Adverse Reactions
The safety profile of Exforge HCT presented below is based on clinical studies performed with Exforge HCT and the known safety profile of the individual components amlodipine, valsartan and hydrochlorothiazide.
Information on Exforge HCT: The safety of Exforge HCT has been evaluated at its maximum dose of 10 mg/320 mg/25 mg in one controlled short-term (8 weeks) clinical study with 2,271 patients, 582 of whom received valsartan in combination with amlodipine and hydrochlorothiazide. Adverse reactions were generally mild and transient in nature and only infrequently required discontinuation of therapy. In this active controlled clinical trial, the most common reasons for discontinuation of therapy with Exforge HCT were dizziness and hypotension (0.7%).
In the 8-week controlled clinical study, no significant new or unexpected adverse reactions were observed with triple therapy treatment compared to the known effects of the monotherapy or dual therapy components.
In the 8-week controlled clinical study, changes in laboratory parameters observed with the combination of Exforge HCT were minor and consistent with the pharmacological mechanism of action of the monotherapy agents. The presence of valsartan in the triple combination attenuated the hypokalaemic effect of hydrochlorothiazide.
The following adverse reactions, listed by MedDRA System Organ Class and frequency, concern Exforge HCT (amlodipine/valsartan/HCT) and amlodipine, valsartan and HCT individually.
Very common: ≥1/10; common: ≥1/100 to <1/10; uncommon: ≥1/1,000 to <1/100; rare: ≥1/10,000 to <1/1,000; very rare: <1/10,000, not known (cannot be estimated from the available data). (See Table 1.)
