Material and methods: This cross sectional consisted on 150 hypertensive patients and conducted at Department of Medicine, Sheikh Zayed Hospital Rahim Yar Khan from January 2019 to June 2019. Hypertension was considered as resistant hypertension when hypertensive patients managed with a combination of minimum 3 optimally dosed antihypertensive drugs of different classes, one of which ideally is a diuretic but having blood pressure 140/90mmHg (assessed on clinical examination, history and medical record) with patient’s good compliance with medication. Results: Total 150 hypertensive patients were selected for this study. Mean age of the patients was 56.45 ± 9.63 years, mean Systolic blood pressure was 131.66 ± 26.62 and mean diastolic blood pressure 83.90 ± 14.6. Resistant hypertension rate was 39 (26%) in 150 hypertensive patients.
