Condition(s) targeted: Primary Hypertension

Intervention: Metoprolol XL 50mg + Amlodipine 5mg (Drug); Metoprolol XL 25 mg + Amlodipine 2.5mg (Drug); Metoprolol XL 50mg (Drug); Metoprolol XL 25 mg (Drug); Amlodipine 5mg (Drug)

Phase: Phase 4

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: AstraZeneca


This is a randomised, open-label; parallel group, multicentric study comparing the efficacy and safety of fixed-dose-combinations of Metoprolol XL plus Amlodipine with individual components of the combination. SelomaxTM50/5 will also be compared with SelomaxTM 25/2. 5 in lowering of BP (SBP and DBP) in Indian patients with essential hypertension. Male and female patients of essential hypertension aged between 18-80 years will be studied. The patients should not have a history of prior cardiovascular disease.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Five-arm, Randomised, Open Label, Multi-centre, Prospective Study to Compare the Efficacy, Safety and Tolerability of Metoprolol XL Plus Amlodipine Combination (Selomax TM) With Metoprolol XL and Amlodipine as Individual Components in Management of Hypertension in Indian Patients.

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
