Albin J. Enchiparambil*, Nithin Manohar R., Jomin George Joseph, Arunima G., Santhosh M. Mathews

ABSTRACT

Antihypertensive medications are one among the most highly used drugs across the globe as well as in India, and their prescribing pattern will be erratic despite the various clinical guidelines. Few studies address the pattern and adherence to the standard treatment guidelines in India. This study aimed to review the prescribing pattern of antihypertensive medications in a rural tertiary care teaching Indian hospital and to investigate the adherence to the Joint National Commission-8 (JNC-8) guidelines on prevention, detection, evaluation, and treatment of hypertension in adults.

Keywords: adherence, antihypertensive, drug use review, JNC-8, outcome review.
