Pharmakokinetika Eksforzha Pharmacokinetics properties are characterized by linearity. As pharmacokinetic interaction between valsartany and amlodipiny is absent, the pharmacokinetics for each drug separately is given below.
Posle of intake of an amlodipin in therapeutic doses the maximum concentration of an amlodipin in blood plasma is reached in 6-12 hours. Values of absolute bioavailability by calculations are between 64% and 80%. Meal does not affect bioavailability of an amlodipin. The volume of distribution is about 21 l/kg. 97.5 the % of the circulating drug contacts proteins of plasma. Amlodipin intensively (90%) is metabolized in a liver with formation of active metabolites. Removal of an amlodipin from plasma has two-phase character with terminal elimination half-life from 30 to 50 hours. Equilibrium concentration in plasma are reached after long use within 7-8 days. Ten percent of not changed amlodipin and 60% of an amlodipin in the form of metabolites are removed with urine.
Posle of intake of one valsartan the maximum concentration of a valsartan is reached in 2-3 hours. The average absolute bioavailability is 23%. Valsartan has the multiexponential nature of parameters of removal (t 1/2α & lt, 1 h and t 1/2 ß about 9 h). Food reduces bioavailability (on AUC value) for 40% and the maximum concentration in blood plasma (Cmax) honor a valsartan for 50% though almost in 8 h after reception of concentration of a valsartan in blood plasma are identical as in at meal, and on an empty stomach. This reduction of AUC, however, is not followed by clinically significant reduction of therapeutic effect, valsartan, thus, it is possible to appoint or with meal or on an empty stomach. In an equilibrium state the volume of distribution of a valsartan after intravenous administration is 17 l that ukazyvt on lack of extensive distribution of a valsartan in fabric. Valsartan highly contacts proteins of serum (94-97%), mainly serum albumine. Valsartan is not exposed to the significant metabolism since only about 20% of a dose are defined in the form of metabolites. The hydroxyl metabolite is identified in plasma in low concentration (less than 10% of AUC of a valsartan). This metabolite pharmacological is active. Vasartan is brought generally in not changed view with a stake (about 83% of a dose) and generally in not changed view with urine (about 13% of a dose). Posle of intravenous administration, plasma clearance of a valsartan makes about 2 l/h and its renal clearance is 0.62 l/h (about 30% of the general clearance). Elimination half-life of a valsartan makes 6 hours.
After drug Eksforzh intake the maximum concentration of a valsartan and amlodipin are reached in 3 and 6-8 hours, respectively. Speed and extent of absorption of Eksforzha are equivalent to bioavailability of a valsartan and an amlodipin at reception of each of them in the form of tablets.
of Eksforzh is a combination of two antihypertensive substances with the mechanism of control of arterial blood pressure supplementing each other at patients with essential hypertensia: amlodipin belongs to the class of antagonists of calcium and valsartan to a class of drugs of antagonists of angiotensin II. The combination of these ingredients has additive antihypertensive effect, reducing arterial blood pressure more than each component separately.
At reception of Eksforzha in a single dose the antihypertensive effect remains during 24 h. At long use the effect of Eksforzha remains during 1 year. Sudden cancellation of Eksforzha is not followed by fast increase in arterial blood pressure. At patients at whom arterial blood pressure was adequately controlled amlodipiny, but at which extremely profound hypostasis was observed, at combination therapy the same control of arterial blood pressure was reached with less profound hypostasis. Age, sex and race do not affect efficiency of Ekforzha.
– treatment of essential hypertensia at inefficiency of monotherapy
the Route of administration and doses
Patients at whom arterial blood pressure does not give in to adequate control at use only of one amlodipin (or other blocker of calcium channels of derivative dihydropyridine) or only one valsartan (or other blocker of retsepotor of angiotensin II) can be transferred to combination therapy by the drug Eksforzh. The recommended dose – 1 tablet a day (5 mg of an amlodipn and 80 mg of a valsartan or 5 mg of an amlodipin and 160 mg of a valsartan, or 10 mg of an amlodipin and 160 mg of a valsartan). At clinical compliance the direct transition from monotherapy to a combination with the fixed dose can be considered.
