Almost half of American adults have high blood pressure, and it's even more prevalent among the Black population. Uncontrolled HBP can lead to heart attacks, stroke, and other health complications.

To help control blood pressure at home, make sure to eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. It's also important to check your medicine cabinet. Some over the counter pain relievers can increase blood pressure or interfere with blood pressure medications.

Tylenol is safe and effective for patients with high blood pressure.
