Clinical Effects and Dosing Guidelines for Trandolapril-Verapamil ER

Effects of Trandolapril-Verapamil ER

A blood pressure reading consists of two numbers -- for example: 120/80. The top number is known as the systolic blood pressure and the bottom number is the diastolic blood pressure. During clinical studies in people taking trandolapril-verapamil ER, systolic blood pressure (the top number) decreased by 7 to 12 mmHg on average and diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number) decreased by 6 to 8 mmHg on average. The higher the dose of trandolapril-verapamil ER, the greater the drop in blood pressure tended to be.
 
By lowering blood pressure, trandolapril-verapamil ER can decrease the risk of developing health problems that can result from long-term high blood pressure, including a heart attack or stroke (see Effects of High Blood Pressure).