For convenience, the patients receiving valsartan and amlodipin in separate tablets can be transferred to Eksforzh containing these components in the same doses. Eksforzh it is possible to accept with food or irrespective of meal with a small amount of water.
Side effects are given according to their frequency, using the following concepts: very often (≥ 1/10), it is frequent (& gt, 1/100, ≤ 1/10), infrequently (& gt, 1/1000, ≤ 1/100), is rare (& gt, 1/10000, ≤ 1/1000), is very rare (& lt, 1/10000), including separate messages.

At use of Eksforzha is safe a combination to thiazide diuretics, beta-blockers, inhibitors of the angiotezin-turning enzyme, is long the operating nitrates, sublingual nitroglycerine, digoxin, warfarin, atorvastatiny, sildenafily, маалоксом®, Cimetidinum, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, antibiotics and oral hypoglycemic drugs.
And there is also no clinically significant interaction with the following drugs: Cimetidinum, warfarin, furosemide, digoxin, atenolol, indometacin, hydrochlorothiazide, amlodipin, glibenclamide.
At simultaneous use with the dietary supplements containing potassium, kaliysberegayushchy diuretics, kaliysoderzhashchy substitutes of salt or with other drugs which can cause increase in potassium concentration in blood (for example, with heparin) the care and frequent definition of potassium concentration in blood is required.
Patients with deficiency of sodium and/or reduction (volume of the circulating
U of patients with uncomplicated hypertensia was observed excessive hypotension. At patients with the system activated renin-angiotensin-aldosteronovoy (in such cases as deficit of OCK and/or salts at the patients receiving diuretics in high doses) who receive blockers of angiotenzinovy receptors, development of symptomatic arterial hypotension is possible. Correction of this state before purpose of Eksforzha or careful medical observation at the beginning of therapy is recommended. If at reception of Eksforzha the hypotension is observed, then the patient should be placed in horizontal position, if necessary to appoint intravenous infusion of normal saline solution. Treatment should be continued until stabilization of arterial blood pressure.
At simultaneous use with the dietary supplements containing potassium, kaliysberegayushchy diuretics, kaliysoderzhashchy substitutes of salt, or with other drugs which can cause increase in potassium concentration in blood (for example, with heparin) is required care and frequent definition of potassium concentration in blood.
Abnormal liver functions
Extra care should be observed when assigning Eksforzha to patients with diseases of a liver and obstructive diseases of bilious ways.
The renal failure
from easy to moderate extent of dose adjustment of Eksforzha is not required to Patients with renal failures.
Stenosis of aortal and mitral valves, subaortic hypertrophic stenosis
the Extra care is shown for the patients having an aortal or mitral stenosis, or a subaortic hypertrophic stenosis.
Pregnancy and a lactation
of Eksforzh it should not be appointed to women who plan pregnancy. The doctor has to warn the woman about potential risk when assigning Eksforzha at pregnancy. If in the course of therapy the pregnancy is established, administration of drug needs to be stopped immediately.

Is recommended to be careful during the driving of the car and control of mechanisms.
the Profound hypotension with dizziness and also the accruing perefirichesky vazodilatation and reflex tachycardia.
It was reported about the considerable and potentially prolonged system hypotension, up to shock and a fatal outcome.
If administration of drug happened recently, it is necessary to cause vomiting or to carry out gastric lavage. Absorption of Eksforzha considerably decreases when using activated carbon at once or for 2 hours after reception.
Clinically significant arterial hypotension caused by overdose of Eksforzha demands active support of a condition of a cardiovascular system, including constant control of warm and respiratory function, raising of extremities and attention to the volume of the circulating liquid and urination. For restoration of a vascular tone and blood pressure there can be useful a vasoconstrictor, when accounting lack of contraindications for its use. For lifting the siege of calcium channels there can be reasonable an intravenous administration of calcium of a gluconate.
