[Hemodynamic effect of a combination of prazosin with cardiac depressants in the treatment of hypertension].

Abstract

Arterial blood pressure and central hemodynamic changes were assessed in 44 patients with essential hypertension, uncontrollable by prazosin alone, after propranolol (anaprilin), celiprolol, clonidine (clofelin) or verapamil were added to the treatment schedule. A selective beta 1-adrenoblocker, celiprolol, is shown to be the best option in prazosin-treated patients with reflex increment of heart rate and stroke volume. The prazosin-verapamil combination is also justified in cases of moderately increased pulse rate, while propranolol and clonidine produce no additional hypotensive effect when combined with prazosin.
