Patienteninformation

Losartan Spirig HC®

Spirig HealthCare AG

Was ist Losartan Spirig HC und wann wird es angewendet?

Losartan Spirig HC ist ein Arzneimittel, welches zur Senkung des Blutdrucks angewendet wird.

Losartan Spirig HC senkt den Blutdruck, indem es spezifisch körpereigene Rezeptoren (sog.

Angiotensin II Rezeptoren) blockiert, die Ihre Blutgefässe verengen. Mit Losartan Spirig HC werden

demzufolge die Blutgefässe erweitert. Obwohl Sie wahrscheinlich von der Wirkung des

Arzneimittels selbst nichts verspüren, kann diese durch den Arzt oder die Ärztin mittels

Blutdruckmessung nachgewiesen werden.

Wenn Sie hohen Blutdruck mit Linksherzvergrösserung haben, wird Ihnen Ihr Arzt oder Ihre Ärztin

Losartan Spirig HC verschreiben, um das Risiko einer Herz-Kreislauferkrankung, insbesondere des

Schlaganfalls, zu vermindern.

Bei Patienten und Patientinnen mit hohem Blutdruck und Linksherzvergrösserung bewirkte Losartan

eine Senkung des Schlaganfallrisikos.

Losartan Spirig HC bewirkt auch einen Schutz der Nieren, wobei das Fortschreiten einer

Nierenerkrankung bei Typ 2 Diabetikern mit erhöhtem Blutdruck und mit Protein (Eiweiss) im Urin

(Proteinurie) verzögert werden kann. Eine Nierenerkrankung kann unter anderem durch

Eiweissnachweis im Urin ermittelt werden.

Ihr Arzt oder Ihre Ärztin kann Losartan Spirig HC auch bei milder bis mittelschwerer

Herzinsuffizienz (Herzmuskelschwäche, ungenügende Herzleistung) in Kombination mit anderen

Arzneimitteln einsetzen, wenn andere üblicherweise für diese Erkrankung verwendeten Arzneimittel

wegen bestimmten Nebenwirkungen ungeeignet sind.

Ihr Arzt oder Ihre Ärztin kann Ihnen auch Losartan Spirig HC verschrieben haben, weil Sie an

Diabetes vom Typ 2 mit erhöhtem Blutdruck und mit Eiweiss im Urin leiden. Bei Typ 2 Diabetikern

mit erhöhtem Blutdruck und mit Eiweiss im Urin hat sich Losartan als wirksam erwiesen, da das

Fortschreiten der Nierenerkrankung verzögert werden kann.

Losartan Spirig HC darf nur auf Verschreibung des Arztes oder der Ärztin angewendet werden.

Was sollte dazu beachtet werden?

Warum sollte ein hoher Blutdruck (Hypertonie) behandelt werden?

Wenn ein hoher Blutdruck nicht behandelt wird, können lebenswichtige Organe, wie das Hirn, Herz

und die Nieren geschädigt werden. Sie können sich wohlauf fühlen und keine Symptome haben, aber

die unbehandelte Hypertonie kann eventuell einen Hirnschlag, einen Herzinfarkt, eine

Herzschwäche, eine Nierenfunktionsstörung oder Erblinden verursachen.

Wann darf Losartan Spirig HC nicht eingenommen/angewendet werden?

Nehmen Sie Losartan Spirig HC nicht ein, wenn Sie auf irgendeinen der Inhaltsstoffe

überempfindlich (allergisch) reagieren.

Falls früher anlässlich der Einnahme eines blutdrucksenkenden Arzneimittels Schwellungen im

Gesicht, an Lippen, Zunge oder im Rachen (Schluck- oder Atembeschwerden) auftraten, dürfen Sie

Losartan Spirig HC nicht einnehmen.

Während der letzten 6 Monate einer Schwangerschaft (Es wird empfohlen Losartan Spirig HC auch

in der frühen Phase der Schwangerschaft nicht anzuwenden.) (Siehe «Wann ist bei der

Einnahme/Anwendung von Losartan Spirig HC Vorsicht geboten?» und «Darf Losartan Spirig HC

während einer Schwangerschaft oder in der Stillzeit eingenommen/angewendet werden?»).

Nehmen Sie Losartan Spirig HC nicht ein, wenn Sie Diabetes oder eine eingeschränkte

Nierenfunktion haben und das Arzneimittel Aliskiren (z.B. Rasilez®) zur Senkung des Blutdrucks

einnehmen.

Wann ist bei der Einnahme/Anwendung von Losartan Spirig HC Vorsicht geboten?

