Abstract

A modern antihypertensive drug must allow for balanced 24-hour blood pressure control. It is preferred to administer the drug once a day. Therefore one of the most important properties of the drug is its long-term antihypertensive effect. The paper discusses clinical trials of slow-release preparations and focuses on the effect of discussed drugs on circadian blood pressure profile, regression of target organ damage and its tolerance.
