Antihypertensive drugs are a class of medication used to lower high blood pressure. High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a common condition that can lead to serious health problems such as heart disease, stroke, and kidney failure. Antihypertensive drugs work by relaxing blood vessels and reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the walls of the blood vessels. There are several types of antihypertensive drugs, including diuretics, beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs), and calcium channel blockers. These drugs can be used alone or in combination to effectively control high blood pressure. The choice of drug depends on the individual patient’s condition and medical history. Antihypertensive drugs are generally safe when used as prescribed, but they can have side effects such as dizziness, fatigue, and dry mouth. Regular monitoring of blood pressure and medication adjustments may be necessary to ensure optimal treatment. Overall, antihypertensive drugs are an important tool in managing hypertension and reducing the risk of serious health complications.
