Urgent hypertension is defined by severe elevations of blood pressure without associated end-organ damage. The use of parenteral agents for this entity entails intensive monitoring and the potential for significant hemodynamic complications. Therefore, various oral regimens have been studied. Herein described are mechanisms of action, pharmacokinetics, clinical efficacy, and side effects of oral agents used in the treatment of urgent hypertension.
