University of Oslo -- A drug that lowers blood pressure could harm patients if given after a stroke, says a new study. A Norwegian study of 2,000 stroke patients, who had high blood pressure, found that more of those treated with the drug candesartan suffered from kidney failure than those who were not given it.
