This drug-utilization study in a prescription database of more than 50,000 patients analyzed compliance, persistence, and switching behavior for ACE inhibitors and ARBs. 0000020907 00000 n ACE inhibitors (angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors) and ARBs (angiotensin-receptor blockers) are used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and congestive heart failure, to prevent kidney failure in patients with high blood pressure or diabetes, and to reduce the risk of stroke. Although these medication classes work in a similar fashion, ARBs do not inhibit kinase II which is thought to be responsible for the cough. startxref McMurray JJ, Document contraindication(s) to ACE/ARB. 0000009798 00000 n A person viewing it online may make one printout of the material and may use that printout only for his or her personal, non-commercial reference. endstream endobj 395 0 obj <>/Metadata 22 0 R/Outlines 14 0 R/PageLayout/SinglePage/Pages 21 0 R/StructTreeRoot 24 0 R/Type/Catalog/ViewerPreferences<>>> endobj 396 0 obj >/PageWidthList<0 612.0>>>>>>/Resources<>/ExtGState<>/Font<>/ProcSet[/PDF/Text]>>/Rotate 0/StructParents 0/Thumb 19 0 R/TrimBox[0.0 0.0 612.0 792.0]/Type/Page>> endobj 397 0 obj [398 0 R 399 0 R] endobj 398 0 obj <>/Border[0 0 0]/H/N/Rect[302.841 406.325 387.306 393.945]/StructParent 1/Subtype/Link/Type/Annot>> endobj 399 0 obj <>/Border[0 0 0]/H/N/Rect[36.16 392.825 136.484 380.445]/StructParent 2/Subtype/Link/Type/Annot>> endobj 400 0 obj [/ICCBased 427 0 R] endobj 401 0 obj <> endobj 402 0 obj <>stream 0000017609 00000 n / Journals When switching from an ACE inhibitor to sacubitril/valsartan, allow a washout period of 36 hours between the two treatments. 0000020999 00000 n Mortality rates from a cardiovascular cause over 3.5 years were 16.5% with enalapril vs. 13.3% with sacubitril/valsartan (number needed to treat [NNT] for 3.5 years = 31; 95% confidence interval [CI], 22 to 62).

Based on this he continued to argue that the question is not “should” patients taking medium doses of ACEI or ARB be switched, but rather “how.” He explained that “forcing” patients to up titrate to highest dose of ACEI first (enalapril 10mg twice daily) before switching to the ARNI, may have risks, and is not preferable. When switching from an ACE inhibitor, patients should wait 36 hours before starting sacubitril/valsartan.
