ABSTRACT
The article examines the role of diuretics as first-line drugs or add-on drugs in the context of the available antihypertensive armamentarium. Based on the guidelines of the European Society of Cardiology/European Society of Hypertension (ESC/ESH), thiazide diuretics are recommended as β-blockers, calcium antagonists, angiotensin-converting enzymes (ACE) inhibitors, and angiotensin receptor blockers. One advantage of using diuretics is that it prevents osteoporosis development.
