For resistant hypertension, either an alpha-blocker or spironolactone or other diuretic could be added.
Moreover, diuretic therapy should always be carefully monitored, to reduce the risks of hemoconcentration.[external_link_head]
Within the first 2 weeks he developed clinical signs of severe heart failure and was treated with digitalis and diuretics.
This points to a possibility of influencing ventricular function by proper medication, such as angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and/or diuretics.
The authors conclude that older drugs such as diuretics and beta-blockers are as effective as newer agents in the treatment of hypertensive diabetic patients.[external_link offset=1]
Other drugs may affect the cardiovascular responses such as beta-blockers or diuretics (volume depletion).
A small dose of loop diuretic (frusemide 20 mg. or bumetanide 0.5mg.) may be initiated and followed by careful upward titration.
In acute heart failure, the role of diuretics is not clear-cut, with potential adverse effects, and further work in this area would be helpful.
It may be that loop diuretics do not have a role in the management of patients with heart failure and normal left-ventricular function.
Purging episodes score=primary purging behaviour (episodes of vomiting, or laxative, diuretic or enema/suppository misuse).
The patient developed major respiratory problems with retention of carbon dioxide despite endotracheal intubation and treatment with diuretics and digoxin.[external_link offset=2]
Additionally, drug history, particularly of diuretics, anticholinergics and sedatives, which may aggravate or induce incontinence, is also important.
With the exception of low-dose thiazide diuretics, the dose of drug needs to be titrated against the blood pressure response.
Randomised study of six betablockers and a thiazide diuretic in essential hypertension.
Routine treatment with digoxin was performed in the majority of the cases, with diuretics in a few of them and with vasodilators in one.
