Use of herbal medicine is popular among cancer patients. This study aimed to explore the coprescription of CHM and WM among prostate cancer patients in Taiwan. This cross-sectional retrospective study used a population-based database containing one million beneficiaries of National Health Insurance. Claims and prescriptions were analyzed. In 2007, 218 (22.4%) prostate cancer patients were CHM users. Among CHM users, 200 (91.7%) patients with 5618 (79.5%) CHM prescriptions were on coprescription of CHM and WM. A total of 484 types of CHM and 930 types of WM were used. The most commonly used CHMs on coprescription were Shu Jing Huo Xue Tang, Ma Zi Ren Wan, and Xue Fu Zhu Yu Tang. The most commonly used WMs on coprescription were magnesium oxide, amlodipine, and aspirin. The average number of prescriptions per user per year was 261.2 versus 151.7 in all (P < 0.001), 123.6 versus 76.9 in WM (P = 0.033), and 34.8 versus 5.1 in CHM (P < 0.001) for patients with and without coprescription, respectively. In conclusion, use of CHM among prostate cancer patients was popular in Taiwan. Most CHMs were used with WM concurrently. The potential drug-herb interactions should be investigated, especially for patients with more prescriptions.

norvasc dosing

Administration of amlodipine did not induce an increase in sympathetic nerve activity in essential hypertensive patients during the chronic period, suggesting that beneficial effects on essential hypertension can be expected after its long-term administration. Administration of slow-releasing nifedipine induces milder reflex sympathetic activation than does that of short-acting nifedipine.

Many hypertensive patients require ≥2 drugs to achieve blood pressure targets. This study aims to review and analyze the clinical studies conducted with dual or triple combination of angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs), calcium channel blockers (CCBs), and diuretics. Medical literature between January 1990 and April 2012 was reviewed systematically and data from eligible studies were abstracted. Data were analyzed using random-effects models. Of the 224 studies screened, 7563 eligible patients from 11 studies were included. Triple combinations of ARBs (olmesartan or valsartan), CCBs (amlodipine), and diuretics (hydrochlorothiazide) at any dose provided more blood pressure reduction in office and 24-hour ambulatory measurements than any dual combination of these molecules (P<.0001 for both). Significantly more patients achieved blood pressure targets with triple combinations (odds ratio, 2.16; P<.0001). Triple combinations did not increase adverse event risk (odds ratio, 0.96; P=.426). Triple combinations at any dose seem to decrease blood pressure more effectively than dual combination of the same molecules without any remarkable risk elevation for adverse events. Further prospective studies evaluating the efficacy and safety of triple combinations, especially in the form of single pills, are required.

norvasc overdose death

Indapamide sustained release (SR) 1.5mg is a new galenic formulation that is characterised by a relatively constant plasma concentration at steady state, with only minor fluctuations during the 24-hour period. A dose-titration study of 3 doses of indapamide SR (1.5, 2 and 2.5mg) given once daily has shown that the 3 dosages are equipotent in lowering blood pressure, and have an effect similar to that of indapamide immediate-release (IR) 2.5mg; all were statistically more effective than placebo. The percentage of hypertensive patients whose serum potassium was less than 3.4 mmol/L was significantly lower after indapamide SR 1.5mg than after indapamide IR 2.5mg. Neither indapamide formulation had any significant effects on lipid profile, glucose, urea and serum creatinine; only uric acid was slightly raised during the 2-month study. In an equivalence study, indapamide SR 1.5mg and IR 2.5mg produced similar blood pressure reductions (within the equivalence limit of +/-5mm Hg), whereas the percentage of patients whose serum potassium fell to less than 3.4 mmol/L was lower in the IR 1.5mg group than in the SR 2.5mg group. Antihypertensive treatment with indapamide SR 1.5mg once daily produced reductions in blood pressure in elderly patients with systolic/diastolic or isolated systolic hypertension that were similar to reductions with amlodipine 5 mg/day. The incidence of adverse effects was very low in all studies with indapamide SR 1.5mg and very similar to that in the placebo group, confirming thereby the improvement in the efficacy: tolerance ratio with the new indapamide compound.

