Abstract

Most of the patients with hypertension require antihypertensive polytherapy to achieve target blood pressure. Fixed dose combination drugs increase compliance with medical recommendations and allow to achieve target blood pressure. The combination of perindopril and amlodipine is particularly recommended for hypertensive patients with metabolic complications due to proven hypotensive effect and neutral effect on blood glucose and cholesterol levels.
