Duromine with High Blood Pressure

Last updated on May 23rd, 2018

As an effective weight loss medication, Duromine is popular all around the world and highly demanded. This medication is appreciated for its potent and, at the same time, mild effect on the body.

Containing Phentermine as an active component, Duromine is commonly prescribed to obese people with related health conditions, including heart problems and hypertension.

Obesity is one of the main factors contributing to occurrence of hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, obese people are advised to gradually reduce weight to control high blood pressure and reduce the burden on the heart.

For this purpose, Duromine is prescribed to help the obese person reduce body weight that will lead to:

  • improvement of the cardiovascular system;
  • normalization of high blood pressure.

Even an insignificant weight loss helps reduce cardiovascular risk and prevent development of coronary artery atherosclerosis (a disease that disrupts rhythm of the heart).

Despite the fact that Duromine is recommended for severely obese people with related health issues, this weight loss medication should be taken with caution in patients:

with mild hypertension (high blood pressure)

receiving anti-hypertensive agents

with established coronary artery disease

Duromine is differently tolerated by obese patients with cardiovascular risk. Therefore, blood pressure level and heart rate indicators need to be regularly controlled when using this drug.

Patients with an increased risk of developing cardiovascular diseases should use Duromine under the supervision of an experienced physician. If the patient begin to experience shortness of breath, an increased heart rate or chest pain during the treatment, Duromine use should be discontinued and consult a cardiologist.
