Someone explain to me the differences in blood pressure meds. I just read an article in the NYT a few weeks ago regarding something about studies proving a higher rise of blah blah blah if you can't control your BP with FOUR or less medications. I'm currently just taking 50mg of Atenolol a day, and it's the first and only Rx I've been on. I'm just curious about the layman's science behind all of the different categories. As far as I know Atenolol is not a diuretic drug, but both my parents who are on Rx for high BP take some drugs that are diuretics. What are the pros and cons of the different types, how do they each act upon the cardiovascular system to reduce BP? I'm not necessarily thinking of switching from Atenolol or questioning my doc, I'm really just curious! (And too lazy to Google stuff)
