1. Autonomic over activity is known to precede overt hypertension, and with intervention at this stage it could be possible to delay and minimise further elevation in blood pressure. 2. In the present study propranolol 20 mg/day has been tried in first order relatives of hypertensives who showed hyperresponsiveness in manoevures like cold pressor test and Valsalva manoevure which involve reflex sympathetic activity. Propranolol was effective in reducing the exaggerated response without causing overt cardiovascular effects.
