Studies have frequently found ACE inhibitors, ARBs and CCBs (calcium channel blockers) to all be effective in lowering blood pressure compared to placebo, or just exercise alone
Beta blockers will usually only be prescribed to lower blood pressure as a ‘last resort’ if all other treatment options haven’t worked. This is because they aren’t as effective as the other treatments for hypertension.
Different treatments will work better for different people, so you might need to try a couple before you find a treatment that works for you, but you should be able to find a treatment that helps you to control your blood pressure.
Remember, though, not to rely on treatment alone. The treatments will always work best alongside a considered diet and exercise.
