4.Hypertension in pregnant women is best managed with what drug?
Answer: There is no clear consensus on the management of mild to moderate hypertension in pregnancy to optimise pregnancy outcomes.Nevertheless, national hypertension societies of the US, Canada and Australasia all list methyldopa, labetalol and long-acting nifedipine as acceptable oral antihypertensive agents if drug therapy is required in pregnant women with mild to moderate hypertension.

Methyldopa is a drug of first choice for control of mild to moderate hypertension in pregnancy and is the most widely prescribed antihypertensive for this indication in several countries, including the US and the UK. The wide use of this drug in pregnancy reflects the fact that it has the best documented maternal and fetal safety record, including favourable long term (4.5 to 7.5 year) paediatric follow-up data.During long term use in pregnancy, methyldopa does not alter maternal cardiac output or blood flow to the uterus or kidneys, and for all these reasons is generally considered the agent of choice for chronic blood pressure control in pregnancy.
