Single Tablet Uses Two Drugs to Treat High Blood Pressure

 

June 25, 2007

Exforge, a single-tablet combination of two of the most prescribed high blood pressure medicines, is cleared for use in patients who suffer from high blood pressure.

Exforge is the first medicine of its kind to combine the active ingredients of an angiotensin receptor blocker, Diovan (valsartan) and a calcium channel blocker - Norvasc (amlodipine) - with the convenience of a single, once-daily tablet.

The FDA cleared the drug in 2007.
