The antihypertensive effect of Amlodipine/Valsartan combination has been evaluated in worldwide populations including Asian patients. The study primarily aims to evaluate the effectiveness of Amlodipine/Valsartan combination in patients with essential hypertension in Taiwan using a prospective, open-label, non-randomized approach.

The study also wants to investigate the safety of Amlodipine/Valsartan combination during the 6-week treatment period.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the change from baseline in office SBP measurements by cuff assessments at the end of the 6-week study period. [ Time Frame: 6 weeks from baseline ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the change from baseline in office DBP measurements by cuff assessments after 6 weeks of treatment [ Time Frame: 6 weeks from baseline ]
  • To evaluate the percentage of subjects who achieve BP goal as measured by cuff assessments (<140/90 mmHg) after 6 weeks of treatment [ Time Frame: 6 weeks from baseline ]
