pharmachologic effect

CO-EXFORGE is a combination of three antihypertensive components with a BP control mechanism that complements each other: amlodipine (a derivative of dihydropyridine), a blocker of slow calcium channels, valsartan, an antagonist of angiotensin II receptors and hydrochlorothiazide thiazide diuretic. The combination of these components leads to a more pronounced decrease in blood pressure compared with that on the background of monotherapy with each drug separately.

Amlodipine

Amlodipine, which is part of Co-Exforge, inhibits transmembrane entry of calcium ions into cardiomyocytes and vascular smooth muscle cells. The mechanism of antihypertensive action of amlodipine is associated with a direct relaxing effect on vascular smooth muscle, causing a decrease in round neck and a decrease in blood pressure.
After ingestion in therapeutic doses in patients with arterial hypertension, amlodipine causes dilation of blood vessels, leading to a decrease in blood pressure (in the patient's position "lying" and "standing"). Lowering blood pressure is not accompanied by a significant change in heart rate and catecholamine activity with prolonged use.
Plasma concentrations of the drug correlate with the therapeutic response in both young and elderly patients.
In hypertensive patients with normal renal function, amlodipine at therapeutic doses leads to a decrease in renal vascular resistance, an increase in glomerular filtration rate and effective plasma renal blood flow without changing the filtration fraction and the severity of proteinuria.
As with the use of other slow calcium channel blockers, amlodipine in patients with normal left ventricular function showed a change in hemodynamic cardiac function at rest and during exercise: a slight increase in cardiac index, without a significant effect on the maximum pressure buildup rate in the left ventricle, end-diastolic pressure and volume of the left ventricle. Hemodynamic studies in intact animals and healthy volunteers have shown that a decrease in blood pressure under the influence of amlodipine in the range of therapeutic doses is not accompanied by a negative inotropic effect even when used simultaneously with beta-adrenergic blockers.
Amlodipine does not change the function of the sinoatrial node and does not affect AV conduction in intact animals and healthy volunteers. When using amlodipine in combination with beta-blockers in patients with arterial hypertension or with angina pectoris, a decrease in blood pressure is not accompanied by undesirable changes in electrocardiographic parameters.
The clinical efficacy of amlodipine in patients with stable angina, vasospastic angina, and angiographically confirmed coronary artery disease has been proven.
In a long-term placebo-controlled study (PRAISE-2) in patients with chronic heart failure (III and IV functional class according to the NYHA classification) of non-ischemic etiology, with the use of amlodipine there was an increase in the incidence of pulmonary edema, in the absence of significant differences in the incidence of worsening chronic heart failure versus placebo.
The risk of myocardial infarction or an increase in the severity of angina: rarely when slow calcium channel blockers start therapy or when their dose is increased in patients, especially with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy, severe obstructive coronary artery disease, there was an increase in the frequency, duration and severity of angina or developed angina or developed coronary arteries, increased frequency, duration and severity of angina or developed angina or developed coronary artery disease; myocardium. Arrhythmia (including ventricular tachycardia and atrial fibrillation) has also been noted with the use of slow calcium channel blockers. These adverse events were impossible to differentiate from the natural course of the disease.

Valsartan

Valsartan is an active and specific angiotensin II receptor antagonist, intended for oral administration. It acts selectively on the AT1 receptor subtype, which is responsible for the effects of angiotensin II. Increasing the plasma concentration of unbound angiotensin II due to blockade of AT1 receptors under the influence of valsartan can stimulate unblocked AT2 receptors, which counteract the effects of stimulation of AT1 receptors. Valsartan does not have any pronounced agonistic activity against AT1 receptors. The affinity of valsartan for the AT1 receptor subtype is approximately 20,000 times higher than that for the AT2 receptor subtype.
Valsartan does not inhibit ACE, which converts angiotensin I to angiotensin II and causes the destruction of bradykinin. Because When using angiotensin II antagonists, ACE inhibition and accumulation of bradykinin or substance P do not occur, the development of dry cough is unlikely.
In comparative clinical studies of valsartan with an ACE inhibitor, the incidence of dry cough was significantly lower (p
In the treatment of patients with arterial hypertension with valsartan, a decrease in blood pressure is observed, which is not accompanied by a change in heart rate.
The antihypertensive effect is manifested within 2 hours in most patients after a single dose of valsartan inside. The maximum decrease in blood pressure develops after 4-6 hours. After taking valsartan, the duration of the hypotensive effect lasts for more than 24 hours. With repeated use, the maximum reduction in blood pressure, regardless of the dose, is usually reached within 2-4 weeks and maintained at the reached level during long-term therapy. Abrupt cessation of valsartan is not accompanied by a sharp increase in blood pressure or other undesirable clinical consequences. The use of valsartan in patients with chronic heart failure (functional class II-IV according to the NYHA classification) leads to a significant reduction in the number of hospitalizations for cardiovascular diseases (which is especially pronounced in patients not receiving ACE inhibitors or beta-adrenergic blockers). When taking valsartan in patients with left ventricular failure (stable clinical course) or in violation of left ventricular function after myocardial infarction, a decrease in cardiovascular mortality has been observed.

