“Concomitant use of Diovan with aliskiren is contraindicated in patients with renal impairment (GFR < 60 mL/min/1.73 m2) (see section 4.3).

Diabetes Mellitus

Concomitant use of Diovan with aliskiren is contraindicated in patients with diabetes mellitus (see section 4.3).”



Section 4.3, added:

“-Concomitant use of angiotensin receptor antagonists (ARBs) - including Diovan - or of angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) with aliskiren in patients with diabetes mellitus or renal impairment (GFR < 60 mL/min/1.73m2) (see sections 4.4 and 4.5).”

....... “The concomitant use of ARBs - including Diovan - or of ACEIs with aliskiren is contraindicated in patients with renal impairment (GFR < 60 mL/min/1.73m2) (see sections 4.3 and 4.5).

Dual Blockade of the Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone System (RAAS)

Hypotension, syncope, stroke, hyperkalaemia, and changes in renal function (including acute renal failure) have been reported in susceptible individuals, especially if combining medicinal products that affect this system. Dual blockade of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system by combining aliskiren with an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) or an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) is therefore not recommended.

The use of aliskiren in combination with Diovan is contraindicated in patients with diabetes mellitus or renal impairment (GFR < 60 ml/min/1.73 m2) (see section 4.3).”

 

Section 4.5, added:

“Dual blockade of the Renin-Angiotensin- System (RAS) with ARBs, ACEIs, or aliskiren

Caution is required while co-administering ARBs, including Diovan, with other agents blocking the RAAS such as ACEIs or aliskiren (see section 4.4).

 

Concomitant use of angiotensin receptor antagonists (ARBs) - including Diovan - or of angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) with aliskiren in patients with diabetes mellitus or renal impairment (GFR < 60 ml/min/1.73m2) is contraindicated (see section 4.3).”

All of the changes made to this SPC were as a result of the MRP Harmonisation procedure, i.e. bringing the SPC of countries who previously only had Diovan approved nationally inline with the SPC of all the current MRP countries, of which Ireland is one.  Therefore most of the changes were formatting and tidying up sections - the only main change for Ireland occured in section 4.3 and 4.6 relating to pregnancy which was previously contraindicated altogether, but now is only contraindicated for second and third trimesters.
