Blood pressure lowering efficacy of reserpine for primary hypertension
John Wiley & Sons, Ltd, October 2009
Shamon, Sandy D, Perez, Marco I
Many antihypertensive agents exist today for the treatment of primary hypertension (systolic blood pressure >/=140 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure >/=90 mmHg). Randomised controlled trials have been carried out to investigate the evidence for these agents.There is, for example, strong RCT evidence that thiazides reduce mortality and morbidity. Reserpine has been used as a second-line therapy in some of those trials. However, the dose-related blood pressure reduction with this agent is not known.
