A simplified mechanistic algorithm for treating resistant hypertension: efficacy in a retrospective study
The Journal of Clinical Hypertension, 05/04/2012Mann SJ et al.
The most frequent medication adjustments were addition of a potassium–sparing diuretic in 16 (67%), doxazosin in 9 (37.5%), and replacing a metabolized with a nonmetabolized β–blocker in 6 (25%). The authors conclude that treatment based on this algorithm can both simplify and improve the management of resistant hypertension and merits further evaluation in prospective studies.