Hydrochlorothiazide

The point of application of the action of thiazide diuretics are distal convoluted renal tubules. When thiazide diuretics are exposed to highly sensitive receptors of the distal tubules of the cortical layer of the kidneys, the reabsorption of sodium ions (Na +) and chlorine (Сl-) is suppressed. Suppression of the co-transport system of Na + and Сl-, apparently, occurs due to the competition for the binding sites of Cl-ions in this system. As a result, the excretion of sodium ions and chlorine increases approximately equally. As a result of the diuretic effect, a decrease in BCC is observed, as a result of which renin activity increases, aldosterone secretion, kidney excretion of potassium, and, consequently, a decrease in serum potassium content.
Amlodipine + valsartan + hydrochlorothiazide.
When using triple combination therapy with amlodipine + valsartan + hydrochlorothiazide, a more pronounced decrease in systolic and diastolic blood pressure was noted compared with the use of double combinations: valsartan + hydrochlorothiazide, amlodipine + valsartan and amlodipine + hydrochlorothiazide. In patients with grade II and III arterial hypertension (baseline mean blood pressure of 170/107 mm Hg) when using combination therapy with amlodipine + valsartan + hydrochlorothiazide in a daily dose of 10 mg + 320 mg + 25 mg for 8 weeks, the average decrease in systolic and diastolic blood pressure was 39.7 / 24.7 mmHg. (compared with 32.0 / 19.7 mm Hg, 33.5 / 21.5 mm Hg, 31.5 / 19.5 mm Hg with a combination therapy of valsartan + hydrochlorothiazide at a dose of 320 mg + 25 mg, amlodipine + valsartan at a dose 10 mg + 320 mg and amlodipine + hydrochlorothiazide at a dose of 10 mg + 25 mg, respectively).
The greatest antihypertensive effect of Co-Exforge is observed 2 weeks after the start of the drug in the maximum individual oral dose.
With the use of Co-Exforge, the achievement of target blood pressure (less than 140/90 mm Hg) was noted in 71% of patients, compared with 45-54% with the use of double combinations.
After taking the drug, the antihypertensive effect lasts for 24 hours.
The therapeutic efficacy of Co-Exforge does not depend on the age, gender and race of patients.

Co-exforge, indications for use

Arterial hypertension II and III degrees.

- 10 mg + 160 mg + 12.5 mg (1 tablet containing amlodipine + valsartan + hydrochlorothiazide in doses of 10 mg + 160 mg + 12.5 mg);
- 10 mg + 320 mg + 25 mg (2 tablets containing amlodipine + valsartan + hydrochlorothiazide in doses of 5 mg + 160 mg + 12.5 mg).
The maximum antihypertensive effect of the drug is observed 2 weeks after increasing the dose. The maximum dose of the drug is 10 mg + 320 mg + 25 mg /
Patients over 65 years of age do not require dose adjustment.
Since the safety and efficacy of Co-Exforge in children and adolescents (under 18) have not yet been established, the drug is not recommended for use in this category of patients.
In patients with mild and moderate renal dysfunction (CC more than 30 ml / min) and liver (5-9 points on the Child-Pugh scale), dose adjustment is not required.

