Bendroflumethiazide also works well in older patients, but some are unwilling to put up with the increased urinary frequency that is a side-effect of water tablets.
BARCELONA -- An antihypertensive treatment regimen of amlodipine plus perindopril led to 34% fewer cases of new-onset diabetes, compared with a regimen of atenolol plus bendroflumethiazide, in a controlled study with more than 14,000 hypertensive patients.
The medication includes Citalopran Hydro Bromide, which are anti-depressants, and Bendroflumethiazide, which are blood pressure tablets.
Like all participants in ASCOT, these hypertensive patients were randomized to treatment with either of two regimens: amlodipine, followed by perindopril when a second drug was needed to reach the goal brachialartery pressure, or atenolol, with the diuretic bendroflumethiazide and potassium added when a second drug was needed.
The second arm used the [beta]-blocker atenolol as the primary drug, with the diuretic bendroflumethiazide and potassium added when a second drug was needed.
ASCOT-BPLA studied 19,257 high-risk hypertensive patients on amlodipine (Norvasc), adding perindopril, or atenolol (Tenormin), adding bendroflumethiazide.

Sever reported on 19,257 hypertensive patients free of coronary heart disease who participated in the Anglo-Scandinavian Cardiac Outcomes Trial Blood Pressure-Lowering Arm (ASCOT-BPLA) who were randomized to amlodipine/perindopril or atenolol / bendroflumethiazide.
Other possible explanations include a suspected adverse interaction between atenolol/ bendroflumethiazide and statin therapy, and more effective inhibition of the renin-angiotensin system by amlodipine/perindopril.

He reported on 160 hypertensive British ethnic Asian Indians in a double-blind, 36 week clinical trial at 17 primary care centers in the United Kingdom in which they were randomized to antihypertensive therapy with the alpha-1 receptor blocker doxazosin or bendroflumethiazide.
Fasting insulin was significantly lower at 21 and 34 weeks in the doxazosin group than in bendroflumethiazide group.
