Description

Introduction

Amlopin 5 Tablet belongs to a class of medicines known as calcium channel blockers. It is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and prevent angina (heart-related chest pain). It lowers blood pressure and reduces the heart’s workload, which helps prevent heart attacks and strokes.

Amlopin 5 Tablet may be prescribed alone or along with other medicines. The dose depends on what you are taking it for and the severity of your condition. You can take it at any time of the day, with or without food, but it is best to take it at about the same time each day. You should take this medicine for as long as it is prescribed for you. Even if you feel well, do not stop this medicine on your own because high blood pressure often has no symptoms. If you stop taking it, your condition may get worse. Keeping yourself active with regular exercise, managing your weight, and eating a healthy diet will also help control your blood pressure.

The most common side effects include headache, fatigue, nausea, abdominal pain, and sleepiness. Consult your doctor if any of these side effects bother you or do not go away. They may be able to suggest ways to prevent or reduce the side effects.

Before taking it, let your doctor know if you have any liver, heart, or kidney problems. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also consult their doctor before taking this medicine. You also need to tell your doctor about all the other medicines you are taking, especially those used to treat high blood pressure or heart conditions. You should have your blood pressure checked regularly to make sure that this medicine is working properly.

Benefits of Amlopin Tablet

In Treatment of Hypertension (high blood pressure)

Amlopin 5 Tablet works by relaxing the blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily around your body. This lowers your blood pressure and reduces your risk of having a stroke, a heart attack, or kidney problems in the future. You do not usually feel any direct benefit from taking this medicine, but it works in the long term to keep you well. You should take it regularly as prescribed for this medicine to be most effective, even if you feel better.

In Prevention of Angina (heart-related chest pain)

Amlopin 5 Tablet relaxes the blood vessels and improves blood flow around your body. This means that more oxygen gets to your heart and reduces the risk of getting chest pain (angina).

This medicine needs to be taken regularly as prescribed for it to work effectively. So, it is important to keep taking it even if you feel well and have no symptoms.
