hi,thanks for query.Please understand that in most of the cases we do not know or there is no detectable cause of hypertension.With medicines we are only controlling the blood pressure we are not curing the in most of the cases you need to take this or another drug life long to avoid complications.Any drug can have side effect but one has to take in to consideration the risk benefit ratio.
wishing you good health.
