Brief Summary:

Levacalm Tab. was approved in Jul 2013 by MFDS in South Korea. Levacalm Tab. is combination drug of Valsartan as an angiotensin II receptor blocker and Lercanidipine as a Calcium channel blocker. It is a new drug of combination of Valsartan and Lercanidipine. Thus, there's no enough safety data and efficacy data defined from the clinical study.

Also, many combination drugs of valsartaa and amlodipine are widely used in the market.

LGLS will compare the safety(adverse events especially the lower leg edema) and efficacy (blood pressure and pulse) of Levacalm and Valsartan/amlodipine combination drug from this study.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Patients treated with Levacalm

In this group, the patients will be enrolled treated with Levacalm tab. as an anti-hypertensive drug.

The number of this group will be double than the control group to get more information about safety and efficacy.

Drug: Levacalm
Patients treated with Valsartan/amlodipine
In this group, the patients will be enrolled treated with Valsartan/amlodipine combination drug as an anti-hypertensive drug.
Drug: Valsartan/amlodipine

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety of each group by observing the Adverse events especially detecting the incidence of lower leg edema and orthostatic hypertension by subject questionnaire. [ Time Frame: 6month ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. mean change of the blood pressure and pulse after administation of drug at 12week and 24week. [ Time Frame: 12weeks, 24weeks ]
  2. BP control rate [ Time Frame: 12weeks, 24weeks ]
  3. Responder rate [ Time Frame: 12weeks, 24weeks ]
  4. Evaluation of the changes in metabolic syndrome markers after treatment if the factors are available [ Time Frame: 12weeks, 24weeks ]
  5. Evaluation of cardiovascular risk [ Time Frame: 12weeks, 24weeks ]
