Suggest safest blood pressure medication
no 100% safe choice
Although there is no such thing as a 100% safe drug, I can say that my personal preference for antihypertensive drugs is for angiotensin receptor blockers like valsartan, irbesartan, olmesartan, etc. All drugs have side effects and in most cases they're unpredictable. There are some predictable ones too, that's why the patient's history has to be taken into account.
For example a patient with high potassium may get into danger with olmesartan. Another patient with marginally low potassium who's also using digoxin may get into danger with diuretics. There are a lot of clinical scenarios and the doctor has to consider them before prescribing a new drug.
Starting with the lowest dose is a good way to avoid side effects. Don't forget to discuss any option with your doctor.
I hope it helps!
