Pharmacology Doxazocin is an “alpha-adrenoceptor blocking drug” and it is used in both hypertension and benign prostatic hyperplasia (Joint Formulary Committee, 2014). For the purpose of this essay, the main focus will be on the anti-hypertensive properties of Doxazosin. Selective α1 antagonists work on the post-synaptic α1 adrenoreceptors predominantly found in vascular smooth muscle. These receptors are normally bound by norepinephrine or epinephrine to mediate regulation of the cardiovascular
In a 12 week study of diabetic type II patients (n=161) their where no changes in the level of HbA1C (www.rxlist.com). Proposed benefits of drug: Atacand HCT Atacand HCT (Candesartan celexetil-hydrochlorothiazide) was developed for patients who were unsuccessfully treated with single antihypertensive agents. The proposed benefit is elicited by the drugs action on angiotensin II receptor antagonists, the agent that causes
drugs used for treating hypertension changes over time in response to changes in recommended guidelines and innovations in drug formulations, among others. In addition, the classes of antihypertensive drugs used vary among the countries. The aim of this study was to investigate the practice of antihypertensive medications in Tertiary care hospital in India. Study Design: Retrospective analysis of prescription pattern for hypertensive outpatients. Place and Duration of the Study: Tertiary care hospital
which is the pressure as the heart pumps blood around the body is 140 mm Hg or more, or a diastolic blood pressure (DBP) which is the pressure as the heart relaxes and refills with blood, is 90 mm Hg or more, and the individual is taking antihypertensive medication, it is called Hypertension (Madhur, 2014).

Smitapadmaet al.,(2005); have studied formulation and evaluation losartan potassium sustained release tablets of antihypertensive drug. The study was an attempt to improved therapeutic efficacy, reduced frequency of administration and improved patient compliance. Losartan potassium was formulated as oral sustained release tablets by using HPMC K4M and HPMC K15M. Preformulation study were carried out to evaluate the parameters like powder
