Treating Prehypertension

NEJM published a study about the Feasibility of Treating Prehypertension with an Angiotensin-Receptor Blocker:

“Treatment of prehypertension with candesartan …. reduced the risk of incident hypertension during the study period. Thus, treatment of prehypertension appears to be feasible.”

California Medicine Man is not so sure if this is a good idea.

    What do doctors do when they have a patient without health insurance? If they need help with prescription prices the doctor could suggest a discount card. I found a good one at It has a very low membership fee and the drugs prices are posted to check what you take before you sign up. And your favorite pharmacy is probably a participating pharmacy because RxDrugCard is accepted by 52,000 drugstores nationwide.
