The fixed combination of verapamil SR/trandolapril (Tarka®) - is an effective, well-tolerated therapy for the treatment of essential hypertension in those who require more than one agent to achieve optimal blood pressure (BP) control. The endpoints is compliance with Tarka® treatment by number/percentage of patients continued on fixed combination Tarka therapy after six months. This Post Marketing Observational Study (PMOS) will be conducted in a prospective, single-arm, single-country, multicenter format. The investigational sites will be the cardiologists, the doctors of internal medicine and general practicians . Since this will be a PMOS, Tarka® will be prescribed in usual manner in accordance with the terms of the local market authorization with regards to dose, population and indication as well as the local guidelines.
Follow-up of patients enables 4 patient visits during this period. For these reasons, the most likely visits are defined as "Inclusion visit" at which treatment with Tarka® is to be initiated, and then "Follow-up visit Week 4-6", "Follow-up visit Month 3 " and "Follow-up visit Month 6", although dates will depend only on the decision of the physician. For these reasons, the most likely visits are defined as "S/V", "F1", "F2", "F3". The end point is compliance with Tarka® treatment by number/percentage of patients continued on fixed combination Tarka therapy after six months.

A condition in pregnant women with elevated systolic (>140 mm Hg) and diastolic (>90 mm Hg) blood pressure on at least two occasions 6 h apart. HYPERTENSION complicates 8-10% of all pregnancies, generally after 20 weeks of gestation. Gestational hypertension can be divided into several broad categories according to the complexity and associated symptoms, such as EDEMA; PROTEINURIA; SEIZURES; abnormalities in BLOOD COAGULATION and liver functions.
The active metabolite of ENALAPRIL and a potent intravenously administered angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor. It is an effective agent for the treatment of essential hypertension and has beneficial hemodynamic effects in heart failure. The drug produces renal vasodilation with an increase in sodium excretion.
A selective serotonin receptor antagonist with weak adrenergic receptor blocking properties. The drug is effective in lowering blood pressure in essential hypertension. It also inhibits platelet aggregation. It is well tolerated and is particularly effective in older patients.
