Introduction: Very few studies have been successful in assessing the health-related quality of life among diagnosed hypertensive patients attending clinics or hospitals for follow-ups. Since the Ministry of Health, Saudi Arabia has dedicated a separate webpage to tackle this problem; feedback through community-based studies is needed to ensure proper planning and implementation. Methodology: A community based cross-sectional study was done to find out the correlation between the quality of life and hypertensive patients undergoing treatment in Majmaah, Saudi Arabia. Results: A total of 184 participants with a mean age of 57.8 years completed this study. Female participants (26.8%) overwhelmingly rated their quality of life as excellent as compared to male participants (4.9%) even though an equal number of both participants (20.2%) considered it to be good. Conclusion: A longitudinal study is needed to find out this significant difference in the symptomatology of Saudi male and female hypertensive patients on long term medication.
