Theseepisodes occurred most frequently shortly after blood pressure treatment wasmodified, were transient, and did not affect the treatment effect ofivabradine. When treatment modifications are made in chronic heart failurepatients treated with ivabradine blood pressure should be monitored at anappropriate interval (see section 4.8).$0$0The following has been deleted: $0$0Heart failure must be appropriately controlled before consideringivabradine treatment.
