The management of hypertension often presents with challenges in blending natural therapeutics with multiple drug classifications and is further complicated with comorbidities that create compelling necessities for the use of one drug class or natural medicine vs. another. Evidence further warns against the use of certain drug classes with each other in various situations. This presentation will offer guidelines for the management of the most commonly presented hypertension scenarios in primary care including targeting optimal blood pressures in certain comorbidities
and using single and multiple conventional drugs with and without natural medicine. We will discuss transitioning strategies for weaning and replacing
medications, both natural and prescription and review guidelines to help avoid common hazards in clinical management.
