Hypertension is a medical condition, in which the blood exerts high pressure (force exerted by circulating blood) against blood vessel's walls.

Hypertension can cause severe health complications, including stroke, heart failure, heart attack and kidney failure.

It reduces the heart rate and makes the heart to pump blood efficiently throughout the body. Atenolol is also used to protect the heart during treatment of a heart attack.

This diuresis process (increased urine production) and excess salts and fluid removal help lower blood pressure. Indapamide is also used to treat fluid retention and overlaod (oedema) in patients with congestive heart failure.
