Blood Pressure Pill Combo More Effective Than Diuretics
Date:12/3/2008

ty of Michigan Medical School and a member of the U-M Cardiovascular Center, said in a university news release.

"The significant reduction in cardiovascular events we observed in patients will, I hope, show physicians that earlier use of a combination medicine, especially with amlodipine, may be in the best interest of the patients," Jamerson said.

As many as 73 million Americans have high blood pressure, which increases the risk of stroke, heart attack, heart failure and other health problems. Drugs can help control blood pressure, but many patients have trouble taking the multiple medications they need, which is why combination pills were developed, according to background information in the news release about the study.
