What are the treatments for pregnancy-induced hypertension?

Ultimate, Delivery: Once blood pressure starts to rise, bedrest and occassional BP lowering meds may buy time for the baby to mature but the only "cure" is delivery of the baby. Sometimes the bloodpressure goes up so fast and so severe immediate delivery is the only option. A medicine called magnesium sulfide is given to prevent mother from having a siezure.

Yes: In the sense that it is an issue that needs to be managed during pregnancy. Usually pregnancy induced hypertension is either preeclampsia or not. If it is preeclampsia, then you need to determine if it is mild or severe. If it is gestational hypertension then as long as your blood pressure is controlled and the baby's growth is ok, then you can deliver at 39 to 40 weeks.
