"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."
- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 - 1860), German philosopher

Several medications are available to treat hypertension.

Some of the most commonly prescribed medications include:

Diuretics

Diuretics help the kidneys get rid of sodium and water from the body. This decreases the volume of blood in the body and lowers blood pressure.

There are three types of diuretics: thiazide , loop, and potassium-sparing.

Other medications

Other medications used to treat hypertension include:

1. Beta blockers -- slow down the heart rate and reduce stress hormones in the body .

Examples:

  • Atenolol ( Tenormin )
  • Bisoprolol ( Zebeta )
  • Metoprolol ( Lopressor , Toprol XL)
  • Nadolol ( Corgard )
  • Timolol ( Blocadren )
  • Nebivolol ( Bystolic )

2. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors -- block the chemical angiotensin from forming in the body, helping prevent blood vessels from narrowing.

ACE inhibitors include:

  • Captopril ( Capoten )
  • Benazepril ( Lotensin )
  • Enalapril ( Vasotec )
  • Lisinopril ( Prinivil , Zestril )
  • Fosinopril ( Monopril )
  • Ramipril ( Altace )
  • Perindopril ( Aceon )
  • Quinapril ( Accupril )
  • Moexipril ( Univasc )
  • Trandolapril ( Mavik )

3. Calcium-channel blockers -- relax blood vessels and lower blood pressure by blocking calcium from entering heart cells and arteries.

Examples:

  • Amlodipine ( Norvasc )
  • Bepridil ( Vascor )
  • Diltiazem ( Cardizem )
  • Felodipine ( Plendil )
  • Nifedipine ( Adalat , Procardia )
  • Nicardipine ( Cardene )
  • Verapamil ( Calan , Isoptin )

4. Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) -- block the effects of the chemical angiotensin in the body, lowering blood pressure.

These drugs include:

  • Candesartan ( Atacand )
  • Eprosartan ( Tevetan )
  • Irbesartan ( Avapro )
  • Losartan ( Cozaar )
