In view of the currently inadequate control of hypertension, multiple guidelines have recently been published to help improve the management of this increasingly common condition. In most regards these guidelines are in agreement, in particular as to the need for overall cardiovascular risk assessment, the selection of appropriate initial therapy, the need for long-acting formulations, and for a diuretic as part of most regimens.
