    well i m not agree with u buddie because of following reason

    a single bp is not enough to label a pt hypertensive atleast 2 readings are needed

    secondly the first approach is to reduce the wt and modify life style like excercise and quiting smoking and alchol

    rule out the secondary causes

    and well acording to nice guidelines <55 ace in are correct choice .

    thanx

    ~I think lisinopril should be replaced by beta blocker something like atenolo 50 mg.!
    ~Once daily is right.but it should be in the morning.!

    I agree in the change to propranolol 50mg but its gonna make the dude tired so split the dose 25mg qam and 25mg qpm. 50mg qam will prevent him from hitting his max HR while he excercises. Oh...actually lets tell him to excercise qam before he takes the beta-blocker! Obviously the excercise and diet advice is also indicated.
