High blood pressure is a public health problem that generates high financial and social costs due to its high prevalence, long duration, dependence on multiple pharmacotherapy and its often lethal complications. Consequently, an investigation was carried out with the objective of developing a therapeutic alternative, for the treatment of hypertension in older adults from the therapeutic areas. In older adults investigated up to 70% are over 65 years of age, of them 60% were women and it was observed that diastolic blood pressure was 90 mm Hg, while the upper systolic pressure was 150 mm Hg. The statistical system SPSS 11.5 was used. The results were expressed in absolute frequencies and percentages. The beneficiaries had many variations in the frequency of hypertensive crisis, a situation that varied significantly, from the application of the proposal.
