Abstract

Both drugs adequately decreased blood pressure to a similar degree and with similar lack of symptomatic side effects. They had different effects on forearm and finger vascular beds in this group of patients. Atenolol caused no significant changes in any parameter, although the trend was to increase resistance and decrease blood flow. Prazosin significantly increased flow and decreased resistance in both beds. There were no adverse effects on any of the measured lipid parameters following prazosin treatment. In this study, the hemodynamic and metabolic profile of prazosin appears to be suitable for diabetic hypertensive patient.
