4.1 Therapeutic indications

Hypertension:

Fosinopril Sodium 10mg Tablets are indicated in the treatment of hypertension. Fosinopril Sodium 10mg Tablets may be used alone as initial therapy or in combination with other antihypertensive agents. The antihypertensive effects of Fosinopril Sodium 10mg Tablets and diuretics used concomitantly are approximately additive.

Heart Failure:

Fosinopril Sodium 10mg Tablets are indicated for the treatment of heart failure in combination with a non-potassium sparing diuretic and where appropriate, digitalis (see section 4.3, 4.4, 4.5, and 5.1). In these patients, Fosinopril Sodium 10mg Tablets improve symptoms and exercise tolerance, reduce severity of heart failure and decrease the frequency of hospitalisation for heart failure.
