Uncontrolled Hypertension

60 years female, who had reported to me with generalised fatigue and uncontrolled sugar and BP HBAIC - 9.7 S.Cr - 0.7 LDL 130 K+ - 4.5 She was already taking Telista AM 80 so I changed and put her on combination of Telmisartan 40 + CH 12.5 + Cilnidipine 10, I also added Cardivas 3.125 BD to the treatment Her sugars are better now, FBS 90 and PPBS 140 Her Morning BP is in the range of 150-160/80-95 At my clinic today it is 186/111 Management Which should be the next drug to add? Moxonidine or Spironolactone


Better keep antihypertensives in divided doses Telmisartan+chlorthalidone in morning Tab metaprolol 50mg at bed time Rest you can continue keep followup

Since how long he is hypertensive.? Rule out secondary hypertension . Do RFT including s Na + K+ , Serum Renin , TFT

Sir, TFT, NA, K all are normal

Get a baseline ecg & echo for left ventricle status & cardiac status, rule out obstructive sleep apnea, BMI , look for renal or endocrine cause also . Atorvas & ecosporin to be added with ongoing anti hypertension medication

In absence of secondary cause,,, I think centrally acting AHT like Prazocin can help to control BP..

I am agree with@Dr. Shivraj Agarwal Sir.

Change her bp medicine To Tab. Met -xl 50 1-0-1/2 Tab. Telsartan 40 1-0-0 Tab. Ecosprin 75 mg 1-0-0 Tab. Stator 10 mg 0-1-0
