Selective alpha 1-adrenoreceptor blockers in the treatment of hypertension: should we be using them more?

, : Selective alpha 1-adrenoreceptor blockers in the treatment of hypertension: should we be using them more?. Clinical Autonomic Research 1(3): 251-258

It has become apparent in recent years that in the treatment of essential hypertension, reduction of blood pressure alone is not sufficient to reduce significantly the morbidity and mortality from ischaemic heart disease. Since the emergence of a multifactorial approach to the prevention of cardiovascular disease, the potential interaction between antihypertensive therapy and metabolic factors, such as control of blood glucose and lipid levels, has become an important consideration. Abnormal function of the sympathetic nervous system may contribute to both the initiation, or maintenance, of hypertension and the associated metabolic disturbances. The new generation of selective alpha 1-adrenoreceptor blockers, besides lowering blood pressure, appear to have favourable effects on lipid and glucose metabolism. The use of these drugs and their place in the treatment of hypertension are discussed.
