So I for some reason am having such a tough time remembering the name of a medication! I had clinical and was looking at a pt's meds. There was one antihypertensive drug I've never heard of and is RARELY used by the pt, which is why I don't remember it. It was a weird one, one with a long generic name. But it is indicated for emergency HTN for bp over 210/120 mmHg. I know this is so broad, but can anyone think of a antihypertensive that is commonly used for emergency HTN ?
It isn't lisinopril,metoprolol, lotensin, propranalol...I googled some to try to refresh my memory but had not like..
Maybe hydralizine? Has anyone heard of this treating emergency HTN or is it commonly used for general HTN
