Date:4/30/2009

pill to help them control their high blood pressure."

Exforge HCT provides proven efficacy in patients with moderate to severe hypertension (MSDBP greater than or equal to 100 mmHg and <120 mmHg, MSSBP greater than or equal to 145 mmHg and <200 mmHg). In a clinical trial, the maximum dose of Exforge HCT (amlodipine/valsartan/ hydrochlorothiazide 10 mg/320 mg/25 mg) demonstrated significantly greater reductions in systolic and diastolic blood pressures when compared to all dual combinations of its components at the same doses (valsartan/hydrochlorothiazide 320 mg/25 mg, amlodipine/valsartan 10 mg/320 mg, and amlodipine/hydrochlorothiazide 10 mg/25 mg), providing additional reductions of 18-29% in systolic blood pressure and 19-32% in diastolic blood pressure. The reductions in systolic/diastolic blood pressure with Exforge HCT were 7.6/5.0 mmHg greater than with valsartan/hydrochlorothiazide, 6.2/3.3 mmHg greater than with amlodipine/valsartan, and 8.2/5.3 mmHg greater than with amlodipine/hydrochlorothiazide. These results also include a placebo effect of unknown size. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring showed that the blood pressure lowering effect of Exforge HCT was maintained throughout the 24-hour period.

High blood pressure affects approximately 74 million adults in the US and one in four adults worldwide. If high blood pressure is not treated, it can lead to heart attack and stroke. Exforge HCT is not indicated for the treatment or prevention of heart attack or stroke.

Research suggests that up to 85% of patients may need multiple medications and many need three or more to help control their blood pressure. Patients may find treatment more convenient with one single pill rather than separate pills.

Exforge HCT contains three effective medicines that work in three different ways. A patient may be switched to the single pill combination Exforge HCT if blood pressure is not adequatel
