In brief: Several choices

Hi. For high blood pressure, many options are available, and are used based on patient profile.
I usually start with ACE inhibitors (or ARBs) and hydrochlorothiazide, then add a calcium channel blocker. Your doc will know. For high cholesterol, statins are usually first round; for different lipid problems, fenofibrate may be indicated. There are other lipid drugs too. See your doctor. Good luck!
