Hello and good evening
Thank you for your question

Based on your question, I understand that you are worry about your problem. I will try to help you.

For your information, every drugs that was prescribed by the doctors are based on particular indication. Your medical history need to be taken and the doctor need to do a thorough physical examination before they can make a conclusion about your problem. Then they will prescribe you the medication and you need to consume it according to the doctor’s instruction as every drugs have their own side effects.

For now, you can try to practice;

  1. Reducing the intake of salty food in your daily diet
  2. Eat a healthy and nutritious food
  3. Change your lifestyle and always have a time for exercise
  4. Stop smoking if you are a smoker

So, before taking any medications, I advice you to refer to a doctor first to get an exact information. You can also have an online consultation with our doctors to get more information and further treatments.

I hope this answer will help you. Thank you.
