Antihypertensives don't contain aspirin at all. Maybe you're confusing the 2 because doctors usually start patients who have hypertension on aspirin also because they ar at risk for a stroke or a cardiac event, heart attack. Aspirin thins out the blood so it does clump together and clog the arteries.
