Valdipin®-160: Each tablet contains Amlodipine 5mg & Valsartan 160mg
Hypertension, Angina & Heart failure
The usual starting dose is amlodipine 5mg+valsartan 80mg once daily. However, the dose may be increased to amlodipine 5mg+valsartan 160mg once daily
based on condition of the patient.
Mode of action
Amlodipine inhibits the transmembrane influx of calcium ions into vascular
smooth muscle and cardiac muscle. Valsartan selectively block Angiotensin
Receptor Type 1 (AT1) receptor and thereby prevents the binding of Angitensin
II to AT1 receptor. Blockade of AT1 receptors directly causes vasodilatation and
reduces production and secretion of aldosterone–the combined effect of
which is reduction of blood pressure.
Pharmacokinetic of Amlodipine
After oral administration of therapeutic doses of amlodipine, absorption
produces peak plasma concentrations between 6 and 12 hours. The bioavailability of amlodipine is not altered by the presence of food. Approximately
92-95% of the circulating drug is bound to plasma proteins in hypertensive
patients with an apparent volume of distribution of 21L/Kg. Steady-state
plasma levels of amlodipine are reached after 7 to 8 days of consecutive daily
dosing. Amlodipine is extensively metabolized in the liver with about 5% of the
drug excreted in the urine. 5% of the parent compound and 62% of the metabolites are excreted in the urine with remainder eliminated via GIT. Plasma
half-life of amlodipine ranges from 30 hour to 60 hour.
Pharmacokinetic of Valsartan
Peak plasma concentration of valsartan is reached 2 to 4 hours after dosing with an
average elimination half-life of about 6 hours. Absolute bioavailability for valsartan
is about 25% (range 10%-35%). With the tablet, food decreases the exposure (as
measured by AUC) to valsartan by about 40% and peak plasma concentration
(Cmax) by about 50%. AUC and Cmax values of valsartan increase approximately
linearly with increasing dose over the clinical dosing range. Valsartan does not
accumulate appreciably in plasma following repeated administration. Valsartan
primarily recovered in feces (about 83% of dose) and urine (about 13% of dose).
The recovery is mainly as unchanged drug, with only about 20% of dose recovered
as metabolites. Valsartan does not distribute into tissues extensively. Valsartan is
highly bound to serum proteins (95%), mainly serum albumin.
Side effects
Generally, this product is well tolerated. However, few side effects including abdominal pain, swelling, back pain, dizziness, rash and cough may occur in rare cases.
Drug interaction
As with other drugs that block angiotensin II or its effects, concomitant use of
potassium-sparing diuretics (e.g., spironolactone, triamterene, amiloride),
potassium supplements, or salt substitutes containing potassium may lead to
increases in serum potassium. The antihypertensive effect of Valsartan may be
attenuated by the non-steroidal anti-inflamatory drug indomethacin.
Use in high risk group
Nursing mother: It is not known whether valsartan is excreted in human milk,
but valsartan was excreted in the milk of lactating rats. Thiazides appear in
human milk. Because of the potential for adverse effects on the nursing infant,
a decision should be made whether to discontinue nursing or discontinue the
drug, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother.
Pediatric Use: Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients have not been
Geriatric Use: No overall difference in the efficacy or safety of valsartan-hydrochlorothiazide was observed between geriatric patients and younger patients,
but greater sensitivity of some older individuals cannot be ruled out.
For diabetic patients: Hydrochlorothiazide may raise blood sugar levels. Check
with doctor if any changes in blood sugar levels occur.
Valsartan is contraindicated in patients who are hypersensitive to any component of this product and who are hypersensitive to sulfonamide-derived drugs.
Pregnant women should not use the drug.
Store in a cool and dry place, away from direct light and children.
