In the absence of specific treatment guidelines for drug-induced hypertension, the recommended initial antihypertensive therapy should be directed to neutralize the specific mechanism causing hypertension (Table 1). STEROIDS Corticosteroids Hypertension occurs in about 20% of patients treated with high doses of synthetic corticosteroids. Oral cortisol increases BP in a dose-dependent fashion. At a dose of 80–200 mg/day, the peak increases in systolic pressure are of the order of 15 mmHg. This increase in BP is apparent within 24 hours.

Chapter 2/Drug-Induced Hypertension 33 HEAVY METALS Several studies show that cumulative exposure to lead, even at low levels sustained by the general population, may increase the risk of hypertension. Some reports suggest that arsenic or cadmium exposure also may induce hypertension in humans. However, in a recent study, environmental exposure to cadmium was not associated with higher conventional BP or 24-hour ambulatory BP measurements. SCORPIONS AND BLACK WIDOWS Venoms of scorpions (especially the South American species) and black widows commonly produce a clinical picture of profuse perspiration, lacrimation, vomiting, convulsion, and cardiovascular collapse.