special instructions

Impaired renal function. When using the drug Co-Exforge, it is necessary to regularly monitor the content of creatinine and potassium in the blood plasma.
Cancel beta-blockers. If it is necessary to cancel beta-blockers before starting therapy with Co-Exforge, the dose of beta-blockers should be reduced gradually. Since the beta-blocker is not included in the composition of Co-Exforge, the use of the drug does not prevent the development of withdrawal syndrome that occurs when the therapy with beta-blockers is abruptly discontinued.
A pronounced decrease in blood pressure. In controlled studies with the use of Co-Exforge at the maximum daily dose (10 mg + 320 mg + 25 mg) in patients with grade II and III arterial hypertension, in 1.7% of cases there was a pronounced decrease in blood pressure, including orthostatic hypotension (compared 1 , 8, 0.4 and 0.2% on the background of combination therapy with valsartan + hydrochlorothiazide at a dose of 320 mg + 25 mg, amlodipine + valsartan at a dose of 10 mg + 320 mg and amlodipine + hydrochlorothiazide at a dose of 10 mg + 25 mg, respectively . In the event of arterial hypotension, the patient should be laid with raised legs, if necessary, in / in infusion of 0.9% sodium chloride solution. After stabilization of AD, treatment with Co-Exforge can be continued.
Hyponatremia and / or reduction in BCC. Patients with activated RAAS (for example, with a BCC deficit and / or hyponatremia, as well as patients receiving high doses of diuretics), while taking angiotensin receptor antagonists, may develop symptomatic arterial hypotension. Before starting treatment with Co-Exforge, the sodium content in the body and / or the BCC should be corrected or therapy should be started under close medical supervision. When using the drug Co-Exforge, it is necessary to regularly monitor the content of electrolytes of blood plasma.
Changes in the concentration of potassium in the blood plasma. In controlled studies when using the combination amlodidine + valsartan + hydrochlorothiazide in a maximum daily dose of 10 mg + 320 mg + 25 mg in patients with moderate to severe arterial hypertension, the frequency of development of hypokalemia (plasma potassium content less than 3.5 mmol / l) was 9.9% compared with 24.5, 6.6 and 2.7% during combination therapy with amlodipine + hydrochlorothiazide at a dose of 10 mg + 25 mg, valsartan + hydrochlorothiazide at a dose of 320 mg + 25 mg and amlodipine + valsartan at a dose 10 mg + 320 mg, respectively. The frequency of discontinuation of therapy due to the development of hypokalemia was 0.2% (1 patient) in the Co-Exforge and amlodipine + hydrochlorothiazide groups. In patients treated with Co-Exforge, hyperkalemia (potassium content in the blood plasma of more than 5.7 mmol / l) was observed in 0.4% of cases (compared to 0.20.7% with the use of double combinations). With the use of Co-Exforge in a controlled study, the mutually opposite effects of valsartan at a dose of 320 mg per day and hydrochlorothiazide at a dose of 25 mg per day on serum potassium were practically counterbalanced in many patients. In other cases, patients had either hypo- or hyperkalemia. When using the drug Co-Exforge is necessary to regularly monitor the content of potassium in the blood plasma.
Systemic lupus erythematosus. With the use of thiazide diuretics, including hydrochlorothiazide, it has been reported that the course or the development of systemic lupus erythematosus is exacerbated.
Other metabolic disorders. Thiazide diuretics may impair glucose tolerance and increase plasma concentrations of cholesterol, triglycerides, and uric acid.
When using thiazide diuretics, calcium excretion may decrease, leading to the development of moderate hypercalcemia. Severe hypercalcemia during therapy with Co-Exforge may indicate latent hyperparathyroidism.
Influence on the ability to drive vehicles and work with mechanisms. Some side effects of the drug, incl. dizziness or visual impairment, may adversely affect the ability to drive vehicles and perform potentially hazardous activities that require increased concentration of attention and speed of psychomotor reactions.

Co-Exforge, interaction

Amlodipine

In monotherapy with amlodipine, there is no clinically significant interaction with thiazide diuretics, beta-adrenergic blockers, ACE inhibitors, long-acting nitrates, nitroglycerin for sublingual use, digoxin, warfarin, atorvastatin, sildenafil, antacid preparations (anhydrophic, ancid, antifaccin, antacid glucose). , NSAIDs, antibiotics and hypoglycemic drugs for oral administration.
Inhibitors of the isoenzyme CYP 3A4. With the use of amlodipine together with diltiazem, slower metabolism of amlodipine is observed in elderly patients, probably due to inhibition of CYP3A4 isoenzyme, which leads to an increase in plasma concentration of amlodipine by approximately 50% and an increase in its systemic exposure. With the use of amlodipine together with powerful inhibitors of CYP3A4 (for example, ketoconazole, itraconazole and ritonavir), a marked increase in systemic exposure to amlodipine is possible.
Inductors of CYP3A4 isofermept. Since the use of amlodipine together with inducers of CYP3A4 isoenzyme (for example, carbamazepine, phenobarbital, phenytoin, fosfenitoin, primidon, rifampicin, grapefruit juice, herbal preparations containing St. John's wort), can cause a marked decrease in blood plasma, containing St. John's wort hollowed out), can lead to a decrease in concentration in the blood plasma, containing St. John's wort hollowed out), with application of St. John's wort), with application of St. John's Wort) CYP3A4, its plasma content should be monitored.

Valsartan

It was established that in monotherapy with valsartan, there is no clinically significant interaction with the following drugs: cimetidine, warfarin, furosemide, digoxin, atenolol, indomethacin, hydrochlorothiazide, amlodipine, glibenclamide.
When used simultaneously with dietary supplements containing potassium, potassium-sparing diuretics, potassium-containing salt substitutes, or with other drugs that may cause an increase in blood potassium (for example, with heparin), caution should be exercised and regular monitoring of the capillary blood levels should be carried out.
When using valsartan with NSAIDs, it is possible to reduce the antihypertensive effect of valsartan.

