Product Description

INTRODUCTION

AMLOPRES contains Amlodipine which belongs to a group of medicines called calcium antagonists. It is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), chest pain due to narrowing of the blood vessels of the heart muscle (angina pectoris) or a rare form of chest pain due to cramping of the blood vessels of the heart muscle (prinzmetal or variant angina). It can be used alone or in combination with other medicines to treat these conditions.

High blood pressure usually occurs from blood pushing too hard against your blood vessels. Pain or discomfort that keeps coming back when part of your heart does not get enough blood is defined as angina.

Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor has directed you. It should be taken with a glass of water with or without food. Drinking grapefruit juice and taking grapefruit should be avoided while taking this medicine. Before taking it, tell your doctor know if you have any liver, heart, or kidney problems. Inform your doctor what other medicines you are taking, especially those used to treat high blood pressure or heart conditions. This medicine is not recommended for use in children aged under 6 years.
