The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of Nebivolol and Hydrochlorothiazide on blood pressure in African Americans with high blood pressure.
Many blood pressure medications are not effective in African American men and women. The two lower chambers of the heart contract to pump blood to the body. The lower chambers have to relax so they can refill with blood to pump out again. Many patients with high blood pressure have stiffness in the lower chambers which prevents the heart from relaxing so it can properly fill with blood. Some patients with the stiffness in the lower chambers of the heart will develop heart failure.
The study is to test whether or not Nebivolol (Bystolic)and a diuretic Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) will help the heart relax so the heart can properly fill and prevent stiffness of the lower heart chambers.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of nebivolol on blood pressure and heart rate in African American patients with hypertension.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of various doses of nebivolol in patients with mild to moderate hypertension.
The primary object of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of 6 weeks of nebivolol monotherapy compared with placebo in patients with systolic stage 2 hypertension.
Real-world tolerability and effectiveness of nebivolol as first add-on therapy were compared with hydrochlorothiazide, metoprolol, and amlodipine. Medical records of hypertensive adults initiating neb...
Intradialytic hypertension is estimated at 5-15% of hemodialysis patients and is associated with poor prognosis. Studies on therapeutic interventions for this entity are extremely few. We aimed to eva...
Chronic ethanol consumption is associated with hypertension and atherosclerosis. Vascular oxidative stress is described as an important mechanism whereby ethanol predisposes to atherosclerosis. We hyp...
Thiazide and thiazide-like diuretics are an important group of drugs used in the treatment of essential arterial hyper-tension. While their beneficial therapeutic effect in monotherapy is evident, the...
The effect of nebivolol and ramipril on selected biochemical parameters, arterial stiffness, and circadian profile of blood pressure in young men with primary hypertension: A 12-week prospective randomized, open-label study trial.
The pleiotropic effects of hypotensive drugs should always be taken into consideration. There is limited data on the effect of such drugs on reducing global cardiovascular risk in young hypertensives....
A cardioselective ADRENERGIC BETA-1 RECEPTOR ANTAGONIST (beta-blocker) that functions as a VASODILATOR through the endothelial L-arginine/ NITRIC OXIDE system. It is used to manage HYPERTENSION and chronic HEART FAILURE in elderly patients.
A thiazide diuretic with actions and uses similar to those of HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE. It has been used in the treatment of familial hyperkalemia, hypertension, edema, and urinary tract disorders. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p810)
A thiazide diuretic often considered the prototypical member of this class. It reduces the reabsorption of electrolytes from the renal tubules. This results in increased excretion of water and electrolytes, including sodium, potassium, chloride, and magnesium. It is used in the treatment of several disorders including edema, hypertension, diabetes insipidus, and hypoparathyroidism.
A condition in pregnant women with elevated systolic (>140 mm Hg) and diastolic (>90 mm Hg) blood pressure on at least two occasions 6 h apart. HYPERTENSION complicates 8-10% of all pregnancies, generally after 20 weeks of gestation. Gestational hypertension can be divided into several broad categories according to the complexity and associated symptoms, such as EDEMA; PROTEINURIA; SEIZURES; abnormalities in BLOOD COAGULATION and liver functions.
Hypertension due to RENAL ARTERY OBSTRUCTION or compression.
