Fixed-dose combination for newly diagnosed hypertensive patients, first line: where are we?
About the event
The conference focused on the 2018 ESC/ISH hypertension guidelines recommendations to treat hypertensive patients with fixed-dose combinations, from diagnosis, and reduce low control rates (30%1).
The European Society of Cardiology of 2018/European Society of Hypertension (ESC / ESH) for the management of arterial hypertension2 recommend in most cases to start antihypertensive treatment with two drugs, preferably in a combination in a single tablet, of a angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) in association with a calcium channel blocker (CCB).
He emphasized that it is better to treat a newly diagnosed hypertensive patient early with a low-dose two-drug combination such as Coveram 3.5/2.5, rather than monotherapy, thanks to its dual mechanism of action.
Coveram 3.5/2.5 is much more effective and faster in reducing BP(-30mmHg3), with 24-hour4 control and only cardio-metabolic protection (-19%)5, compared to ARA II monotherapies, demonstrated by scientific evidence.