Leg weight was increased by both drugs, but the increase was significantly greater during treatment with amlodipine than with lercanidipine. Blood pressure decreased to a similar extent and postural vasoconstriction was antagonized comparably during both treatments.

Diabetes has long been recognized as a risk factor for heart disease. Recent evidence has brought to light complex interactions that seem to influence both the renal and the vascular complications of diabetes. The use of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers has been shown to ameliorate renal and cardiac risks in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes to a degree that is disproportionate to blood pressure-lowering effects. The judicious use of these agents can materially improve the prognosis for patients with diabetes.

Characteristics of L- and N-type calcium (Ca++) channel antagonist receptors in brains of senescence-accelerated prone mouse (SAMP8) showing age-related deterioration of learning and memory were examined by using (+)-[3H]PN 200-110 and [125I]omega-conotoxin GVIA as radioligands. There was a tendency toward consistent decrease in Bmax for both radioligands in seven brain regions of SAMP8 compared with the control mouse. The reduction in (+)-[3H]Pn 200-110 binding sites was statistically significant in the hippocampus, midbrain and pons/medulla oblongata, and that in [125I]omega-conotoxin binding sites was significant in the cerebral cortex, corpus striatum and pons/medulla oblongata. On the other hand, there was a marked elevation in Ca++ content in the brain of SAMP8. Chronic p.o. administration (0.3, 1 and 3 mg/kg/day for 3 weeks) of nimodipine and nicardipine to SAMP8 caused a significant increase in the Bmax values of (+)-[3H]PN 200-110 binding in the cerebral cortex and hippocampus. This may reflect up-regulation of brain Ca++ channel antagonist receptors as a result of the prolonged blockade by nimodipine and nicardipine. On the other hand, similar administration of amlodipine and nilvadipine failed to produce an enhancement of Bmax values of (+)-[3H]PN 200-110 binding, whereas both drugs at high doses evoked a significant increase in the apparent dissociation constant. Furthermore, the brain Ca++ content in SAMP8 was markedly reduced by chronic p.o. administration of Ca++ channel antagonists, and the decrease was equivalently observed for all of four 1,4-dihydropyridine antagonists in spite of the difference in the effect on brain receptors. In conclusion, the present study suggests that there is an altered Ca++ homeostasis in the SAMP8 brain that is effectively attenuated by chronic administration of nimodipine and nicardipine. Hence SAMP8 may be a suitable animal model for evaluating the therapeutic effects of Ca++ channel antagonists on neurological disorders associated with the aging brain.

Single-pill amlodipine/atorvastatin therapy was well tolerated and effectively targeted HTN and dyslipidemia in this population of African Americans who were at risk of cardiovascular disease.

norvasc 10mg medication

An 11-month-old, 10.88-kg boy ingested 10 to 45 mg amlodipine with 40 to 180 mg benazepril. No action was taken initially because the parents believed only one or two capsules had been ingested. A later count revealed a maximum of nine capsules missing. The child was observed at home and vomited once with possible capsule fragments. Forty-five minutes post-ingestion, the child was noted to be suddenly unresponsive and was brought the local emergency department by a private vehicle. Upon arrival (90 min post-ingestion), the child was unresponsive with the following vital signs HR 133 bpm, BP 67/42 mmHg, respiratory rate 40/min, and temperature 97.5°F. Pertinent abnormal laboratory values were HCO(3) 13 mmol/l and glucose 302 mg/dl. The child was placed on oxygen via a non-rebreather mask and was intubated 45 min post-arrival. The patient became progressively bradycardic, and 55 min after arrival, the patient was in asystole with no palpable blood pressure. Resuscitation measures included chest compressions, epinephrine atropine, sodium bicarbonate, and calcium gluconate. Rescue insulin therapy was begun with 4 units IVP followed by 10 units per hour. Resuscitation efforts persisted for 1 h without success. An autopsy revealed pulmonary edema and no gross or microscopic evidence of natural disease. Stomach contents revealed food matter with small white fragments. Analysis of postmortem heart blood showed amlodipine 1,300 ng/ml (therapeutic <20 ng/ml). Benazepril levels were not available.

