Annotation:  The article presents the results of complex treatment of patients with arterial hypertension with identified situational depression. Of the 1328 patients examined arterial with hypertension stage II, 216 (16.3%) demonstrated the presence of situational depression, which does not require correction with psychotropic drugs. Patients were divided into three groups; all patients received standard antihypertensive pharmacotherapy. Additionally, the patients of the first group independently performed auto-training; the second is auto-training + functional music; the third - auto-training + functional music, and also received L-arginine (0.75 once a day). It has been shown that the additional inclusion in the standard antihypertensive pharmacotherapy of the psychotherapeutic complex of auto-training + functional music more effectively reduces the indicator of situational depression than just auto-training. Reducing the level of situational depression allows you to achieve target values of systolic and diastolic blood pressure, and the inclusion of L-arginine increases the effectiveness of complex treatment.
