Pharmacologic and Other Treatments for Hypertension

Medications to treat high blood pressure includes Thiazide diuretics, Beta blockers, Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors,  Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs),  Calcium channel blockers and Renin inhibitors. Additional medication sometimes used to treat high blood pressure comprises Alpha blockers, Alpha-beta blockers, Central-acting agents, Vasodilators and Aldosterone antagonists.

No matter what medications a doctor prescribes to treat high blood pressure, lifestyle changes are required to lower blood pressure. Eating a healthier diet with less, exercising regularly, quitting smoking, limiting the amount of alcohol, maintaining a healthy weight or losing weight must be followed up to control high blood pressure.

Cardiac arrhythmia, also known as cardiac dysrhythmia or irregular heartbeat, is a group of conditions in which the heartbeat is irregular, too fast, or too slow. A heartbeat that is too fast - above 100 beats per minute in adults - is called tachycardia and a heartbeat that is too slow - below 60 beats per minute - is called bradycardia. Hypertensive crisis is a severe increase in blood pressure that can lead to a stroke. Extremely high blood pressure — a top number (systolic pressure) of 180 millimetres of mercury (mm Hg) or higher or a bottom number (diastolic pressure) of 120 mm Hg or higher — damages blood vessels. Ocular hypertension is a clinical term describing the presence of elevated intraocular pressure in the absence of optic nerve damage or visual field loss. The evaluation of patients with hypertension should be directed toward confirming true treatment resistance; identification of causes contributing to treatment resistance, including secondary causes of hypertension; and documentation of target-organ damage. Accurate assessment of treatment adherence and use of good blood pressure measurement technique is required to exclude pseudo resistance.
