Doctor and TV presenter Alexander Myasnikov on the air of the TV channel "Russia 1" spoke about the medicine that should be removed from the home medicine cabinet. Reported by RIA Novosti.
According to him, misuse of the drug to lower blood pressure can lead to a heart attack.
“Your blood pressure has risen, and everyone tells you: take this and that under your tongue. You know the name of these drugs very well. You take, and the pressure drops. And then - a heart attack. And you think it happened from increased blood pressure,”the doctor explained.
Myasnikov noted that the independent use of such drugs is prohibited throughout the world. They can dramatically lower blood pressure, leading to heart attack, stroke, and acute kidney failure. The doctor advised to remove such drugs from the home medicine cabinet.
Earlier in February, Dr. Myasnikov explained how dangerous it is to substitute fructose for sugar. The doctor noted that similar recommendations were given by scientists in the United States, but soon they recorded an increase in the level of obesity and diabetes. Myasnikov explained that fructose leads to an increase in blood sugar levels.
