Triple Combo Blood Pressure Pill Can Improve BP Control

"TUESDAY, Aug. 14, 2018 -- Treatment with a pill combining low doses of three antihypertensive drugs results in an increased proportion of patients with mild-to-moderate hypertension achieving their target blood pressure (BP), according to a study published in the Aug. 14 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association".

"Ruth Webster, Ph.D., from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, and colleagues conducted a randomized trial of a low-dose triple BP therapy versus usual care for adults with hypertension requiring initiation or escalation of antihypertensive therapy. Patients enrolled from 11 urban hospital clinics in Sri Lanka were randomized to a once-daily fixed-dose triple combination pill (20 mg telmisartan, 2.5 mg amlodipine, and 12.5 mg chlorthalidone; 349 patients) or usual care (351 patients)".



I take BP meds for high blood pressure and my doctor has me on three different meds. I have requested to try the new triple pill. If you have high BP I recommend talking to your doctor about the new pill.
