Medicines for high blood pressure

Medicines for high blood pressure


The medicines most commonly used to treat high blood pressure are ACE inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers, calcium channel blockers and thiazide diuretics.

However, some people may not be able to take some of these medicines, or their blood pressures may be not lowered enough by using just these medicines.

If this is true for you, you may be asked to try a non-standard medicine. These medicines are not commonly used, but they can be very effective for some people.
