Video: FDA approves Exforge HCT(R) - the Only High Blood Pressure Treatment to Combine Three Medications in a Single Pill
Date:4/30/2009

y controlled on any two of the following anti-hypertensive classes: calcium channel blockers, angiotensin receptor blockers, and diuretics. The full blood pressure lowering effect was achieved two weeks after being on the maximal dose of Exforge HCT.

Exforge and Exforge HCT will be offered at the same price in the US on a dose-equivalent basis, essentially providing the added diuretic in Exforge HCT at no additional cost. Since Exforge HCT combines three medications in a single pill, patients may benefit from reduced insurance co-payments.

"This approval of Exforge HCT as the only single blood pressure pill combining the efficacy of three of the most-prescribed treatments in their classes represents a significant milestone toward reducing the burden of unmet need in hypertension," said Trevor Mundel, MD, Global Head of Development at Novartis Pharma AG. "Novartis remains confident in the important role of single pill combination medications to help appropriate patients achieve their blood pressure targets, while providing physicians with a range of powerful yet flexible combinations of doses to effectively manage high blood pressure in different patients."

This FDA approval was based on a clinical trial of Exforge HCT of over 2,000 patients.

Indications and Important Safety Information

EXFORGE(R) is indicated for the treatment of hypertension in patients not adequately controlled on monotherapy and as initial therapy in patients likely to need multiple drugs to reach their blood pressure goals.
