High Blood Pressure Medicines Show Promise For Treating Heart Disease
Date:10/19/2009

nd that combined treatment does not show any benefit over an ACE inhibitor alone and that risks include fainting, diarrhea, low blood pressure and kidney problems.

The report found that existing studies provide few data on the medications' benefits or harms in specific populations such as people of different genders, ethnicity, diabetic status or those who have or don't have high blood pressure.

AHRQ's new report, Comparative Effectiveness of Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors or Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers Added to Standard Medical Therapy for Treating Stable Ischemic Heart Disease, is the newest research review from the Agency's Effective Health Care Program. That program, authorized by the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act, represents an important federal effort to compare alternative treatments for health conditions and make the findings public. The program is intended to help patients, doctors, nurses, pharmacists and others choose the most effective treatments. The new report's findings will soon be available in plain-language summary guides for patients, clinicians and policymakers. Summary guides on numerous clinical topics, as well as other information and background on the Effective Health Care Program, can be found at www.effectivehealthcare.ahrq.gov.
