Although beta blockers have been used as initial therapy for ischemic heart diseases and heart failure, the beneficial effects of beta blockers are controversial compared with other antihypertensive agents as initial therapy for hypertension without compelling indications. Moreover, atenolol has been most commonly used with beta blockers. The objective of the present systematic review associated with the Japanese Society of Hypertension (JSH) 2019 Hypertension Guideline (Clinical Question 6… Expand
Recommended Management of Hypertensive Patients with Diabetes for Renin-Angiotensin System (RAS) Inhibitors
RAS (ACE inhibitors and ARB) would be recommended to be a first-line treatment when providing antihypertensive agents for hypertensive patients with diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and impaired renal function. Expand
Heart rate Is the Clinical Indicator of Sympathetic Activation and Prognostic Value of Cardiovascular Risks in Patients With Hypertension.
The results clearly indicated that patients with hypertension with HR >80 beats/minute could be characterized by a marked sympathetic overactivation, and that cardiac and peripheral sympathetic activation are involved in the increased cardiovascular risk detected in this group of patients. Expand
Role of TLR-4/IL-6/TNF-α, COX-II and eNOS/iNOS pathways in the impact of carvedilol against hepatic ischemia reperfusion injury
CAR protects liver from I/R injury through reduction of the oxidative stress and inflammation, and modulates endothelial and inducible nitric oxide synthase expressions. Expand

Beta‐blockers for hypertension
The effect of beta‐blockers on CVD was worse than that of CCBs, and most of them had a high risk of bias resulting from limitations in study design, conduct, and data analysis. Expand
Blood pressure lowering efficacy of dual alpha and beta blockers for primary hypertension.
Low quality evidence is provided that in patients with mild to moderate hypertension, dual receptor blockers lowered trough BP by an average of -6/-4 mm Hg and reduced heart rate by five beats per minute and the effect of labetalol is likely to be exaggerated due to high risk of bias. Expand
First-line drugs for hypertension.
The outcomes assessed were mortality, stroke, coronary heart disease, total cardiovascular events (CVS), decrease in systolic and diastolic blood pressure, and withdrawals due to adverse drug effects, to combine dichotomous outcomes across trials and calculate risk ratio with 95% confidence interval.

Efficacy of a Once‐Daily Formulation of Carvedilol for the Treatment of Hypertension
Carvedilol CR has a clinically meaningful defined dose‐dependent antihypertensive effect that persists throughout a 24‐hour period, and adverse events were similar in the drug‐treated and placebo groups. Expand
Double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover comparison of five classes of antihypertensive drugs
The results support an AB/CD scheme for choosing therapy, in which the first drug is taken from one of these pairs, and uncontrolled patients switch to one of the other pair. Expand
Bisoprolol, a once‐a‐day beta‐blocking agent for patients with mild to moderate hypertension
Results from this trial demonstrated the antihypertensive effectiveness of once‐daily bisoprolol at doses ranging from 5‐20 mg and sustained over the 24‐h dosing interval. Expand

It is concluded that, with proper dosage titration, most hypertensive patients could probably be controlled on beta blockers alone or in combination with a diuretic. Expand
Effects of Carvedilol on Blood Pressure in Patients with Mild to Moderate Hypertension
Carvedilol was well tolerated; 2 patients experienced dizziness associated with postural hypotension after administration of the 50mg dose, and the kinetics of carvedilol did not change with repeated administration. Expand
Bisoprolol and hypertension: effects on sexual functioning in men.
Bisoprolol is an effective antihypertensive drug with no detrimental effects on sexuality in newly diagnosed men with hypertension and improved sexuality in some parameters, i.e. firmness of erection during coitus, contentedness with sexual functioning and satisfaction with own sexuality. Expand
First‐Line Therapy Option with Low‐Dose Bisoprolol Fumarate and Low‐Dose Hydrochlorothiazide in Patients with Stage I and Stage II Systemic Hypertension
The benefits of low‐dose bisoprolol 5 mg/HCTZ 6.25 mg provide a rational basis for the use of this medication in the first‐line treatment of patients with stage I and stage II systemic hypertension. Expand
