All forms


Treatment of essential hypertension. PERINDOPRIL / INDAPAMIDE SANDOZ 4 mg / 1.25 mg tablet is indicated in patients whose blood pressure is insufficiently controlled by perindopril alone.

DOSAGE PERINDOPRIL / INDAPAMIDE SANDOZ 4 mg / 1.25 mg Tablet Box of 30

Oral way.

One tablet PERINDOPRIL / INDAPAMIDE SANDOZ 4 mg / 1.25 mg once daily, preferably in the morning and before meals.

If possible, it is recommended to individually adjust the dosages of each of the two components. PERINDOPRIL / INDAPAMIDE SANDOZ 4 mg / 1.25 mg should be used when blood pressure is insufficiently controlled by PERINDOPRIL / INDAPAMIDE SANDOZ 2 mg / 0.625 mg, tablet (if available). In clinically appropriate cases, direct switching from monotherapy to PERINDOPRIL / INDAPAMIDE combination may be considered.

Elderly (see section Warnings and precautions for use )

Treatment should be initiated according to the blood pressure response and the state of renal function.

Patients with renal impairment (see Warnings and Precautions section )

In severe renal impairment (creatinine clearance <30 ml / min), treatment is contraindicated. In patients with moderate renal impairment (creatinine clearance 30-60 ml / min), initiation of therapy at the appropriate dosage of free combination is recommended. In patients with a creatinine clearance greater than or equal to 60 ml / min, no dose adjustment is required.

Current medical practice includes periodic monitoring of creatinine and potassium.

Patients with hepatic impairment (see section 4.3). Contraindications, Warnings and Precautions for Use and Pharmacokinetic Properties

In case of severe hepatic impairment, treatment is contraindicated.

In patients with moderate hepatic impairment, no dose adjustment is required.

Child and teenager

PERINDOPRIL / INDAPAMIDE SANDOZ 4 mg / 1.25 mg tablet should not be used in children and adolescents because the efficacy and safety of perindopril in children and adolescents, alone or in combination, have not been established.

Perindopril / Indapamide Sandoz side effects

Perindopril administration inhibits the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone axis and tends to reduce indapamide-induced potassium loss. Two per cent of patients treated with PERINDOPRIL / INDAPAMIDE SANDOZ 4 mg / 1.25 mg tablets experienced hypokalaemia (potassium level <3.4 mmol / l).

The following adverse effects could be observed during treatment and classified according to the following frequencies:

Very common (≥1 / 10), common (≥1 / 100, <1/10), uncommon (≥1 / 1, 000, <1/100), uncommon (≥1 / 10, 000, <1/1000) ), very rare (<1 / 10, 000), not known (can not be estimated from the available data).

Blood and lymphatic system disorders

Very rare :

Thrombocytopenia, leukopenia, neutropenia, agranulocytosis, medullary aplasia, hemolytic anemia.

Respiratory, thoracic and mediastinal disorders

Common: A dry cough has been reported with the use of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors. It is characterized by its persistence, as well as by its disappearance at the end of treatment. The iatrogenic etiology should be considered in the presence of this symptom. Dyspnea.

· Elevation of serum uric acid and blood glucose during treatment.

· Moderate increase in plasma urea and creatinine, reversible upon discontinuation of treatment. This increase is more frequently encountered in cases of renal artery stenosis, diuretic-treated hypertension, and renal failure.

· Elevation of plasma potassium levels, usually transient.

Rare: increased serum calcium.