Teilen Sie Ihrem Arzt/Ihrer Ärztin mit, wenn Sie vermuten, schwanger zu sein (oder schwanger

werden könnten). Die Einnahme von Losartan Spirig HC in der frühen Phase der Schwangerschaft

wird nicht empfohlen, und Losartan Spirig HC darf nicht mehr nach dem dritten

Schwangerschaftsmonat eingenommen werden, da die Einnahme von Losartan Spirig HC in diesem

Stadium zu schweren Schädigungen Ihres ungeborenen Kindes führen kann (siehe «Wann darf

Losartan Spirig HC nicht eingenommen werden?» und «Darf Losartan Spirig HC während einer

Schwangerschaft oder in der Stillzeit eingenommen/angewendet werden?»).

Informieren Sie Ihren Arzt oder Apotheker bzw. Ihre Ärztin oder Apothekerin, wenn Sie an anderen

Krankheiten leiden, Allergien haben oder andere Arzneimittel (auch selbstgekaufte!) einnehmen.

Sagen Sie Ihrem Arzt oder Ihrer Ärztin, wenn Sie kürzlich an übermässigem Erbrechen oder

Durchfall gelitten haben. Es ist besonders wichtig, dass Sie Ihren Arzt bzw. Ihre Ärztin informieren,

wenn Sie an einer Erkrankung der Leber oder der Niere oder an Zuckerkrankheit (Diabetes) leiden.

Über die Anwendung von Losartan Spirig HC bei Kindern liegt keine Erfahrung vor. Deshalb sollte

Losartan Spirig HC nicht an Kinder verabreicht werden.

Normalerweise wirkt Losartan Spirig HC bei jüngeren und älteren Patienten und Patientinnen gleich

gut und es kann die gleiche Dosierung angewendet werden.

Im Allgemeinen übt Losartan Spirig HC keine Wechselwirkung aus mit Nahrungsmitteln oder

anderen Arzneimitteln, die Sie gleichzeitig einnehmen. Informieren Sie Ihren Arzt oder Ihre Ärztin

dennoch über alle Arzneimittel, die Sie einnehmen oder einzunehmen gedenken, auch über solche,

die ohne Rezept erhältlich sind. Teilen Sie ihm oder ihr auch mit, wenn Sie Kaliumzusätze,

kaliumsparende Mittel oder Kalium enthaltende Diätsalze einnehmen. Teilen Sie ihm oder ihr auch

mit, wenn Sie Arzneimittel zur Behandlung von Schmerzen und Arthritis, andere Blutdruck-

Arzneimittel sowie Lithium (ein Arzneimittel zur Behandlung von gewissen Depressionen)

einnehmen.

Aufgrund der möglichen Nebenwirkungen ist beim Lenken von Fahrzeugen und Bedienen von

Maschinen Vorsicht geboten.

Darf Losartan Spirig HC während einer Schwangerschaft oder in der Stillzeit

eingenommen/angewendet werden?

Schwangerschaft

Teilen Sie Ihrem Arzt/Ihrer Ärztin mit, wenn Sie vermuten, schwanger zu sein (oder schwanger

werden könnten). In der Regel wird Ihr Arzt/Ihre Ärztin Ihnen empfehlen, Losartan Spirig HC vor

einer Schwangerschaft bzw. sobald Sie wissen, dass Sie schwanger sind, abzusetzen, und er/sie wird

Ihnen ein anderes Arzneimittel empfehlen. Die Anwendung von Losartan Spirig HC in der frühen

Schwangerschaft wird nicht empfohlen und Losartan Spirig HC darf nicht mehr nach dem dritten

Schwangerschaftsmonat eingenommen werden, da die Einnahme von Losartan Spirig HC zu

Schädigungen oder zum Tod des ungeborenen Kindes führen kann. Sollten Sie während der

Einnahme von Losartan Spirig HC schwanger werden, teilen Sie es umgehend Ihrem Arzt/ihrer

Ärztin mit.

Stillzeit

Teilen sie Ihrem Arzt/Ihrer Ärztin mit, wenn Sie stillen oder mit dem Stillen beginnen wollen.

Losartan Spirig HC wird nicht zur Anwendung bei stillenden Müttern empfohlen; Ihr Arzt/Ihre

Ärztin kann eine andere Behandlung für Sie wählen, wenn Sie stillen wollen, vor allem, solange Ihr

Kind im Neugeborenenalter ist oder wenn es eine Frühgeburt war.

Wie verwenden Sie Losartan Spirig HC?

Um eine gleichmässige Blutdruckkontrolle aufrechtzuerhalten, ist es wichtig, die Filmtabletten

regelmässig und möglichst jeden Tag zur gleichen Zeit einzunehmen. Die Behandlung des hohen

Blutdrucks ist eine Langzeittherapie und sollte deshalb so lange fortgeführt werden, wie Ihr Arzt

oder Ihre Ärztin es Ihnen verschrieben hat.

