Advantages and disadvantages of combined drug treatment

  • A. N. Brest


Although mild hypertension can usually be controlled by single antihypertensive drug therapy, most cases of moderate or severe blood-pressure elevation require double or triple drug regimens. The successful application of combined drug regimens demands a complete understanding of the clinical pharmacology of the drugs involved. Inherent in this understanding is full recognition of the rationale, as well as of the advantages and disadvantages of combined antihypertensive drug therapy.
