Teveten HCT (Eprosartan Mesylate / Hydrochlorothiazide) - Summary

 
 



USE IN PREGNANCY

When used in pregnancy during the second and third trimesters, drugs that act directly on the renin-angiotensin system can cause injury and even death to the developing fetus. When pregnancy is detected, TEVETEN® HCT Tablets should be discontinued as soon as possible. See WARNINGS: Fetal/Neonatal Morbidity and Mortality.

 

TEVETEN HCT SUMMARY

TEVETEN® HCT 600/12.5 and TEVETEN® HCT 600/25 (eprosartan mesylate-hydrochlorothiazide) combine an angiotensin II receptor (AT1 subtype) antagonist and a diuretic, hydrochlorothiazide. TEVETEN® (eprosartan mesylate) is a non-biphenyl non-tetrazole angiotensin II receptor (AT1) antagonist.

TEVETEN® HCT is indicated for the treatment of hypertension. It may be used alone or in combination with other antihypertensives such as calcium channel blockers. This fixed dose combination is not indicated for initial therapy (see DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION).

Published Studies Related to Teveten HCT (Eprosartan / Hydrochlorothiazide)

Ambulatory monitoring of systolic hypertension in the elderly: Eprosartan/hydrochlorothiazide compared with losartan/hydrochlorothiazide (INSIST trial). [2010.06]
INTRODUCTION: Systolic hypertension is very common in the elderly and is strongly associated with the risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events. The control of systolic hypertension is difficult and most patients require combination antihypertensive therapy. Few data are available regarding the efficacy of angiotensin II receptor antagonists on systolic hypertension of the elderly. The aim of this double-blind, double-dummy, randomized, parallel-group, multicenter study was to assess the efficacy of eprosartan 600 mg in combination with hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) 12.5 mg in comparison with losartan 50 mg in combination with HCTZ 12.5 mg, in reducing blood pressure in elderly patients with grade 2 systolic hypertension who did not optimally respond to eprosartan or losartan monotherapy... CONCLUSION: In this study, eprosartan/HCTZ did not demonstrate to be superior to losartan/HCTZ in reducing ABPM systolic hypertension in the elderly.

Safety and tolerability of eprosartan in combination with hydrochlorothiazide. [2002]
The ideal antihypertensive drug should be effective in reducing blood pressure, but have a low incidence of adverse effects... Therefore, the combination of eprosartan with hydrochlorothiazide can be effectively and safely used in patients not adequately responding to eprosartan monotherapy.

Clinical Trials Related to Teveten HCT (Eprosartan / Hydrochlorothiazide)

Comparison of the Effect of Eprosartan and Eprosartan Mesylate on Blood Pressure in Essential Hypertension [Recruiting]
Aim of this study is to compare the blood pressure lowering effect of a new drug formulation of eprosartan. Eprosartan belongs to a class of blood pressure lowering agents used worldwide since years with proven efficacy. The new formulation is compared to the currently marketed eprosartan tablet. Equivalent efficacy in blood pressure lowering effects should be demonstrated.

The Effect of Eprosartan on Hormones and Kidney Function in Healthy Humans. [Completed]
We, the investigators at Holstebro Hospital, want to test the hypothesis that eprosartan

reduces the activity of the sympathetic nervous system in healthy individuals - during

baseline conditions and after activation of the sympathetic nervous system.

The Effect of Eprosartan on Hormones and Kidney Function in Patients With Essential Hypertension [Completed]
We, the investigators at Holstebro Hospital, want to test the hypothesis that eprosartan reduces the activity of the sympathetic nervous system in patients with essential

hypertension - during baseline conditions and after activation of the sympathetic nervous

system.

Comparison of Eprosartan/HCT Versus Enalapril/HCT in Hypertensives With Type II Diabetes [Completed]

Observational Study to Investigate the Effectiveness of Eprosartan on Pulse Pressure (Teveten_MS) [Recruiting]
The study is to identify the effectiveness of Eprosartan on pulse pressure in hypertensive patients with metabolic syndrome

- Definition of pulse pressure (PP): Difference between systolic and diastolic blood pressure

produced one heart beat.
