Resistant hypertension is when your blood pressure remains high or uncontrolled despite medication. Hypertension is a significant health problem in and of itself. It’s even more frustrating when taking multiple medicines but still doesn’t feel better.

If you are a person with resistant hypertension:
∙ Although if you take three blood pressure-lowering medicines, including a diuretic, your blood pressure stays high (above 130/80 mmHg) (water pill).
∙ ‘You take four or more medicines to control your high blood pressure.
Also, you need to be aware of the underlying condition that causes an increase in high blood pressure.

1. Old age
2. Have chronic kidney disease

∙ Obesity, excessive alcohol use, or other drugs that affect blood pressure.
