New Data Shows Blood Pressure Reduction Therapy with BENICAR(R) and BENICAR HCT(R) Effectively Reduces Blood Pressure in Elderly Patients to Target Blood Pressure
Date:5/8/2009

rsensitivity Reaction

Hypersensitivity reactions to hydrochlorothiazide may occur in patients with or without a history of allergy or bronchial asthma, but are more likely in patients with such a history.

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Thiazide diuretics have been reported to cause exacerbation or activation of systemic lupus erythematosus.

Lithium Interaction

Lithium generally should not be given with thiazides.

Adverse Events

  • The withdrawal rates due to adverse events (AEs) were similar with BENICAR(R) and BENICAR HCT(R) to placebo: BENICAR (2.4% vs 2.7%); BENICAR HCT (2.0% vs 2.0%)
  • The incidence of AEs with BENICAR and BENICAR HCT was similar to placebo

-- The only AE that occurred in >1% of patients treated with BENICAR(R) and more frequently than placebo was dizziness (3% vs 1%)

-- AEs reported in >2% of patients taking BENICAR HCT(R) and more frequently than placebo included nausea (3% vs 0%), hyperuricemia (4% vs 2%), dizziness (9% vs 2%), and upper respiratory tract infection (7% vs 0%)

Dosing and Administration

  • No initial dosage adjustments are recommended with BENICAR in elderly or in moderate to marked renal impairment*/hepatic dysfunction

-- In patients with possible depletion of intravascular volume (eg, patients on diuretics, particularly with impaired renal function), BENICAR should be initiated under close medical supervision and consideration given to use of a lower starting dose

  • For BENICAR HCT, dose selection for an elderly patient should be cautious, usually starting at the low end of the dosage range

*Creatinine clearance <40 mL/min.
