In order to compare the medium term antihypertensive effectiveness and tolerability of atenolol with those of bopindolol (LT 31-200), a new non-selective beta-blocker with slight PAA (partial agonist activity), a randomized double-blind study was performed. Thirty-one outpatients with mild-to-moderate essential hypertension (WHO stage I-II) were enrolled(More)
In a random trial, the effects of treatment and withdrawal of guanfacine were compared with those of clonidine in 20 uncomplicated hypertensive patients. Elevated blood pressure returned to normal or responded well in all the patients given either guanfacine once daily or clonidine thrice daily. The pulse rate was reduced comparably by both treatments after(More)
One hundred patients scheduled for surgery participated in a randomized double-blind trial designed to evaluate the effects of acute treatment with two doses of bopindolol (1 mg:BP1;2 mg:BP2) in comparison with those of 2.5 mg lorazepam (LR), 75 mg butalbital (BT) and placebo (PL). Anxiety was evaluated by the STAI X1 questionnaire on the day before(More)
The effectiveness and safety of dihydroergotoxine mesylate (DHT) and clonidine (CLO) as acute antihypertensive treatments were studied in a single-blind randomized controlled study of 28 patients hospitalized after abrupt increases in mean blood pressure (MAP) to more than 150 mmHg, with concomitant symptoms related to hypertensive status (16 patients).(More)
