Aim: To assess the proportion of resistant hypertension by analyzing the prescribing pattern of anti hypertensives in patients with chronic kidney disease. Objectives:-To assess the prescribing pattern of anti hypertensives in chronic kidney disease. To assess the proportion of resistant hypertension in chonic kidney disease. Methods:-Patients with chronic kidney disease receiving anti hypertensives were included in the study. Only the out patients were included in the study. The blood pressure readings were taken at their visit to the out patient department and the anti hypertensives prescribed was recorded. Statistical analysis was performed using suitable software programme. Results:-The proportion of resistant hypertension was found to be 83.3% (p0.000).46.7% received triple therapy distribution for the management of hypertension in chronic kidney disease (p0.002).The most prescribed drug was of the class diuretic(83.3%, p 0.000).
