In brief: The most proven meds

The most proven medications for high blood pressure are hydrochlorthiazide/chlorthalidone (diuretic), lisinopril (ACE inhibitor), and amlodipine(calcium channel blocker).
"Proven" means there is extensive and accepted scientific evidence that they not only lower BP but prevent strokes, heart and kidney damage and improve survival. Many other meds in these classes are also effective and useful.