Ihr Arzt oder Ihre Ärztin wird abhängig von Ihrem Zustand und Ihrer Begleitmedikation mit anderen

Arzneimitteln die für Sie geeignete Dosis von Losartan Spirig HC bestimmen.

Bei hohem Blutdruck

Die übliche Dosierung von Losartan Spirig HC beträgt bei den meisten Patienten und Patientinnen

eine Filmtablette zu 50 mg pro Tag, welche unabhängig von den Mahlzeiten eingenommen werden

kann.

Die übliche Dosis von Losartan Spirig HC zur Verminderung des Schlaganfallrisikos bei Patienten

und Patientinnen mit Bluthochdruck und Linksherzvergrösserung beträgt 1 Filmtablette zu 50 mg

einmal täglich. Die Dosis kann bei Bedarf auf 1 Filmtablette zu 100 mg einmal täglich erhöht

werden.

Bei Herzinsuffizienz

Die übliche empfohlene Anfangsdosis beträgt 12,5 mg (1 Filmtablette der Starterpackung) einmal

täglich. Ihr Arzt oder Ihre Ärztin wird diese Dosis schrittweise erhöhen, bis die richtige Dosis für Sie

gefunden worden ist. Die übliche Erhaltungsdosis beträgt eine Filmtablette zu 50 mg einmal täglich.

Typ 2 Diabetes mit Eiweiss im Urin

Die übliche Dosis von Losartan Spirig HC beträgt für die meisten Patienten und Patientinnen 50 mg

einmal täglich. Die Dosis kann nach Bedarf auf 100 mg einmal täglich erhöht werden.

Sollten Sie jedoch einmal die Einnahme vergessen, so nehmen Sie keine Extradosis ein, sondern

fahren Sie am folgenden Tag wie gewohnt mit der Einnahme fort.

Bei einer Überdosierung sollten Sie sofort mit Ihrem Arzt oder Ihrer Ärztin Kontakt aufnehmen,

sodass eine medizinische Behandlung rechtzeitig erfolgen kann.

Ändern Sie nicht von sich aus die verschriebene Dosierung. Wenn Sie glauben, das Arzneimittel

wirke zu schwach oder zu stark, so sprechen Sie mit Ihrem Arzt oder Apotheker bzw. mit Ihrer

Ärztin oder Apothekerin.

Welche Nebenwirkungen kann Losartan Spirig HC haben?

Jedes Arzneimittel kann unerwünschte oder unbeabsichtigte Wirkungen, sogenannte

Nebenwirkungen, haben. Die folgenden unerwünschten Wirkungen wurden bisher beobachtet:

Sehr häufig: Kopfschmerzen und Schwindel (Benommenheit).

Häufig: Infektionen der oberen Atemwege, Schlaflosigkeit, Drehschwindel (Vertigo), Herzklopfen,

schneller Herzschlag, tiefer Blutdruck, Husten, Halsentzündung, verstopfte Nase, Durchfall,

Übelkeit, Bauchschmerzen, Verdauungsstörungen, Rückenschmerzen, Muskelkrämpfe,

Schwäche/Müdigkeit, Flüssigkeitsansammlung in den Geweben (Ödeme)/Schwellungen und

Brustschmerzen.

Gelegentlich: Blutdruckabfall beim Aufstehen (mit Symptomen wie Schwindel, Schwarzwerden vor

den Augen) und Hautausschlag.

Über Migräne, Geschmacksstörungen, Erbrechen, Gelenk- und Muskelschmerzen, Abnahme der

roten Blutzellen und der Blutplättchen, Entzündungsreaktionen der Blutgefässe, Leberentzündung,

Impotenz, Unwohlsein, Juckreiz und erhöhte Lichtempfindlichkeit der Haut wurde auch berichtet.

Informieren Sie Ihren Arzt oder Apotheker bzw. Ihre Ärztin oder Apothekerin sofort, wenn Sie

solche oder andere ungewöhnlichen Symptome beobachten.

Einige Patienten bzw. Patientinnen – besonders diejenigen mit Diabetes vom Typ 2 mit Eiweiss im

Urin – können auch erhöhte Kaliumspiegel im Blut entwickeln. Sprechen Sie mit Ihrem Arzt oder

Ihrer Ärztin, wenn Sie eine Nierenerkrankung und Typ 2 Diabetes mit Eiweiss im Urin haben

und/oder Kaliumzusätze, kaliumsparende Mittel oder kaliumhaltige Diätsalze einnehmen.

Wenn Sie eine allergische Reaktion mit Schwellung des Gesichts, der Lippen, des Rachens und/oder

Zunge (mit Schluck- oder Atembeschwerden) verspüren, unterbrechen Sie die Einnahme von

Losartan Spirig HC und setzen Sie sich sofort mit Ihrem Arzt oder Ihrer Ärztin in Verbindung.

Was ist ferner zu beachten?
