Amlip-10 Tablet belongs to a class of medicines called calcium channel blockers which are primarily taken for the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure) and angina (chest pain). Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a lifelong or chronic condition in which the force exerted by the blood against the artery walls becomes high. Higher this blood pressure, harder the heart has to pump. Amlip-10 Tablet contains Amlodipine, a calcium channel blocker that acts by relaxing the blood vessels. This reduces the workload on the heart and makes the heart more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body. Thus, it helps to lower high blood pressure, reducing the chances of heart attack or stroke. Take Amlip-10 Tablet with or without food as prescribed by your doctor with a full glass of water. Amlip-10 Tablet may be prescribed alone or in combination with other blood pressure lowering medicines depending upon your blood pressure levels. Inform your doctor if you are taking any other anti-hypertensive medicine. You may have common side effects like headache, feeling exhausted and swollen ankles that usually resolve after some time. You must closely monitor your blood pressure if you ever have had a stroke, heart attack or currently taking other blood pressure-lowering pills. It is advised to continue taking this drug and do not stop taking it suddenly without consulting your doctor. It is advisable to drink plenty of fluids while taking this medicine. Lifestyle changes are particularly helpful in achieving optimum outcomes with Amlip-10 Tablet and keeping blood pressure under check. Low salt diet, daily physical activity (even 20-30 minute brisk walking for 5 days a week can help!), losing weight in case of people who are obese etc are the mainstay of treatment of hypertension. Inform your doctor if you have had an allergic reaction to Amlip-10 Tablet, are pregnant or are planning to get pregnant, are breastfeeding, have liver disease, kidney disease, heart failure, heart valve problem or history of heart attack.
