Frequently Asked Questions:
Why is it important to treat high blood pressure (hypertension)?
While having hypertension usually does not cause any noticeable symptoms, leaving high blood pressure untreated can lead to:
- Heart Attacks
- Heart Failure
- Kidney Failure
Hypertension is defined as having a blood pressure above 130/80. That being said, it is important to understand that prescription blood pressure treatment should only be started if your your baseline blood pressure is abnormal. Single measurements that are abnormal are not enough to establish the diagnosis. This is often true when these measurements are based on measurements at the doctors office, where the patient might be nervous (‘white coat syndrome’). It is therefore important to measure your blood pressure in a relaxing environment, like your home using a home blood pressure cuff, or at a pharmacy. Position your arm in a way that the blood pressure cuff is roughly at the level of your heart.
How much does it cost to get a prescription?
What is the cost of the medication at the pharmacy?
We understand that medication expenses are a major concern for a lot of our patients. Therefore our doctors usually prescribe the generic version of the high blood pressure medication (unless otherwise requested) and we send a special coupon code directly to the pharmacy to help you save money. You may also compare the approximate cost of the medication here and download your own coupon code.
How long does it take until I can pick up the prescription from my pharmacy?
The pharmacy will receive the e-prescription almost instantly at the time of the consultation. Depending on the pharmacy you will be able to pick up your prescription shortly after, usually in about 30-45 minutes after the consultation.
What does the process look like to get a prescription through QuickMD?
The process is quick, simple and 100% private and confidential. It only takes a few minutes for your pharmacy to get the prescription: Start by creating an account, then choose if you want to be called by the doctor or if prefer a video or chat consultation. You can also choose to see a doctor right away (when available) or choose a time in the future that best fits your schedule (if you choose to be called, no need to log back in online at the time of the appointment). The doctor will ask you a few questions and then send your prescription electronically to your pharmacy of choice. If we cannot help you, your visit is free.
