Hypertension is a multifactorial disease. Various antihypertensive drugs can lower arterial pressure in a given patient in a more or less efficient way. The sequential testing of several drugs is most promising for lowering blood pressure by monotherapy. If necessary a drug combination is preferable to dose adjustments of a single substance because of the risk for side effects growing with the dose.
