Individualize Treatment for Resistant Hypertension
About 1 in 8 patients with high BP have resistant hypertension.
These patients need more than 3 drugs, including a diuretic, to control chronically high BP. Use a hospital admission to ensure they're on the most effective regimen.
Evaluate contributing factors. Verify med history...and assess adherence, which is an issue in up to 80% of these patients.
