The objective of this study is to compare the reduction in office seated systolic blood pressure (BP) following a 8 weeks regimen of ramipril 5mg plus felodipine 5mg versus ramipril 10mg.

To compare the response rate (defined as office systolic blood pressure (SBP) / Diastolic blood pressure (DBP) reduce more than 10mmHg from baseline), and BP controlled rate (defined as SBP<140mmHg and/or DBP<90mmHg) and as SBP < 130 mmHg and /or DBP < 80 mmHg in diabetes,chronic kidney disease, known Coronary Arterial Disease (CAD) or CAD equivalent, or 10-year Framingham risk score > 10%.

To ascertain the safety and tolerability of ramipril/felodipine versus ramipril in Taiwanese population.

To compare compliance with fixed dose combination of ramipril/felodipine versus ramipril treatment.
