Please suggest Is it ok to keep on taking bp tablets even if hyper tension of 150/90 is due to constipation?

It's a myth that hypertension is caused due to constipation. Kindly read about hypertension (especially essential hypertension) from the internet and know the facts. One can take all the precautions and go for regular health check up and do some basic tests to monitor BP and overall health.

Constipation is not a cause of Hypertension. Hypertensive patients may experience constipation due to various reasons.

Dear Lybrateuser, - Hypertension is usually not due to constipation, if your treating physician has prescribed medication after investigation & examination then do not stop medication without his advise, also take dietary precautions & if required medication for constipation.
