2. What is LERCADIP and what is it used for?

LERCADIP 10 mg film tablets; yellow, round, one-face notched, two-sided, homogenous, film-coated tablets.

The LERCADIP is presented in boxes of 30 tablets containing 10 mg of lercanidipine hydrochloride as the active ingredient.

LERCADIP is a calcium antagonist of the dihydropyridine group and stops the flow of calcium from the cell membrane into the heart muscle and smooth muscle cells. The antihypertensive effect is due to the fact that it decreases blood pressure with its direct relaxation effect on vascular smooth muscles.

LERCADIP is used to treat mild to moderate hypertension (high blood pressure).

4.2. Posology and method of administration The

recommended dosage is 10 mg orally, at least 15 minutes prior to meals; the dose may be increased to 20 mg depending on the response of the patient.

Dose titration should be gradual because it may take about 2 weeks for the maximal antihypertensive effect to be observed.

Some individuals who cannot be adequately controlled by a single antihypertensive agent may benefit from the addition of LERCADIP (R) to the treatment of a beta-adrenoceptor blocker (atenolol), diuretic (hydrochlorothiazide) or an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (captopril or enalapril).

Because the dose-response curve is perpendicular, it is unlikely to increase efficacy with high doses, since it reaches a level between 20 and 30 mg; On the other hand, side effects may increase.

Method of

administration: Used once a day orally.

Pediatric population: Since

there is no clinical trial in patients under 18 years of age, its use in children is not currently recommended.

Geriatric population: Although

pharmacokinetic data and clinical trials suggest no need for any daily dosing, special attention should be given to the treatment of elderly people.
