Abstract

Objective: To describe the treatment of hypertension, alone or in combination with associated conditions, by a group of general practitioners in the FAMUS network and to compare these treatment patterns to the recommendations of the Canadian Hypertension Society Consensus. Design: Descriptive study based on data collected by 233 physicians in the FAMUS provincial register on hypertensive patients treated in 1996. Participants: Developed between 1992 and 1996, the register contains 52 505 patients, 9 094 of whom have high blood pressure. These patients consulted their general practitioners for a complete examination. The data concern the risk factors for cardiovascular disease and include the list of medications prescribed. Main outcome and measures:  Evaluation of the proportions in which various classes of medications were prescribed, and the most common combinations in relation to the presence or absence of associated conditions. Results: Of the 4 049 hypertensive patients seen in 1996, 50.2% were treated with one medication; 32.9% were treated with more than one medication; and 16.9% received no antihypertensive medication. The most frequently prescribed medications were calcium channel blockers (26.1%), followed by diuretics (25.3%), angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (24.3%), and β-blockers (20.0%). Other agents made up the remaining 4.3% of prescriptions. The proportions were similar for patients without complications who received one medication. Conclusions: Results of this study suggest that the new molecules are widely used and that treatment patterns differ from the recommendations of the Canadian Hypertension Society Consensus, particularly in the absence of associated conditions.
