Antihypertensive effects on quality of life make a difference

The effects of antihypertensive drugs on quality of life (QOL) are likely to be the result of more than just drug-related adverse events. This was shown in a comparative study of 2 dihydropyridine calcium antagonists that had near identical tolerability profiles. The results of the study were presented at the 8th European Meeting on Hypertension [ Milan, Italy; June 1997 ]. Other comparative studies looking at the clinical, tolerability and QOL profiles of various antihypertensive therapies were also presented.
