Efficacy and tolerability of a switch to fixed-dose combination therapy with amlodipine besylate/benazepril hydrochloride after monotherapy with amlodipine besylate: Data from the African-American subpopulation of a practice-based, open-label study (the LOGIC study).
In this study of an African-American subpopulation of patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension who had uncontrolled BP while receiving amlodipine besylate monotherapy, switching from amlodipine besylate monotherapy to fixed-dose amlodipine besylate/benazepril HCl combination therapy reduced BP to a greater extent than with amlodipine besylate alone, and reduced the incidence of edema in patients who were edematous but who had controlled BP. Fixed-dose combination therapy with amlodipine besylate/benazepril HCI has the potential to improve BP control, leading to improved clinical outcomes and enhanced treatment compliance.
