Treating hypertension with Tenex
Tenex (guanfacine) is a drug which is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). This drug helps reduce nerve impulses in your heart and blood vessels, which lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow. With your prescription in hand, Tenex can be found online at DoctorSolve.com, a Canadian pharmacy.
What is hypertension?
Hypertension occurs when the force of blood against your artery walls is too strong. This condition can damage your arteries, heart, and kidneys, and lead to atherosclerosis and stroke. Hypertension is often called the “silent killer” because it does not show symptoms unless it is severely high.
Several factors are known to increase blood pressure, including:
- heavy alcohol use;
- family history of high blood pressure;
- high salt intake;
- a sedentary lifestyle;
- low potassium intake;
- low calcium intake;
- and resistance to insulin.
