      Antihypertensive drugs affect different areas of blood pressure control so in most cases, these agents are combined for synergistic effect.. Ninety percent of cases of hypertension have no known cause. Therefore, the main action of antihypertensive agents is to alter the body’s regulating mechanisms (e.g. baroreceptors, renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, etc.) responsible for . Between and , remarkable advances were made in the develQpment Qf antihypertensive drugs, but since then, prQgress has been less rapid. This dQes nQt mean that no. new drugs have been intrQduced: Qn the cQntrary, their number has increased sharply; but since the advent Qf the beta-adrenergic blQckers no. new pharmacQdynamic principle.

    Drugs that increase urine flow are called diuretics. Diuretics play an important role in the management of high blood pressure. They are often used in combination with other classes of antihypertensive drugs. These drugs are ion transport inhibitors in the kidney, so a short review of renal physiology may be useful for you at this point. + +. Antihypertensive drugs are organized around a clinical indication—the need to treat a disease—rather than a receptor type. The drugs covered in this unit have a variety of mechanisms of action including diuresis, sympathoplegia, vasodilation, and antagonism of angiotensin, and many agents are available in most categories.A single renin inhibitor has recently been added to the drugs used in.

      The present volume is concerned with antihypertensive agents. The book fulfills a need, for here, in one place, concise information is provided about the current pharmacopeia of hypotensive compounds. The authors and editor make no pretense of presenting the clinical virtues of the various drugs and the indications for their use, but discuss.   Antihypertensive drugs 1. Antihypertensive Drugs S.

Many effective drugs are available. Knowledge of their antihypertensive mechanisms and sites of action allows accurate prediction of efficacy and toxicity. The rational use of these agents, alone or in combination, can lower blood pressure with minimal risk of serious toxicity in most patients.

Author(s). Handbook of Hypertension, Volume 3: Pharmacology of Antihypertensive Drugs presents the biological and clinical knowledge in the field of hypertension.

This book discusses the fundamental pharmacology of antihypertensive drugs. Antihypertensive agents are used in pregnancy either for the urgent control of severe hypertension (Table ) or for control of chronic hypertension (Table ), realizing that this latter indication may include women with a variety of hypertensive disorders that will include early preeclampsia.

Hypertensive emergency is often due to non-adherence to antihypertensive medications. Especially withdrawal from clonidine. If there is no clear trigger for the hypertensive emergency, the possibility of a secondary hypertensive emergency should be considered.

Causes include: Sympathomimetic drugs (e.g. cocaine, over-the-counter decongestants). Due to the prevalence of hypertension, however, many patients receiving therapy for other problems will also be taking antihypertensive drugs.

These drugs can also affect heart rate and vascular responses to aerobic exercise, mobility training, physical agents, and various other rehabilitation interventions. Antihypertensive drugs are used in the treatment of high blood pressure. Hypertension is not an insignificant diagnosis.

It is linked to a substantially increased risk of heart attack and stroke. Studies show, though, that even a modest reduction in blood pressure can. A combination of two antihypertensive medications should be a therapeutic option for patients with stage 2 hypertension.

One study showed a reduction in blood pressure when drugs from two different classes are combined is about five times greater than when the dose of one drug dose doubles. Antihypertensive Drugs The authors of this book look from different angles to hypertension, sharing their new knowledge and experience in the direction of deep understanding and more clarification of the disease providing an invaluable resource not only for clinicians, but also for all medical sciences students and health providers.

Antihypertensive agents include angiotensin-convertingenzyme inhibitors, angiotensin II–receptor blockers, calcium channel blockers, vasodilators, and other antihypertensive agents, including diuretic agents, ganglionic receptors, renin inhibitors, and sympathetic nervous system drugs.

The Use of Antihypertensive Medicines in Primary Health Care Settings By Marc Twagirumukiza, Jan De Maeseneer, Thierry Christiaens, Robert Vander Stichele and Luc Van Bortel Antihypertensive medications are some of the most important and commonly used drugs in medical practice.

Hypertension affects at least 50% of persons over the age of 60 and is an important cause of morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease. Antihypertensive combinations have agents that control blood pressure.

One pill or dose form contains more than one class of drug, which is indicated to treat hypertension. Having a combination of drugs in one pill may better control hypertension by improving compliance.

Always consult your healthcare provider to ensure the information. Antihypertensives are a class of drugs that are used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). Antihypertensive therapy seeks to prevent the complications of high blood pressure, such as stroke and myocardial infarction.
