Cordil 5mg Tablet 10's
Cordil 5mg Tablet 10's belongs to the class of blood pressure-lowering medications called ‘nitrate vasodilators’ used in the prevention of angina (heart-related chest pain) or heart failure. Angina pectoris (angina) is the chest pain occurring due to reduced blood flow to the heart (coronary artery disease). It occurs when the blood vessels supplying the heart are blocked or narrowed.
Cordil 5mg Tablet 10's contains ‘isosorbide dinitrate’ which works by dilating, relaxing and widening the constricted blood vessels, thereby increasing the blood and oxygen supply to the heart. Thus, it effectively helps prevent the risk of future heart attack and stroke in the future, especially in high blood pressure patients.
