The American Academy of Pediatrics says it would be premature to recommend that children start taking blood pressure medication as they get older.
The American Heart Association has also said that children shouldn’t get blood pressure medications unless they’re at high risk of heart disease or stroke.
Now, two prominent pediatricians are suggesting that parents take blood pressure pills to help lower their blood pressure.
Dr. Peter DeGroot, a pediatrician and researcher at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, told CNN that he’s not sure that the risk of complications from high blood pressure is worth the potential benefit of reducing the risk.
DeGroots has been a member of the Academy of Pediatricians for 20 years.
He said he doesn’t know enough to say for certain that the medication is safe.
DeGroot also said he would be cautious about recommending a blood pressure pill until more research is done.
He suggested parents talk with their pediatricians about the risks and benefits of taking the medication, as well as what they need to know about it and how they should take it.
DeGs opinion of the pill was also shared by pediatrician Dr. Karen Hovland, who wrote a commentary in the American Journal of Pediatrics last year.
She also shared her own thoughts about how to treat high bloodpressure.
Hovland said that there’s no evidence that blood pressure can be reduced by taking the blood pressures medication.
Instead, she recommended that parents consider the risks, including the fact that they may not always know what they’re getting themselves into when they decide to take a medication.
In her opinion, the American Academy does not recommend taking the drug until more studies are done to determine whether it can be safe and effective.HOVLAND: The evidence is not conclusive, and it’s not clear what is the optimal dose.
She added that she would be very cautious about taking the pill until all the studies are complete.
DeGs position is in line with that of other experts in the field.
In a follow-up statement to CNN, DeGrows doctor said that parents should not start taking the medicine until they are able to be confident that the medications is safe and that they can do it safely.
