Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to measure the effect of the amlodipine/atorvastatin combination pill in reducing both elevated blood pressure and cholesterol levels to levels suggested by guidelines

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hypertension Hyperlipidemia Drug: Amlodipine/atorvastatin single pill Phase 3

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Enrollment : 1825 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Clinical Utility of Amlodipine/Atorvastatin to Improve Concomitant Cardiovascular Risk Factors of Hypertension and Dyslipidemia
Study Start Date : May 2004
Study Completion Date : July 2005

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To evaluate the efficacy of amlodipine/atorvastatin therapy by assessing the percentage of intent-to-treat subjects achieving both BP and lipid treatment goals (JNC VII and NCEP ATP III)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To assess changes from baseline in lipid profile and systolic and diastolic BP after 14 weeks treatment; and in this secondary and the primary objectives stratified by prior BP and lipid therapy, and in diabetic subjects; safety
