About AMACE BP TABLET

AMACE BP TABLET belongs to the 'anti-hypertensive drugs' class used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). Hypertension or high blood pressure is a chronic condition in which the blood's force against the artery wall is high. As a result, it leads to heart disease, irregular heartbeat, and other complications.

AMACE BP TABLET contains Amlodipine (calcium channel blocker) and Benazepril (angiotensin receptor blocker). Together, Amlodipine and Benazepril effectively relax and widen your blood vessels. This lowers your blood pressure and makes it easier for your heart to pump blood around your body.

AMACE BP TABLET should be taken as prescribed by the doctor. In some cases, you may experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, headaches, flushing, feeling tired, feeling dizzy, pain in your joints or muscles, and swollen ankles. Most of these side effects of AMACE BP TABLET do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor. It is advisable to drink plenty of fluids while taking AMACE BP TABLET.

Even if you feel better, do not stop taking your medication unless instructed by the doctor. AMACE BP TABLET should not be used in pregnant women and the paediatric population aged below 6 years. There is no substantial research yet on the use of AMACE BP TABLET in breastfeeding/nursing mothers. Let your doctor know if you are a nursing mother before taking AMACE BP TABLET; your doctor will decide whether breastfeeding mothers can take AMACE BP TABLET or not. Keep your doctor informed about your health condition and medicines to rule out any side effects.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Blood pressure: It is the measurement of the force that our heart uses to pump blood to all parts of the body. Hypertension is a chronic condition when blood pressure is too high. This condition can lead to hardened arteries (blood vessels), decreasing the blood and oxygen flow to the heart. Raised blood pressure can cause chest pain (angina) and heart attack (when the blood supply to the heart is blocked). High blood pressure also causes brain damage (stroke) and kidney failure. High blood pressure can be diagnosed with the help of a blood pressure monitor. Systolic pressure is the pressure with which the heart pumps blood. On the other hand, diastolic pressure is when your heart is resting between heartbeats. If your blood pressure is 140/90 mm of Hg, the systolic pressure is 140 mm of Hg, and diastolic pressure is 90 mm of Hg. Ideal blood pressure should be between 90/60 mm of Hg and 120/80 mm of Hg.
