Medicine Overview of Cardicil 5mg Tablet

Introduction
Cardicil 5 is a medicine used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). It belongs to a class of medicines known as a calcium channel blocker which helps to lower blood pressure. This helps prevent heart attacks and strokes. It may also be prescribed to prevent angina (heart-related chest pain). Cardicil 5 may be prescribed alone or along with other medicines. The dose depends on the severity of your condition. You can take it at any time of day, with or without food, but it is best to take it at the same time each day. Keep taking it for as long as advised by your doctor. Do not stop this medicine on your own, even if you feel well because high blood pressure often has no symptoms. This makes it hard to identify any sudden spike and if you stop taking it, your condition may get worse. Keeping active with regular exercise, reducing your weight and eating a healthy diet will also help control your blood pressure. Follow your doctor's advice while taking this medicine. The most common side effects include fatigue, swelling in the feet, sleepiness, dizziness, flushing, the unusual beating of the heart (palpitations) and headache. Consult your doctor if any of these bother you, or do not go away. Side effects like swelling in the feet or ankles and palpitations are lesser in severity than other similar medicines of the group. Studies have shown that it also has a protective effect on the kidneys. Before taking it, let your doctor know if you have any liver, kidney or heart problems. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also consult their doctor for advice before taking this medicine. You also need to tell your doctor what 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.
