How high does your blood pressure have to be to have a heart attack?

User Avatar

Asked by SalmaLorna

Although high blood pressure is a very important contributing problem or risk factor for heart attacks, there is no specific blood pressure that is required to have a heart attack. If there is a blockage of a blood vessel that supplies blood to the heart, due to either a fatty deposit of cholesterol, or a blood clot, a heart attack will result.

What causes mini strokes?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

With my limited knowledge (both parents had TIA's and I work in the medical field), there are numerous things that can cause TIA's. When my father had his first one, they said it was a combination of a lack of Vitamin B-12 and the fact that his carotid artery has a 70% plaque build up. When my mother had hers a few months ago, they don't really know. The plaque build up that she has is not enough to cause the stroke (per her cardiologist) but the ran all kinds of tests and have decided that even though she has minimal plaque build up that are going to go ahead and do what my parents loving call the "roter-rooter" surgery. If you have a medical dictionary (or you can go to webMD, or just google TIA's) you can look up the technical description.

Is it safe to take Jadera weight loss pills if you also take high blood pressure medicine?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It is best to take a list of ingredients to your doctor and let him compare it to the ingredients in your high blood pressure medication. Jadera is an appetite suppressant and if taken more than the recommended dosage can cause an accelerated heart rate which would affect your blood pressure. I have taken it for more than a year without any issues or concerns but my friend took two capsules at one time instead of the recommended dosage of one capsule and felt jittery.

Important_Notice:_Drug_Interactions">Important Notice:Drug Interactions

If you are currently taking any drugs or supplements that affect blood pressure (especially those that lower it), always consult you doctor to ensure you aren't do anything acutely harmful to your body, or slowly deteriorating your liver.

Although not meant to be taken as conclusive advice/evidence (as stated on Drugs.com's disclaimer), Drugs.com can offer you some insight on the the known pharmacological reactions between a list of various drugs and chemicals (See "interactions" section). Low doses are strongly advised if you decide to take multiple substances, although I strongly discourage this experimentation unless you know what you have is labelled properly, they dont potentiate certain fatal synmptoms liek respiratory depression.

It is important that you follow the advice of health officials which is: Yes [well it's not a "yes, go and drink" more of an assurance that if you "drink moderately; you will likely have a good time and not blackout" YMMV, always do a small amount when testing something new test anything new while under the residual effects of the previously injested chemical.
