Benign Essential Hypertension
requires adjustment of drug intake and in my opinion AAA stent graft had not much role to play in that. That is except for the fact the same disease atheroscrlerosis is responsible for causing hypertension and need for AAA by causing disease in your aorta
. Apparently, your renal arteries have been spared otherwise you would have been told about this and treatment would have including stent implantation
in reanal artery
or both of the arteries. The fact you have been prescribed ACE inhibitor
group of drugs also means that your renal functions are normal. Please follow the advice of doctors adjusting the dose of a single drug is a common thing in the endeavor of controlling blood pressure. And involving the patient by the way of keeping blood pressure pressure record helps the treating doctor to adjust the timing of drug administration. Good Luck