norvasc tablet benefits

HW/BW and plasma concentrations of catecholamine were significantly increased in TAC mice one week after surgery in comparison with to sham-operated mice. One week after TAC, the HW/BW ratio was significantly lower in the amolodipine but not nifedipine-treated group than in the TAC group. Administration of nifedipine via minipump infusion for one week did not decrease HW/BW ratio. Treatment with amlodpine or benidipine, but not nifedipine, decreased the neonatal rat myocyte protein synthesis induced by phenylephrine stimulation.

Many patients need more than one antihypertensive agent for effective blood pressure (BP) control. Prescription of a fixed-dose combination (FDC) of bisoprolol and amlodipine in one tablet has been shown to significantly improve patient adherence. This non-interventional study investigated the effects on adherence and BP control of switching from a free-dose combination of the two antihypertensive substances to a FDC in a larger patient population.

Amlodipine, a dihydropyridine calcium antagonist has been examined on the rhythmic activity of isolated human coronary arteries. Amlodipine inhibited both the spontaneous rhythmic activity and the rhythmic activity evoked by prostaglandin F2 alpha and endothelin in isolated human coronary arteries. It also inhibited the contraction evoked by potassium depolarization. The action of amlodipine was characterized by slow onset and voltage dependency.

Amlodipine is a potent vasodilator with a long half-life and delayed onset of action that is particularly concerning after an overdose. Vasodilation occurs through stimulation of nitric oxide release with increased cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) production. Methylene buy norvasc blue inhibits guanylate cyclase. This enzyme is responsible for the production of cGMP. Methylene blue also has the ability to scavenge nitric oxide, as well as inhibit nitric oxide synthase. We report the use of methylene blue for refractory shock in a patient with amlodipine toxicity.

Self-monitoring values of blood pressure may better reflect the average buy norvasc long-term blood pressure value than sporadic measurements in the physician's office and be more useful for blood pressure control. In the present study, we compared the results of self-monitoring of blood pressure values, especially in the morning, with office blood pressure, and related these to progression of chronic renal insufficiency and left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). Thirty-four patients were selected from 316 subjects with chronic renal insufficiency (average serum creatinine 1.72 +/- 0.15 mg/dl, mean age 52.6 +/- 3.5 yrs) in accordance with the following criteria (1) office blood pressure was less than 140/90 mmHg, (2) blood pressure was controlled with amlodipine (5-20 mg/day) combined with benazepril (2.5 mg/day), (3) morning blood pressure was greater than 150/90 mmHg at 6-9 AM and (4) LVH had been determined by echocardiography (posterior wall thickness; PWT > or = 12 mm). The patients were assigned to 2 groups at random and were given: (1) guanabenz (GB; 2-8 mg at I I PM, n = 17) or (2) placebo (n = 17). Two years later, the average blood pressure of both groups as measured in the office was not significantly different: however, BP in the morning was significantly reduced from 158 +/- 6 to 134 +/- 4 mmHg in GB treated group (P< 0.001). In 14 of 17 patients in GB treated group, LVH resolved and there was only mild progression of nephropathy (serum creatinine: 1.69 +/- 0.18 to 1.81 +/- 0.19 mg/dl). In 12 of 14 patients in placebo group, whose morning blood pressure remained at greater than 150/90 mmHg, LVH was retained and there was moderate progression of nephropathy (serum creatinine: 1.73 +/- 0.14 to 2.62 +/- 0.50mg/dl). From these results, it is suggested that antihypertensive treatment with combination therapy based on self-monitoring BP is cardio-renoprotective in patients with chronic renal insufficiency and LVH.

