Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a very common medical condition. According to the guideline published by American College of Cardiology, a patient is hypertensive when its clinical blood pressure is ≥130mmHg and ≥80mmHg. Hypertension is a risk factor of many cardiovascular diseases e.g. coronary heart disease, heart failure and chronic kidney disease. It should thus be adequately controlled.

Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) / Angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs)
ACEI and ARB are considered as the first-line initial treatment for most patients, especially with kidney disease characterized by proteinuria. About half of the patients taking ACEI may suffer from dry cough, while ARBs are not linked to dry cough. Generally, ACEI and ARB should not be used concomitantly.

Calcium channel blockers (CCBs)
Dihydropyridine calcium channel blockers (e.g. Amlodipine, Felodipine) are another class of antihypertensive. They work mainly by dilating blood vessels. The most common side effect of CCBs is ankle swelling.

Diuretics work by removing excess fluid in the body through urine to reduce blood volume. The most common side effect is urinary frequency. Therefore, they should be avoided in patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia or overactive bladder.
