  Purpose

Primary:

  • To evaluate the efficacy of two regimens of irbesartan in patients responding but not normalized at 6 weeks of treatment (schema N°1: maintenance 150 mg/day, schema n°2: 300 mg/day for 6 more weeks)

Secondary:

  • To evaluate the percentage of patients with DBP < 90 mmHg at 6 and 12 weeks
  • To evaluate the percentage of patients with SBP < 140 mmHg at 6 and 12 weeks
  • To evaluate rate of adverse events during the study

Until 6 weeks: 150mg/day, then a dosage adjustment according to the blood pressure(normalized: DBP<90mmHg, responding non normalized:DBP≥90mmHg and a decrease of DBP≥10mmHg, non responding: decrease of DBP<10mmHg and DBP≥90mmHg) for the period between 6 and 12 weeks:

• 150mg/day for normalized patients and patients responding non normalized randomized in the group A

Drug: Irbesartan

Irbesartan: 150mg tablets

Dosage: Until 6 weeks: 150mg/day, then a dosage adjustment according to the blood pressure(normalized: DBP<90mmHg, responding non normalized:DBP≥90mmHg and a decrease of DBP≥10mmHg, non responding: decrease of DBP<10mmHg and DBP≥90mmHg) for the period between 6 and 12 weeks:

• 150mg/day for normalized patients and patients responding non normalized randomized in the group A

Active Comparator: 2
• Or 300 mg/day for non responding patients and responding patients non normalized randomized in the group B
Drug: Irbesartan

Irbesartan: 150mg tablets

Until 6 weeks: 150mg/day, then a dosage adjustment according to the blood pressure(normalized: DBP<90mmHg, responding non normalized:DBP≥90mmHg and a decrease of DBP≥10mmHg, non responding: decrease of DBP<10mmHg and DBP≥90mmHg) for the period between 6 and 12 weeks:

• Or 300 mg/day for non responding patients and responding patients non normalized randomized in the group B