The effects of amlodipine (from 0.1 to 3.0 mg/kg) on rats' pressing for rewarding brain stimulation, with and without cocaine administration, were assessed. None of the doses reliably modified the effects of cocaine. Also, amlodipine was given to two groups of rats taking alcohol: one group that was regularly taking a sweetened alcoholic beverage and the other taking an unsweetened alcoholic beverage. The only discernible effects of amlodipine on alcohol intake were associated with the highest dose and only with rats taking the sweetened beverage. The effects of this high dose could easily be attributable to behavioral toxicity elicited by the dose. In contrast, and confirming previous work, isradipine, another calcium buy norvasc channel inhibitor, produced reliable reductions on both cocaine's and alcohol's reinforcing effects. Despite the similarity of isradipine and amlodipine, isradipine apparently has some unique features with respect to cocaine and alcohol.

The risk of myocardial infarction was significantly decreased with an amlodipine-based regimen compared with a non-CCB-based regimen (odds ratio [OR], 0.91; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.84 to 0.99; p = 0.03). The risk of stroke was also significantly decreased (OR, 0.84; 95% CI, 0.79 to 0.90; p < 0.00001). The risk of heart failure increased slightly with marginal significance for an amlodipine-based regimen compared with a non-CCB-based regimen (OR, 1.14; 95% CI, 0.98 to 1.31; p = 0.08). However, when compared overall with β-blockers and diuretics, amlodipine showed a comparable risk buy norvasc . Amlodipine-based regimens demonstrated a 10% risk reduction in overall cardiovascular events (OR, 0.90; 95% CI, 0.82 to 0.99; p = 0.02) and total mortality (OR, 0.95; 95% CI, 0.91 to 0.99; p = 0.01).

A single-blind, run-in, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled comparison trial was conducted to assess the safety and efficacy of low-dose amlodipine 2.5 mg daily, low-dose benazepril 10 mg daily, and the combination of the two drugs at the same doses used once daily in patients (n = 401) with mild to moderate (stages I and II) systemic hypertension. Both monotherapy regimens were shown to significantly reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure compared with baseline placebo values, and the combination regimen was shown to be superior in lowering systolic and diastolic blood pressure when compared with either of the monotherapy regimens. The combination therapy also resulted in a greater percentage of patients having successful clinical response in mean sitting diastolic blood pressure. The amlodipine and benazepril regimen was also shown to be associated with a similar incidence of adverse experiences as the active monotherapy or placebo regimens, although the group given combination therapy appeared to have a lower incidence of edema than the group given amlodipine alone. Low-dose amlodipine (2.5 mg) plus benazepril (10 mg) provides greater blood-pressure-lowering efficacy than buy norvasc either monotherapy, and has an excellent safety profile.

It has been shown that calcium-enriched diets cause a decrease in arterial blood pressure in hypertensive patients and animals. Moreover, it has been suggested that the combination of dietary calcium and calcium antagonists could paradoxically have a synergistic effect in order to decrease arterial blood pressure. The combination of these treatments may also have potential therapeutic benefit in the attenuation of cardiac hypertrophy. In this study, after being weaned at three weeks, male spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) were randomized in four groups of animals. Two of these groups were fed on a normal calcium diet (Ca 1%) and another two groups were fed on a calcium-enriched diet (Ca 2.5%). One of the groups fed on each diet also received amlodipine (1 mg/kg/day) in the drinking water after being weaned. Body weight was measured weekly in all the groups, and arterial blood pressure was also measured in all the 10-, 15-, 20-, and 25-week-old SHR by the tail cuff method. We established the ratio heart weight/body weight x 1000 (R), and we weighed the left ventricle in the 25-week-old animals at the end of the different treatments. The Ca 2.5% diet caused a delay in the development of hypertension in SHR. This effect could not be correlated with alterations in body weight since this diet improved growth in these rats. Amlodipine did not alter growth buy norvasc in SHR. This pharmacological treatment caused a decrease in the arterial blood pressure of the SHR and it intensified the antihypertensive effect of the Ca 2.5% diet. Nevertheless, this drug attenuated the effect of dietary calcium on body weight and when the treatment was prolonged, almodipine also antagonized the effect of dietary calcium on arterial blood pressure. At the end of the different treatments the ratio R and the left ventricular weight were similar in all the groups of animals. Therefore, the use of dietary calcium with a calcium antagonist to control arterial blood pressure seems not to be advisable, and the present data do not prove the usefulness of the mentioned antihypertensive treatments in preventing cardiac hypertrophy.

