Conversely, lowering the blood pressure with antihypertensive agents
may also worsen neurological function by reducing cerebral perfusion.
Valsartan has been well studied in many different patient populations and is an effective antihypertensive agent
It has been suggested that a randomized controlled trial comparing specific antihypertensive agents
to one another is required to determine if one agent demonstrates superior efficacy with respect to cardiovascular outcomes in patients on hemodialysis with hypertension (Jindal et al.
5) He correctly points out that while all antihypertensive agents
effectively lower BP, a fixed-dose combination achieves additional BP reduction with fewer adverse effects often seen with high-dose monotherapy.
There have been no randomized, controlled trials of other antihypertensive agents
in pregnancy, but anecdotes and case reports suggest that other [beta]-blockers and diltiazem are effective and may be used, he said.
For men taking VIAGRA and high blood pressure medication, the incidence of treatment-related adverse events was similar to that for the VIAGRA-treated men not taking any antihypertensive agents
Many of our current antihypertensive agents
act through more roundabout mechanisms .
However, physicians value the ability to titrate drug therapy, and payers are increasingly rewarding innovation and novel modes of therapeutic action, which signals room for new antihypertensive agents
This market forecast includes erythropoietin-stimulating agents (ESAs), phosphate binders, calcium mimetics, active vitamin D analogues, antihypertensive agents
, IV irons and emerging CKD therapies for the CKD non-dialysis and dialysis patient populations.
The investigators found no such association between breast cancer and any of the other commonly used antihypertensive agents
, even if they were taken for long durations.
A number of cholesterol-lowering or antihypertensive agents
like Angiotensin antagonists, for example, block production of angiotensin II, which constricts blood vessels and increases IL-6 production.
Complementary combinations of antihypertensive agents
provide an efficient and effective approach to hypertension management.
in general reduced the risk for Alzheimer's disease (AD), but the potassium-sparing diuretics were particularly beneficial, said Dr.
Combining low-dose thiazide diuretics with most classes of antihypertensive agents
increases efficacy and adds little toxicity.
Therefore, it is important for the practicing neuroscience nurse to have a working knowledge of the role of cerebral autoregulation and available antihypertensive agents
