[Warning] Blood Pressure Patients Are Overdosing on Meds?!?
If you have high blood pressure, you’ve probably been told that it’s a “silent killer.”
One that can lead to strokes, dementia, kidney disease, and more.
So, you pop those blood pressure meds every day, trying to get the problem under control.
But a shocking new study is showing that you’re probably getting MUCH larger doses than you need, all while Big Pharma makes a fortune.
And the results aren’t just dangerous… they could be deadly.
The drug companies have been pushing for lower and lower blood pressure guidelines for years… all to get as many people on drugs as possible.
And, boy, did it ever work. Nearly one-third of adults have now been diagnosed with high blood pressure.
But if you’re one of the millions of Americans on blood pressure meds, there’s an ugly secret Big Pharma doesn’t want you to know.
There’s a very good chance you’re being overdosed.
A brand new study from the University of New South Wales has just proven that smaller doses of these drugs are just as effective as the “standard” dose… and with far fewer side effects!
Researchers analyzed the data from 42 clinical trials involving more than 20,000 patients with high blood pressure.
The drugs tested were: ACE inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers, beta blockers, calcium channel blocker, and thiazides.
After reviewing the results of all patients, the team found that millions of people worldwide are needlessly suffering.
Taking smaller doses worked just as well and led to fewer complications.
That’s HUGE news, because these meds have been linked to heart problems, severe anemia, and everything from fatigue to severe constipation.
So why on Earth are drug companies giving us ridiculously high doses of these potentially dangerous pills?
It’s all about the money.
First, as you may have learned yourself, these meds don’t work very well. Only about a third of people with high blood pressure ever really get it under control.
So Big Pharma throws higher doses at the problem… or they want you to start taking multiple drugs, hoping something works.
Plus, they make a fortune when you end up on other meds to control the side effects from your blood pressure pills.
Quite a racket, huh?
Of course, there are simple lifestyle adjustments that can help manage high blood pressure. Supplements like magnesium and garlic have been shown to support healthy blood pressure.
In the meantime, if you or someone you love is taking prescription drugs to treat high blood pressure, talk to your doc about trying lower doses and seeing if you can get the same results with fewer side effects.