Amlodipine is a dihydropyridine calcium antagonist that has unique pharmacokinetic properties. The drug is absorbed gradually after oral administration and so produces a gradual vasodilatation, reducing the incidence of side effects such as reflex tachycardia and headache buy norvasc , which can be troublesome with other calcium antagonists. Amlodipine also has a long elimination half-life, which makes it suitable for use on a once-daily basis. Controlled clinical studies have confirmed that a suitable dose regimen of amlodipine for use in angina is to start with 5 mg daily and increase this to 10 mg daily if required to control symptoms. Exercise testing carried out 24 hours post dose has confirmed that once-daily doses of amlodipine provide good anti-anginal and anti-ischaemic efficacy for a full 24 hours, a vital aspect of any therapy for ischaemic heart disease. Amlodipine has been shown to have comparable anti-anginal efficacy to the beta-blocker nadolol taken once daily and the calcium antagonist diltiazem taken 3 times daily. When added to the treatment regimen of patients with uncontrolled chronic stable angina despite treatment with nitrates, beta-blockers or both, amlodipine produces improved anti-anginal efficacy. Amlodipine has also been shown to be consistently effective in patients with vasospastic angina. There has been no evidence of tolerance to the anti-anginal effects of amlodipine in formal clinical trials involving treatment for up to 26 weeks.

We piloted a novel method of assessment of arterial pulsatility Indocin 150 Mg with concurrent high-frequency blood-oxygen level dependent magnetic resonance imaging and noninvasive blood pressure monitoring. This method was able to identify greater transmission of aortic pulsation on propranolol than amlodipine, which warrants further investigation.

To address the epidemic of hypertension in blacks born and living in sub-Saharan Africa, we compared in Indocin 15 Mg a randomised clinical trial (NCT01030458) single-pill combinations of old and new antihypertensive drugs in patients (30-69 years) with uncomplicated hypertension (140-179/90-109 mm Hg). After ≥4 weeks off treatment, 183 of 294 screened patients were assigned to once daily bisoprolol/hydrochlorothiazide 5/6.25 mg (n=89; R) or amlodipine/valsartan 5/160 mg (n=94; E) and followed up for 6 months. To control blood pressure (<140/<90 mm Hg), bisoprolol and amlodipine could be doubled (10 mg per day) and α-methyldopa (0.5-2 g per day) added. Sitting blood pressure fell by 19.5/12.0 mm Hg in R patients and by 24.8/13.2 mm Hg in E patients and heart rate decreased by 9.7 beats per minute in R patients with no change in E patients (-0.2 beats per minute). The between-group differences (R minus E) were 5.2 mm Hg (P<0.0001) systolic, 1.3 mm Hg (P=0.12) diastolic, and 9.6 beats per minute (P<0.0001). In 57 R and 67 E patients with data available at all visits, these estimates were 5.5 mm Hg (P<0.0001) systolic, 1.8 mm Hg (P=0.07) diastolic and 9.8 beats per minute (P<0.0001). In R compared with E patients, 45 vs 37% (P=0.13) proceeded to the higher dose of randomised treatment and 33 vs 9% (P<0.0001) had α-methyldopa added. There were no between-group differences in symptoms except for ankle oedema in E patients (P=0.012). In conclusion, new compared with old drugs lowered systolic blood pressure more and therefore controlled hypertension better in native African black patients.

