(heart beat) – The death of my brother, it was sudden, and at the time we did not
realize that he was not complaint with his medications. – We had one of our brothers
pass away from a heart attack. So really able to see close
up and personal the effects of heart disease, heart attacks,
and what happens, perhaps, when you don’t pay
attention to your diagnosis and take your medicine as you should. I think that when you have
hypertension it’s important to take your medicine
everyday, as it is prescribed. He ran out of medication, and so he wasn’t taking the medication that
he knew he should be taking, because he was just too busy. – The initial prescription I
was taking had some dangerous side effects, so as any
very intelligent person I decided to stop taking it. (laughter) – They are not willing to
continue to take that medication, because of that main side effect. But there are medications
that really help control your high blood pressure that do not have that particular side effect. Don’t allow your significant
other, your spouse to stop taking the medication
and not go to the doctor to see what he can do to fix that. – The students that we
utilize for the program were pharmacy students, and

hypertension management. During our training we
did talk to them about what challenges people may
face in trying to remember to take their meds everyday. Encouraging their participants
to talk to their physicians if they had any issues, or talk
to their pharmacist if they had any issues with the
medications that they were on. – Some even knew that
they were hypertensive, had medication that they were
on, but because of the program they’ve learned how to
reduce those numbers, and actually have been taken
off of some of the medicines.
