What is the role of alpha-blocker based regimens in the control of blood pressure ?
 

The Antihypertensive and Lipid Lowering Treatment to Prevent Heart Attack (ALLHAT) trial showed that an alpha-blocker based regimen is less efi'ective than a diuretic-based regimen in preventing heart failure (JAMA 2000: 283: 1967-75). Additionally, there was a marginally significant excess of stroke in the alpha-blocker group. Although poorer blood pressure control might account for the higher risk of stroke, it does not entirely explain the two-fold greater risk of heart failure.