55.2% of the patients received Amlodipine besylate in combination with other antihypertensive agents. The mean baseline blood pressure was 168. Lexapro 75 Mg 0/96.7 mmHg and the mean blood pressure reduction achieved at the end of the observation period was -28.5/-14.5 mmHg. In 80.3% of the total population, a reduction to diastolic blood pressure values of < 90 mmHg was achieved. A reduction to systolic blood pressure values of < 140 mmHg was obtained in 41.6% of the patients. Adverse events were reported by only 1.2% of the patients. For the vast majority of the patients, efficacy (96.6%) and safety (98.9%) were rated "very good" or "good" by their physicians. 24-hour efficacy with once daily dosing was given as the most important argument for using Amlodipine besylate.

Hypertensives in the chronic stage of cerebral infarction were enrolled. These subjects included patients of atherothrombotic cerebral Diamox Drug Information infarction or lacunar infarction. The patients received candesartan cilexetil (candesartan group) or amlodipine (amlodipine group). The blood pressure and serum ADMA concentration were measured and compared before the treatment commenced and at 1-3 months after the treatment commenced.

The paper describes a clinical case of the efficacy of a fixed-dose combination of perindopril and amlodipine used in a hypertensive patient. It shows its clinical effectiveness with no impact on blood lipid and glucose levels. 24-hour blood pressure monitoring revealed a reduction in daily blood pressure, including its variability, in pulse wave propagation velocity and central aortic pressure.

Ivabradine (Procoralan), a new If inhibitor which acts specifically and in a dose-dependent manner on the pacemaker activity of the sinoatrial node, is a pure heart rate lowering agent. It slows the diastolic depolarization slope of sinoatrial node cells and reduces heart rate at rest and during exercise. It has shown anti-ischaemic and anti-anginal activity at recommended doses of 5 and 7.5 mg bid in patients with stable angina. Ivabradine is as effective as atenolol and amlodipine to prevent or attenuate exercise-induced ischaemia in these patients. It is well tolerated, with transient visual symptoms being the main drug-related adverse event. These symptoms may be linked to the presence in the retina of ion channels similar to cardiac If channels and did not adversely affect the tolerability of the drug for most patients. In Belgium, ivabradine is currently reimbursed in patients with stable angina and normal sinus rhythm who do not tolerate beta-blockers and non-dihydropyridine calcium antagonists or in whom these treatments are contra-indicated.

The effect of antihypertensives on serum lipids in newly diagnosed male essential hypertensive patients was studied. The participants (n = 99) were randomly allocated to receive amlodipine, atenolol, enalapril, hydrochlorothiazide, and a combination of amlodipine and atenolol. Lipid parameters were estimated before and after 8 weeks of therapy. The atenolol and thiazide group showed a significant increase in triglycerides (TGs) and very-low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (VLDL-C). High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) and HDL-C to low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) ratio were significantly increased and TC to HDL-C ratio was significantly decreased in the amlodipine and amlodipine- atenolol combination groups. In the enalapril group, we found a significant reduction in TC, TGs, VLDL-C, non-HDL-C, and TG to HDL-C ratio after treatment. It can be concluded from the present study that some drugs have beneficial effects on the lipid status, whereas others adversely affect the lipid status in hypertension.

There was mild impairment of FMD at baseline (7.3 +/- 0.6%). The change in FMD from baseline was significant only for quinapril (1.8 +/- 1%, p < 0.02). No change was seen with losartan (0.8 +/- 1.1%, p = 0.57), amlodipine (0.3 +/- 0.9%, p = 0.97) or enalapril (-0.2 +/- 0.8%, p = 0.84). No significant change in nitroglycerin-induced dilation occurred with drug therapy. The improvement in quinapril response was not seen in those with the DD ACE genotype (0.5 +/- 2.1%) but was seen in those with the ID and II genotype (3.3 +/- 1.2 and 3.2 +/- 1.9%, respectively, p = 0.03).
