Answer

The goals of pharmacotherapy are to reduce morbidity and to prevent complications. Medications used to treat chronic glomerulonephritis include angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors (ACEIs), diuretics, calcium channel blockers, beta-adrenergic blockers, and alpha-adrenergic agonists.
