If he has siblings, first find out what medications work for them, since they might work for him too.

Re: I want a hypertension or nephrology specialist in Florida

The first drug that has successfully lowered my Dad's blood pressure is, oddly enough, minoxidil (aka Rogaine).

Apparently minoxidil was oridinally developed as a blood pressure medicine until patients started complaining of a consistent side effect: hair growth.

My Dad, being a guy and all, can deal with this side effect and we are all very happy that his very resistant high blood pressure problem is under control.

If you have a friend or relative who's blood pressure isn't under control with other medicines, make sure and have them ask their doctor about this one.

NOTE: Another side effect my Dad is experiencing is swelling in his feet. We all, however, are happier with his side effects than with him continuing to walk around with his very high blood pressure!
