WARNING: FETAL TOXICITY

See full prescribing information for complete boxed warning.

  • When pregnancy is detected, discontinue TEVETEN as soon as possible.
  • Drugs that act directly on the renin-angiotensin system can cause injury and death to the developing fetus. See WARNINGS: Fetal Toxicity
 

TEVETEN SUMMARY

TEVETEN® (eprosartan mesylate) is a non-biphenyl non-tetrazole angiotensin II receptor (AT1) antagonist.

TEVETEN® is indicated for the treatment of hypertension. It may be used alone or in combination with other antihypertensives such as diuretics and calcium channel blockers.

Published Studies Related to Teveten (Eprosartan)

Effects of eprosartan on diastolic function and neurohormones in patients with hypertension and diastolic dysfunction. [2010.02]
OBJECTIVE: To compare the effects of an angiotensin receptor blocker(ARB)-based regimen versus a non-ARB based regimen on diastolic function and neurohormones in patients with hypertension and diastolic dysfunction... CONCLUSION: Lowering blood pressure, either with eprosartan or other anti-hypertensives in hypertensive patients with diastolic dysfunction did not change diastolic function after 6 months of treatment, but was associated with a decrease of NT-proBNP.

Comparative effects of telmisartan and eprosartan on insulin sensitivity in the treatment of overweight hypertensive patients. [2009.12]
The aim of this study was to compare the effect of telmisartan and eprosartan on insulin sensitivity in overweight hypertensive patients. Fifty overweight (BMI > or = 25 and <30 kg/m (2)) outpatients, aged 41-65 years, with mild to moderate hypertension [systolic blood pressure (SBP) >140 and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) > or = 90 and < or = 110 mmHg], after a 4-week placebo period, were randomized to receive telmisartan 80 mg or eprosartan 600 mg for 8 weeks...

Eprosartan in the primary prevention of cardiac allograft vascular disease: a double-blind prospectively randomized study using intravascular ultrasound. [2008.09]
The angiotensin blocker (ARB) eprosartan (600 mg once daily) and the calcium antagonist diltiazem (90 mg twice daily) were studied in a 24-month prospective, randomized, double-blind trial involving 53 heart transplant patients. The study compared their effects on the development of post-transplant cardiac allograft vasculopathy, a condition that frequently impairs long-term post-transplantation survival and where angiotensin blockers might be expected to play a preventive role...

Effect of eprosartan on the sympathetic response to cold pressor test in healthy volunteers. [2006.06.30]
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of short-term administration of the AT1 angiotensin II receptor antagonist, eprosartan, on the sympathetic response to cold pressor test (CPT) in normotensive healthy volunteers. Sixty-nine healthy volunteers were included in this double-blind placebo-controlled study...

Atenolol and eprosartan: differential effects on central blood pressure and aortic pulse wave velocity. [2006.02]
BACKGROUND: Recent data suggest that atenolol may be inferior to other antihypertensive drugs in reducing cardiovascular risk in older individuals with hypertension, despite lowering peripheral blood pressure (BP). We hypothesized that that atenolol fails to reduce central BP as much as other agents. The aim of the present study was to compare the hemodynamic effects of atenolol and eprosartan in a double-blind, randomized, cross-over study... CONCLUSIONS: These data indicate that despite similar effects on peripheral BP and a greater effect on aortic stiffness, atenolol had less impact on central systolic BP than eprosartan because it failed to reduce wave reflection. This provides one potential explanation for the failure of atenolol to improve outcome in older patients with essential hypertension.

Clinical Trials Related to Teveten (Eprosartan)

Comparison of the Effect of Eprosartan and Eprosartan Mesylate on Blood Pressure in Essential Hypertension [Completed]
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.

Pharmacokinetic Study in Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease and Healthy Volunteers [Completed]
The purpose of this study is to find out how chemicals in the blood of patients with chronic kidney disease affect how medications are removed from the body. The patient will take one dose of three different drugs, one on each week, for a total of three single doses. The investigators want to find out if these three different medications are affected in different ways by the chemicals in the blood of patients with kidney disease.

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.

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

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.
