Hypertension: The amlodipine component is indicated for the first-line treatment of hypertension and can be used as the sole agent to control blood pressure (BP) in the majority of patients. Patients not adequately controlled on a single antihypertensive agent (other than amlodipine) may benefit from the addition of amlodipine component of amlodipine/atorvastatin, in the same manner as they would benefit from the addition of amlodipine alone.
Dosage/Direction for Use
The dosage range for amlodipine/atorvastatin is 5 mg/10 mg to a maximum dose of 10 mg/80 mg once daily. The starting dose and maintenance dose should be individualized on the basis of both effectiveness and tolerance for each individual component in the treatment of hypertension/angina and dyslipidemia. Current treatment guidelines should be consulted to establish treatment goals for patients based on their baseline characteristics. Doses may be taken at any time of day with or without food.
