Abstract

Although hypertension is a major cause of morbidity and mortality, most patients with hypertension do not achieve their recommended goal blood pressure (i.e. <140/90mm Hg or <130/80mm Hg for those with diabetes mellitus or chronic kidney disease). Although the ‘ideal’ antihypertensive agent does not exist, it should have efficacy in lowering blood pressure to recommended goals, a rapid onset of efficacy, convenient once-daily administration, a clear dose-response effect and an excellent tolerability profile
