More information about Sevikar HCT
Sevikar HCT is a three-in-one daily super pill that can treat high blood pressure in a single potent dose. Combining the effects of three different medications, Sevikar HCT allows patients who usually take multiple high blood pressure pills on a daily basis to take one single daily pill.
Manufactured by Daiichi Sankyo UK, Sevikar HCT is the first three-in-one pill of its kind to be released in the UK. Managing high blood pressure is much easier to control when patients take their medication exactly as directed by their doctor, and this treatment allows them to do this.
Out of the eight million people in the UK who suffer from hypertension, two million each take three different medications for their condition. 80% of these people don't take their medications correctly, as the pills are usually required to be taken at various intervals during the day and are often forgotten.
Sevikar HCT pills provide high blood pressure sufferers with an easy way to remember to take their medications - by combining the doses of three different vital medications in one single dose.
Sevikar HCT contains three different ingredients, each of which work together to lower blood pressure. These include:
Sevikar HCT contains a combination of three different high blood pressure medications and can be taken as a single tablet on a daily basis to manage hypertension. It is available in five customised doses, a combination of which will be prescribed to each individual patient according to their unique circumstances.
The first three-in-one medication of its kind, Sevikar HCT is available for people who are suffering from high blood pressure and who are already taking other hypertension medication containing olmesartan and hydrochlorothiazide or olmesartan and amlodipine but have still not experienced the necessary effects required. Your GP will likely only prescribe this medication for you if you have experienced positive results with other hypertension treatments in the past.
The side effects of this treatment will vary from person to person and may not be suitable for everyone. Although not common, side effects that may be experienced when using Sevikar HCT high blood pressure tablets include:
You should visit your doctor if you experience any adverse effects of this new treatment, as minimising side effects may be as simple as adjusting your daily dose. If you do have any allergic reactions to the treatment ensure you contact your doctor as soon as possible as an alternative treatment may be more suitable
Because Sevikar HCT is a newer high blood pressure prescription medication, at present it is only available to buy through your doctor after a face-to-face consultation. The GP must determine if a specific patient needs this medication and can prescribe it at their discretion. Once prescribed however, Sevikar HCT must be closely monitored to ensure it is the right treatment for that patient.
