Safety of the newer antihypertensive agents in children

Expert Opinion on Drug Safety
D Blowey

Abstract

Hypertension is relatively uncommon in children and few children receive antihypertensive medications. This article reviews the safety of calcium channel blockers, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin II receptor antagonists in children with hypertension. While the newer antihypertensive agents appear to be well-tolerated by children, further studies are needed to determine the safety profile across the developmental continuum, with chronic dosing and in children with complex hypertension.
