We registered 115 depressed patients with hypertension over a year in a Clinic Hospital from Craiova. In our study, 94,6% of our patients who were diagnosed with depression and hypertension were treated with an antidepressant. Most of the prescribed antidepressants (62,5%) are antidepressants that, theoretically, increase the blood pressure.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
