In brief: NO
Antibiotics are medications used to fight bacterial infections and are very specific to the bacteria they are trying to treat.
Anti-hypertensives, or blood pressure medications, are the class of medications used to treat blood pressure. There are many different classes of BP meds and several choices within each class. Modern treatment is very effective at controlling blood pressure at any age!
