A 65 yr old male had MI one year ago

A 65 yr old male had MI one year ago. Now the same pt. presents with HTN. Which of the following is the best suited for this patient?

a. Clonidine

b. Thiazide

c. Propranolol

d. Lisinopril

Sir, how to choose b/w options c and d? Both prevent cardiac remodelling.

Pt with h/o MI and HTN - Beta blockers are used


Bcs beta blockers reduce mortality in patients of MI.

Thiazides have no effect on mortality; its spironolactone.
