Detailed description

Treatment should be initiated with 5 mg once a day.

If optimum control of blood pressure has not been achieved after at least 3 weeks of treatment, the daily dose should be increased to 10 mg, which has been determined to be the most effective daily dose.

However, in a small number of patients it might be necessary to increase the daily dose to 20 mg (recommended maximum dose) or preferably, to consider combination therapy with a diuretic.

It has not been assessed whether hypertensive patients would benefit from a combination of imidapril with other antihypertensive therapies.

Dosage considerations

It is recommended that the tablets be taken at about the same time of day about 15 minutes before meals, conditions under which efficacy has been demonstrated.

Active ingredient

The hypotensive effect of imidapril in hypertension appears to result primarily from the suppression of the plasma renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system.
