BENITEC A TABLET
GLAXO SIMTHKLINE PHARMACEUTICALS LTD
BENITEC A TABLET is a combination of medication containing blood pressure-lowering medicines primarily used to treat high blood pressure. BENITEC A TABLET is used alone or in combination with other blood pressure-lowering medications. 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.
BENITEC A TABLET contains Olmesartan (angiotensin receptor blocker) and Amlodipine (calcium channel blocker). Olmesartan works by blocking the hormone angiotensin, thereby relaxing blood vessels. This allows the blood to flow more smoothly and the heart to pump more efficiently. Amlodipine, on the other hand, acts by relaxing the blood vessels. This reduces the heart's workload and makes the heart more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body. Thus, both help lower high blood pressure, reducing heart attack or stroke chances.
You can take BENITEC A TABLET with food or without food with a glass of water. Do not chew, bite, or break it. Your doctor will advise you on how often you should take your tablets based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience headaches, drowsiness, ankle swelling, nausea, dizziness, and low blood pressure. Most of these side effects of BENITEC A 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 BENITEC A TABLET.
Try not to stop taking BENITEC A TABLET on your own. Inform your doctor, and your dose might be gradually lowered to avoid a rise in blood pressure and increase the risk of heart disease and stroke. Inform your doctor if you are suffering from kidney, liver, heart disease, or diabetes. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please tell your doctor, as it is not recommended in pregnancy. It should not be given to children less than 12 years of age. Do not use BENITEC A TABLET if you have low blood pressure (hypotension) or cardiogenic shock (sudden stopping blood flow to the heart). Please tell your doctor if you are taking any other medicines or are allergic to the BENITEC A TABLET. Reducing the amount of table salt (sodium chloride) in your food often relieves the body's swelling. Grapefruit juice and St. John's wort plant should not be consumed when taking BENITEC A TABLET as it is contraindicated.

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 blood supply to the heart is blocked). Additionally, 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 out. On the other hand, diastolic pressure is when your heart is at the resting stage between heartbeats. If your blood pressure is 140/90 mm of Hg, it means 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.
