    Understanding High Blood Pressure Medication

    Hi Everyone,

    We are design students from the University of Pennsylvania and are trying to improve Medication Adherence as part of our thesis. We'd love to talk to people taking medication for high blood pressure and learn the problems they encounter and how the manage these.

    Would you like to help us out?

    It would be great if we can hear from both people having trouble and people
    doing a great job following their prescriptions. We're not looking for a certain level or state of the problem, whoever is taking medication to control their blood pressure will be very helpful to our research.

    If you are interested, please write us an e-mail, you don't have to commit to anything at this point. We would send you more information about the interview and answer all questions you might have before we start anything.

    We will make sure your personal information is safe.

    Thank you!

    I just saw your post and would be happy to help in a study but I don't live in your area,I live in Texas. If I can still be of help then please feel free to contact me. I will be away from a computer for about a week and a half, going in for an Aorta Bi-Femoral Bypass surgery on the 4th of Dec at the V.A. Hosp. in Houston Texas.
