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 . Thirty chapters are given to concise, authoritative, and well-referenced reviews of the basic and clinical pharmacology of the main antihypertensive drugs used in North America and abroad. Discussions of clinical use are brief and many of .

Rational prescribing informed by clinical pharmacology is essential if the right drug is to be administered to the right patient, at the right time, and for the right : Faiez Zannad. 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.

Pharmacology is a broad discipline encompassing every aspect of the study of drugs, including their discovery and development and the testing of their action in the body.
This book aims to explain how scientists unravel the many different ways medicines work in the body and how this information guides the hunt for drugs of the future.

Abstract. Although drug treatment of hypertension is associated with improved survival and decreased vascular complications, drug compliance is a major problem in the control of hypertension. 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.
Some antihypertensive drugs, most notably beta-blockers, depress heart rate and contractility (this decreases stroke volume) by blocking the influence of sympathetic nerves on the heart.
Calcium-channel blockers, especially those (non-dihydropyridines) that are more cardioselective.Drug therapy for essential hypertension is now firmly established.
Agents presently available, if used wisely, are capable of controlling hypertension in almost every patient requiring such treatment. There are certain important factors which must be carefully evaluated before patients are started on long‐term antihypertensive therapy.A thorough understanding of the pharmacology (mechanism, pharmacokinetics, adverse effects and drug interactions, clinical use) of antihypertensive agents is an essential foundation for nursing practice in women’s by: 4.
