There was no benefit for early treatment, and in fact, there was a trend toward worse functional outcome. The AHA recommends treatment for SBP over 220 or diastolic blood pressure (DBP) over 120. If treatment is warranted, the blood pressure should be lowered cautiously, 15% to 20% in the first 24 hours.
