The role of ACE inhibitors in the management of hypertension

Journal Article


Abstract


  • ACE inhibitors have antihypertensive efficacy similar to that of thiazides, β-blockers and calcium antagonists. They are simple to prescribe and to take, and are relatively free from subjective side-effects apart from persistent dry cough. There are few specific concerns about safety, but experience of long-term use is still relatively limited. They are valuable additional or alternative antihypertensive drugs when standard therapy is contraindicated or fails to control blood pressure.
