Persistence of Normal BP after Withdrawal of Drug Treatment in Mild Hypertension
In this study of mild hypertensive patients who stopped drug treatment, Freis, Kharti, and Levinson determined that it was
possible for hydrochlorothiazide and related diuretics to produce long-term changes in some patients that persist after withdrawal
from treatment. The findings suggested that for a small percentage of patients with mild hypertension, the life-long use of
antihypertensive drugs was not required.
