About

CO-Renitec 10mg+25mg Tablet 10 'S has two main chemical groups that work harmoniously together to bring about low levels of blood pressure in patients who suffer through high blood pressure on a regular basis.CO-Renitec 10mg+25mg Tablet 10 'S combines two separate drug groups in one very efficient tablet.One of the chemical groups is known as Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Receptor Blockers;this chemical group prevents the narrowing of blood vessels therefore easing the flow of blood to the various body organs and easing the flow of blood in the blood vessels themselves.This action coupled with a diuretic that causes a decrease of fluid in the body (increased amount of urine is produced and excreted by patients taking this drug) efficiently lowers raised levels of blood pressure (hypertension).

Hypertension left untreated can cause severe damage to the brain, heart, kidney,blood vessels and other body organs.CO-Renitec 10mg+25mg Tablet 10 'S is prescribed when a single chemical group alone is not able to efficiently treat high blood pressure thus this drug is known as a second line of treatment for hypertension,therefore,CO-Renitec 10mg+25mg Tablet 10 'S dosage is determined by the patient’s stage of illness and their response to treatment with this drug.

It is advised that CO-Renitec 10mg+25mg Tablet 10 'S should be taken a minimum of 4-5 hours before sleeping at night as it may cause disrupted sleep due to the need to urinate at night time.CO-Renitec 10mg+25mg Tablet 10 'S is not recommended to expecting or lactating mother as it causes damage to the fetus.Women planning on starting a family should refer to their doctor,the doctor is likely to change the dosage or the drug,depending of the patient’s health.If patient is intaking medicines for combat high cholesterol along with CO-Renitec 10mg+25mg Tablet 10 'S then the physician may ask these patients to have their cholesterol medication 4-6 hours prior to ingesting CO-Renitec 10mg+25mg Tablet 10 'S.

One tablet daily is the usual prescribed dose.CO-Renitec 10mg+25mg Tablet 10 'S is to be taken regularly,preferably at the same time each day to help the patient remember their daily dose.The patient ought to discuss with their physician before ceasing intake of the medicine even if the patient is no longer suffering from common symptoms of the hypertension as ceasing the intake of the medicine has reported in cases of rebound hypertension (the re-emergence of high blood pressure),therefore, physicians taper of the product’s dosage before completely stopping it.

Indications

  • High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) 

How Does CO-Renitec 10mg+25mg Tablet 10 'S Work

Two things that increase blood pressure levels from the normal (120/80mmHg) range are increased amounts of fluid in the body that leads to a higher than normal amount of blood flowing through vessels that aren’t built to withstand such high amounts of fluid on a daily basis.Excessive fluid together with narrowed blood vessels (decrease in diameter) cause Hypertension. 

CO-Renitec 10mg+25mg Tablet 10 'S works by preventing both the unnecessary retention of fluid in the body and the narrowing of blood vessels and therefore,allowing normal amounts of blood flow and easy access of blood to the various organs and easing the flow of blood within the vessel itself.

CO-Renitec 10mg+25mg Tablet 10 'S is able to bring about the desired effect by the perfect and unique combination of two chemical groups known as Angiotensin Converting Enzyme Blockers (prevent decrease in blood vessel diameter by blocking the formation angiotensin,a natural hormone found in the human body that works by narrowing blood vessels) and Diuretics (prevent fluid retention in the body by allowing excessive fluid to be lost via urine).
