Which antihypertensive is best in osteoporosis?

A thiazide diuretic may be the best bet for patients with high blood pressure who are also at risk of fracture, according to a US study.

The finding comes from a secondary analysis of ALLHAT, a randomised trial which compared CVD outcomes with a thiazide diuretic (chlorthalidone), an ACE inhibitor (lisinopril) or a calcium channel blocker (amlodipine).
