Hello,
Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

There is no seperate best drug category for treatment of blood pressure. There are about 30 number of drugs available in the market for treating blood pressure, but treatment depends on age, body weight, associated comorbidities like diabetes, heart diseases, stroke . so the selection of combination of drugs is decided after taking clinical history from the patient.
