American Heart Month

It’s February – American Heart Month – a time when the nation spotlights heart disease, the No. 1 killer of Americans. During American Heart Month, the AHA and other organizations reinforce the importance of heart health, the need for more research and efforts to ensure that millions of people live longer and healthier. With the COVID-19 pandemic and people being in lockdown, more people have engaged in unhealthy lifestyle behaviors, such as eating poorly, drinking more alcohol, and limiting physical activity, which can contribute to heart disease. 

In most cases, heart disease is preventable when people adopt a healthy lifestyle, which includes not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, controlling blood sugar and cholesterol, treating high blood pressure, getting at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity a week, and getting regular checkups. 

Facts about Hypertension: 

Blood pressure is the pressure of blood pushing against walls of your arteries. Arteries carry blood from your heart to other parts of the body. Blood pressure normally rises and falls throughout the day, but it can damage your heart and cause health problems if it stays high for a long time. Hypertension, also called high blood pressure, is blood pressure that is higher than normal. 

Facts About Hypertension in the United States: 

In 2017, the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association published new guidelines for hypertension management and defined high hypertension as a blood pressure at or above 130/80 mm Hg. Stage 2 hypertension is defined as a blood pressure at or above 140/90 mm Hg. 1 

Blood Pressure Category Systolic Blood Pressure  Diastolic Blood Pressure 
  Normal <120 mm Hg and   <80 mm Hg 
  Elevated 120-129 mm Hg and   <80 mm Hg 
Hypertension 
  Stage 1 130-139 mm Hg or    80-89 mm Hg 
  Stage 2 ≥140 mm Hg or   ≥90 mm Hg

Take With Caution: Prescription Drug Safety Tips To Keep In Mind

It could only be considered a sad case of irony if the prescription drugs that you take to support your health fell in the hands of the wrong person — or pet — and inflicted harm onto them. With vast advancements in medical technology and pharmaceutical drug breakthroughs in the last several decades, we’re able to have medicine that truly works wonders for the human health. From helping cure various forms of cancer to mitigating allergic reactions and even helping fight against less life-threatening conditions like acne, the miracle of modern medicine is truly…well, a miracle when you really sit down and give it some thought.

Know What You’re Taking and Why You’re Taking It

It’s important to trust your doctor, but it’s even more important to ask questions and really understand what’s going on with your body and why you need to take a certain prescription medication. Certain pharmaceutical drugs are optional or taken for cosmetic purposes, while others are completely necessary and vitally important. It is the inherent legal responsibility for your doctor or healthcare provider to be as informative as transparent as possible when it comes to prescribing any sort of pharmaceutical drug.

 

This is also a great time to address any possible concerns that you have. Remember, it’s your body, and you’re taking this medication for the sake of your health. Be as clear and thorough as possible!

 

NEVER Share Your Medication Under Any Circumstances

Plain and simple, no matter the situation that arises, do not give out or administer your medicine to anyone else but yourself. Even if you have a friend or family member who happens to have the exact same prescription, your doctors could have prescribed the same drug but in different dosages. Not only that, but one prescription could be generic whereas the other is name brand, potentially causing slightly different effects in the individual. Sharing prescription drugs is, of course, illegal, but you could also put your health or the health of others at serious risk. That’s nothing to joke or mess around about.

 

Expired Medication? Skip It and Renew It

Medications that are either no longer needed or are expired should be disposed of properly. While a slightly expired prescription isn’t necessarily going to put your life at risk, it’s just safer to steer clear of a medication that is expired. Flushing your old medications down the toilet used to be a recommended practice (and there’s actually a good amount of controversy surrounding this disposal method), but generally speaking, there should be a legitimate medication disposal center near you that will take care of it in a safe, proper and legal manner.

 

Keep Your Medication(s) Out Of Reach

If your cat, dog or children can access your medication, you’re storing it incorrectly. Even though medication bottles come with child-resistant tops as a standard part of the design, that doesn’t mean they can’t somehow access it or that your curious dog won’t just chew through the plastic. Prescription medications, again, are solely intended for who’s on the actual prescription. Keep your medications properly sealed and up high in cabinets (like a medicine cabinet) that make it extremely difficult, if not impossible, for pets or children to access.

If There’s a Dosing Device, Use It

Not all forms of prescription medication come in simple pill or tablet form. Many medications are in liquid form, and thus, present dosing challenges. Fortunately, these types of prescriptions also come with a dosing device to make sure that you’re taking the exact amount (typically in milliliters) that you should be taking. Considering using a teaspoon or a standard kitchen spoon to help you throw your medication back? Even if you have an advanced form of conventional cough syrup, do not do this. These crude measurement tools will not measure out the same as the dosing device that you originally received with your prescription medication.

 

If you have any questions about properly administering your dosages, contact your doctor or healthcare provider before trying to do it yourself.

Keep The National Poison Help Number Accessible

It’s a grim thought, but accidents happen. If you’ve somehow consumed more of your medication than you should have, get help immediately. The toll-free poison help number (1-800-222-1222) should be a number that you have saved on your phone (and of course, a number that you never hope to ever call). What’s also important to keep in mind is that this number is not just for poison emergencies — this is also a legitimate and credible source to ask questions about your medication in terms of how to take it, how to administer it to a loved one, and so forth.

2018: A World of Conveniences

A decade ago, if you told someone that you were flying out for a trip, taking an Uber to get to your Airbnb that you paid for with Venmo, they would have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about. Granted, these major tech companies were quite young ten years ago, but our point is that these technological conveniences have become standard nowadays. With the simple touch of a button or a click of a mouse, we have a network of seemingly limitless information right at our fingertips – literally! As society continues to develop and innovate itself, more and more services are becoming digitized.

The Rise Of Mobile Technology

pexels-photo-356056.jpeg

As computers began to grow more powerful and compact, we eventually had laptops, giving us the ability to work on-the-go. Naturally, this increased productivity for companies around the world. With pocket-sized smartphones and portable tablets soon to follow, our access to information and services only became more convenient. These days, it almost seems difficult to successfully participate in society without using technology. After all, how are you reading this right now?

Apps, Apps, Apps

Applications and computer programs have, of course, existed for a long time. But it wasn’t until July of 2008 that technology giant Apple released their own App Store, forever revolutionizing the way we communicate, exchange goods and services, and…well, do anything, really. While early App Store patrons paid a good $10 just to download Super Monkey Ball (accelerometer technology was cutting-edge back then!), nearly a decade of refinement and development have yielded literally millions of apps to choose from. Of course, many of these apps are completely free, offering useful services that people engage with on a daily basis.

Information, Instantly

Has easy access to information perpetuated an impatient and demanding society? Perhaps, but our online pharmacy experts aren’t here to discuss technology’s ramifications on human psychology. With the help of this powerful technology, GoGoMeds is proud to help countless people save money on prescription medication from the comfort of home. Why drive to the pharmacy when your prescriptions can be delivered straight to your door? View and compare prescription drug prices and more on the best online pharmacy today.
