Is there a first aid for hypertension?
My boyfriend and I need to know because we are going to “babysit” our friend because of hypertension. How do we know if his blood pressure is going up without the use of a sphygmomanometer? What do we have to do to help him lower his blood pressure fast?

In case of a Hypertensive Emergency, (when the BP shoots up >200mm), you can try sublingual Nifedipine (marketed as ADALAT). One capsule has to be chewed and the fluid kept in the mouth. The drug acts by absorption through the buccal mucosa bypassing the portal circulation. Hence the effects are immediate.

There is this medicine for hypertension that is OTC (over the counter) it’s generic name is Metoprolol Tartrate. Technically it’s a muscle relaxant. and basically, heart is a muscle so this med helps with high BP and is given by doctors to prevent hypertension. =)
