The Community Pharmacist: Blood Pressure, Medication Roundup (audio)

February 09, 2016 | Pamela Youngberg Dickson

Last week, in honor of American Heart Health month, we began our audio series on blood pressure and covered some of the basics on the numbers and risks to help your patients understand the role that lifestyle plays in vascular health. This week, tune in—and invite your patients to do the same—to “Blood Pressure: Medication Roundup” with Minnesota pharmacist Jessica Astrup Ehret on her weekly radio show, “Community Pharmacist Conversations.” You’ll learn:

  • How a wide range of blood pressure medications work;
  • Potential side-effects for individual drug protocols; and
  • Some ideas to improve adherence for blood pressure patients.
