Now or never: optimal antihypertensive therapy in the elderly.
Prev Cardiol 2008; 11(4):201-9PC

Abstract

Hypertension control rates in the elderly, particularly for systolic hypertension, are poor and lower than control rates in other age groups. Older patients often require treatment with specific antihypertensive drugs because of concomitant conditions and usually need > or =2 drugs to control blood pressure. Combining drugs with complementary mechanisms of action may improve both blood pressure control and the tolerability of individual drugs. A number of fixed-dose combinations have shown efficacy in older patients and in stage 2 hypertension, including various combinations involving diuretics and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors or angiotensin II receptor blockers.
