¿Qué es ${drug_name}?

Hypertension, or high blood pressure, occurs when the pressure in the arteries is too high. This in turn makes it more difficult for the heart to pump blood throughout the body. There may be no symptoms, but in severe cases headache, lightheadedness, nausea or vomiting, and nosebleeds may occur.

Treatment for hypertension includes diet and exercise, and taking medicine. Common drug classes prescribed to treat hypertension are beta blockers, ace inhibitors, calcium channel blockers, ARBs, loop diuretics, thiazide diuretics, central alpha agonists, aldosterone antagonists, arteriorlar vasodilators, catecholamine depletors, ACE inhibitor / calcium channel blocker combinations, ACE inhibitor / thiazide diuretic combinations, aldosterone antagonist / thiazide diuretic combinations, ARB / thiazide diuretic combinations, ARB / thiazide-like combinations, arteriolar vasodilator / thiazide diuretic combinations, and beta agonist / thiazide diuretic combinations.
