Adverse Reactions
Summary of the Safety Profile: The safety of Entresto in patients with chronic heart failure was evaluated in the pivotal phase 3 study PARADIGM-HF, which compared patients treated twice daily with Entresto 200 mg (n=4203) or enalapril 10 mg (n=4229). Patients randomized to Entresto received treatment for up to 4.3 years, with a median duration of exposure of 24 months; 3271 patients were treated for more than one year.
Discontinuation of therapy due to an AE in the double-blind period of the PARADIGM-HF trial occurred in 450 (10.71%) of Entresto treated patients and 516 (12.20%) of patients receiving enalapril. The events most commonly associated with dosage adjustment or treatment interruption were hypotension, hyperkalemia and renal impairment.
The overall incidence of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) of Entresto in heart failure patients was comparable to enalapril. The pattern of the ADRs is consistent with the pharmacology of Entresto and the patients underlying conditions.
The overall frequency of adverse reactions was not related to gender, age, or race.
Adverse drug reactions are ranked by System Organ Class and then by frequency with the most frequent first, using the following convention: 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), including isolated reports. Within each frequency grouping, adverse reactions are ranked in order of decreasing seriousness. (See Table 2.)

Adverse drug reactions from spontaneous reports and literature cases (frequency not known): The following adverse drug reactions have been derived from post-marketing experience with Entresto via spontaneous case reports and literature cases. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not possible to reliably estimate their frequency, which is therefore categorized as not known. Adverse drug reactions are listed according to system organ classes in MedDRA. (See Table 3.)
