Abstract

The effects of beta blockers, alpha1 blockers and calcium antagonist on lipid profile were examined in placebo controlled studies in mild to moderate hypertensive patients. Alpha1 blockers like prazosin and doxazosin; and calcium antagonists like nicardipine did not interfere with lipid profiles in hypertensive patients. Acebutolol (a cardioselective, beta blocker with intrinsic sympathetic activity (ISA)) did not have any adverse effect on lipid profile as compared to atenolol which caused a significant increase in serum triglyceride. Metoprolol caused no significant effect on lipid profile; however, there is a tendency for the agent to cause an increase in serum triglyceride.
