About Benitowa 4 Tablet 15's

Benitowa 4 Tablet 15's belongs to a class of medicines called calcium channel blockers, which is primarily used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and angina-pectoris(chest pain). Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a lifelong or chronic condition in which the blood pressure against the artery walls becomes high. Angina-pectoris is a type of chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart.

Benitowa 4 Tablet 15's contains 'Benidipine'. It works by regulating blood pressure by relaxing the blood vessels and reducing the pressure on them, making it easier for the heart to pump more blood throughout the body. This ultimately reduces blood pressure and improves chest pain.
