NICE to consider evidence supporting BP target of 120mmHg, says expert


That study did mention more side effects such as hypo tension, but no % was given, so hard to judge benefit vs problems. My ENT colleagues tell me that many episodes of dizziness they see = too much BP tablets. Certainly a J shaped curve. Much lower and you get more IHD. Jury is still out.