Hydrochlorothiazide

Lithium. With simultaneous use with ACE inhibitors and diuretics, cases of a reversible increase in lithium plasma concentration and its toxic action have been reported. Therefore, with simultaneous use of hydrochlorothiazide and lithium preparations, it is recommended to control the concentration of lithium in the blood plasma.
Peripheral muscle relaxants. Thiazide diuretics, including hydrochlorothiazide, potentiate the action of peripheral muscle relaxants.
NSAIDs. It is possible to reduce the diuretic and antihypertensive effects of the thiazide component of Co-Exforge when used simultaneously with NSAIDs, for example, with acetylsalicylic acid, indomethacin. Concomitant hypovolemia can lead to the development of acute renal failure.
Drugs that can cause an increase in the content of potassium in the blood plasma. The risk of hypokalemia increases with the simultaneous appointment of other diuretics, GCS, ACTH, amphotericin B, carbenoxolone and acetylsalicylic acid (at a dose of more than 3 g). Care should be taken with simultaneous use of Co-Exforge with potassium salts, potassium-sparing diuretics, potassium-containing substitutes for edible salt, as well as drugs that can cause an increase in blood potassium (for example, heparin).
Cardiac glycosides. Thiazide diuretics can cause undesirable effects such as hypokalemia or hypomagnesemia; These conditions increase the risk of developing arrhythmias with simultaneous use of cardiac glycosides.
Hypoglycemic agents for oral administration and insulin. When using the drug in patients with diabetes mellitus, it may be necessary to adjust the dose of insulin or hypoglycemic agents for oral administration. Since the use of hydrochlorothiazide together with metformin may develop lactic acidosis (due to dysfunction during hydrochlorothiazide therapy), caution should be exercised when using the drug Co-Exforge in patients receiving treatment with metformin.
Anticholinergics. It is possible to increase the bioavailability of thiazide diuretic with simultaneous use of m-anticholinergics (for example, atropine, biperiden), which, apparently, is associated with a decrease in gastrointestinal motility and slower gastric emptying rate.
Methyldopa Cases of hemolytic anemia have been reported with simultaneous administration of hydrochlorothiazide and methyldopa.
Kolestiramin reduces the absorption of thiazide diuretics, including hydrochlorothiazide.
Vitamin D and calcium salts. When thiazide diuretics are used together, including hydrochlorothiazide, with vitamin D or calcium salts, an increase in serum calcium levels is possible.
Cyclosporine. Simultaneous administration of cyclosporine may increase the risk of developing hyperuricemia and the appearance of symptoms resembling the worsening of gout.
Carbamazepine. In patients taking hydrochlorothiazide simultaneously with carbamazepine may develop hyponatremia. Since in patients receiving hydrochlorothiazide and carbamazepine at the same time, the development of hyponatremia is possible, when administering Co-Exforge along with carbamazepine, appropriate plasma levels of sodium should be monitored.
Other types of interaction. The simultaneous appointment of thiazide diuretics, including hydrochlorothiazide, may lead to an increase in the frequency of hypersensitivity reactions to allopurinol; increased risk of side effects of amantadine; increased hyperglycemic action of diazoxide; reducing kidney excretion of cytotoxic agents (eg, cyclophosphamide, methotrexate) and potentiating their myelosuppressive action.

Overdose

Data on cases of overdose of the drug are currently not available.
Symptoms: in case of valsartan overdose, a pronounced decrease in blood pressure and dizziness can be expected.
An overdose of amlodipine can lead to excessive peripheral vasodilation and possible reflex tachycardia. I also report on the occurrence of a pronounced and prolonged decrease in blood pressure, up to the development of a fatal shock.
The main clinical manifestations of hydrochlorothiazide overdose are symptoms associated with electrolyte loss (hypokalemia, hypochloremia) and dehydration due to diuresis stimulation. The most common symptoms of overdose are nausea and drowsiness. Hypokalemia may be accompanied by muscle spasms. With the concomitant use of cardiac glycosides (or other antiarrhythmic drugs), hypokalemia can increase cardiac arrhythmia.
Treatment: in case of accidental overdose, induce vomiting (if the drug has been taken recently) or gastric lavage. The use of activated carbon in healthy volunteers immediately or 2 hours after taking amlodipine significantly reduced its absorption. In case of a pronounced decrease in the patient's blood pressure, the patient should be laid with raised legs, and active measures should be taken to increase blood pressure, maintain the activity of the cardiovascular system, including regular monitoring of the function of the heart and respiratory system, BCC and the amount of urine released. In the absence of contraindications to restore vascular tone and blood pressure, it is possible to use (with caution) a vasoconstrictor. In / in the introduction of solutions of calcium salts can be effective to eliminate BPC.
Removal of valsartan and amlodipine during hemodialysis is unlikely. Hydrochlorothiazide can be removed from the systemic circulation by hemodialysis.
