart beats to push blood around your body. The bottom number is called diastolic blood pressure and represents the lowest pressure when you heart relaxes between beats. High blood pressure is a reading above 140/90 mm Hg.
Blood pressure tablets will lower your blood pressure within a few days. You need to continue to take your blood pressure medicines as advised by your regular GP to keep your blood pressure controlled. This service is only for patients who have already been prescribed blood pressure tablets and wish to obtain a repeat 12-week supply of medicine without having to visit their doctor and pharmacy.
All services provided by Anytime Doctor are safe, fast and confidential. You can obtain treatment within the privacy of your home and without the inconvenience of waiting for an appointment.Read more

Medicines at a glance
All medication can cause side effects. We have only listed a few to be aware of. Details of all side effects, including rare side effects to be aware of, are listed in the patient information leaflet (PIL). When completing your medical questionnaire, it is very important that you answer the questions truthfully. This is to ensure your doctor has a full picture of your medical history before prescribing. List all medicines you are already taking, including non-prescription and herbal medicines.
This service is for patients that have previously been prescribed high blood pressure medication by their GP and wish to obtain a repeat prescription for the same medication.
There are many different high blood pressure tablets available, each slightly different in the way they work. Which type of high blood pressure medicine you have been prescribed will depend on various factors, including your age and previous medical history. If you are suffering from unwanted side effects from the tablets you have previously been prescribed, you are encouraged to discuss this further with your GP or original prescribing doctor.

What are the symptoms of high blood pressure?
Often there are no symptoms of hight blood pressure. You may not feel or notice anything different. It may get detected as part of a routine check-up with your GP. Symptoms usually only appear when your blood pressure is extremely high. Symptoms to be aware of are:
See a doctor immediately if you have any of these symptoms.
What lifestyle changes can reduce high blood pressure?
Eating a healthy diet, including the reduction of your salt and sugar intake, will help with your weight control and can also help to control your blood pressure levels. High blood pressure needs to be actively monitored and reviewed. Once a year you should have a blood test to assess your kidneys, cholesterol level and diabetes. It is also advisable to regularly check your blood pressure.
Why treat high blood pressure if there are no symptoms?
Untreated high blood pressure can lead to an enlarged heart which causes it to be less efficient. Left untreated this can lead to heart failure. Untreated high blood pressure also increases your risk of stroke and heart attack. It is therefore important to monitor and manage blood pressure.
