  • No. The use of tranquilizers has absolutely no place in the treatment of hypertension.
  • Tranquilizers are useful for persons with anxiety and panic attacks, irrespective of the presence of hypertension.
  • The term "stress induced hypertension" is quite wrong and misleading because under conditions of emotional stress, regret or panic, every person, hypertensive or not, may have high blood pressure. In that sense every human being may exhibit "stress induced hypertension". On the contrary, only those persons who consistently exhibit high blood pressure, under restful conditions, are hypertensives.
