CETANIL CT TABLET
ALE-ALEMBIC CHEMICAL WORKS
CHLORTHALIDONE-12.5MG + CILNIDIPINE-10MG
CETANIL CT TABLET belongs to the class of medications called ‘antihypertensives’ used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). Hypertension is a lifelong condition in which there is a persistent rise in blood pressure. The rise in blood pressure occurs when the force exerted by the blood against the blood vessel (arteries wall) increases. The higher this blood pressure, the harder the heart has to pump. As a result, it leads to heart diseases, irregular heartbeat, and other complications.
CETANIL CT TABLET is a combination of two medicines: Cilnidipine and Chlorthalidone. Cilnidipine blocks the calcium channels present in the blood vessels of the heart. This effect widens the blood vessels lowering the pressure exerted by the blood on the walls of blood vessels. It decreases the workload on the heart. It also reduces the risk of heart attack or stroke. Chlorthalidone is a diuretic or water pill. It acts by getting rid of excess water and salts in the body by increasing urination, thereby reducing blood pressure. It helps to reduce edema (fluid buildup) and swelling associated with hypertension.
You should take this medicine as prescribed by your doctor. The common side-effects of CETANIL CT TABLET are low blood pressure (feeling light-headed), dizziness, headache, palpitations (racing or pounding heart), increased frequency of urination, lethargy (lack of energy), peripheral edema (swelling of legs/hands), flushing (skin reddening), rash, impotence (erectile dysfunction), and gingival hyperplasia (gum overgrowth). Inform your doctor if any of these side-effects persist or get worsen.
Do not take CETANIL CT TABLET if you are allergic to Chlorthalidone, Cilnidipine, or any other ingredients present in it. Do not take CETANIL CT TABLET if you are unable to urinate or allergic to sulfa drugs. Before taking CETANIL CT TABLET, inform your doctor if you have kidney disease, heart failure, diabetes, gout (a type of arthritis), high cholesterol, aortic stenosis (narrowing of the aortic valve), cardiogenic shock (sudden stopping of blood flow to the heart), or if you are on a low-salt diet. Also, inform your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

It acts by getting rid of excess water and salts in the body by increasing urination, thereby reducing blood pressure. It helps to reduce edema (fluid buildup) and swelling associated with hypertension. Together, CETANIL CT TABLET can effectively reduce the blood pressure and the complications associated with this condition such as heart attack.
CETANIL CT TABLET may cause electrolyte imbalances (low levels of potassium, sodium, or magnesium in your blood). So, consult your doctor immediately if you have vomiting or diarrhoea, as CETANIL CT TABLET used in this condition may lead to severe dehydration. Your doctor may perform blood and urine tests to monitor electrolyte levels. CETANIL CT TABLET may cause dizziness, so avoid rising up too fast from a sitting or lying position. Stay hydrated and avoid hot weather as CETANIL CT TABLET increases the frequency of urination. Do not stop taking CETANIL CT TABLET abruptly, as it may increase the risk of a heart attack.
Drug-drug interactions: CETANIL CT TABLET may interact with other blood pressure-lowering medications, anticancer drug (aldesleukin), a medication used to treat arrhythmias (quinidine), antiepileptic medicine (phenytoin), antitubercular drug (rifampicin), an antibiotic (erythromycin), steroids, a medication used to treat diabetes (insulin), other oral diabetes medicines, anti-psychotic drug (lithium), and a medication used to treat heart failure (digoxin).
Drug-food interactions: You are recommended to avoid alcohol as it may increase the risk of side-effects.
Drug-disease interactions: CETANIL CT TABLET is not recommended for use in patients with nil urine output (anuria). It should be used with caution in patients with kidney disease, heart failure, diabetes, gout (a type of arthritis), high cholesterol, aortic stenosis (narrowing of the aortic valve), and cardiogenic shock (sudden stopping of blood flow to the heart).
Alcohol consumption may worsen the condition by increasing the risk of side-effects.
There is no sufficient evidence to claim that Cilnidipine can be used safely during pregnancy. On the other hand, Chlorthalidone may cause jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), low blood sugar, and bruising in newborn babies when used in pregnant women. So, use CETANIL CT TABLET with caution in pregnant women.
CETANIL CT TABLET should be used with caution in breastfeeding mothers as this medicine may suppress lactation and also may get excreted in the breast milk.
CETANIL CT TABLET may cause dizziness and affect your ability to drive or operate heavy machinery.
CETANIL CT TABLET should be used with caution in patients with liver diseases. The dose may have to be adjusted by your doctor.
CETANIL CT TABLET should be used with caution in patients with kidney diseases as this medicine can cause electrolyte disturbances. The dose may have to be adjusted by your doctor.
CETANIL CT TABLET should be used with caution in children below 12 years of age. The dose may have to be adjusted by your doctor based on your age.

Hypertension: It 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. Blood pressure is the measurement of the force that our heart uses to pump blood to all parts of the body. 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 or sphygmomanometer. Systolic pressure is the pressure when the heart pumps blood out. On the other hand, diastolic pressure is the pressure 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.
CETANIL CT TABLET is a combination of two medicines: Cilnidipine and Chlorthalidone. CIlnidipine blocks the calcium channels in the heart, widens the blood vessels, and lowers blood pressure. On the other hand, Chlorthalidone reduces blood pressure by expelling excess water and salts from the body through urine.
CETANIL CT TABLET may cause impotence (erectile dysfunction) as the blood flow to the penis decreases. If you experience erectile dysfunction during the use of CETANIL CT TABLET, inform your doctor immediately.
You are recommended to take this medicine for a duration as intended by your doctor. High blood pressure is a life-long condition, and you should not abruptly discontinue the medicine without discussing it with your doctor.
CETANIL CT TABLET may affect your blood sugar levels. It is recommended to discuss with your doctor before taking CETANIL CT TABLET to know the possible risks of this medicine.
CETANIL CT TABLET may affect cholesterol levels in the blood as this medicine may cause an increase in low-density lipoprotein (LDL) levels.
