About CYTOGARD 20MG TABLET

CYTOGARD 20MG TABLET is a heart problem-related medication containing Trimetazidine (anti-anginal drug), which is used to prevent an attack of angina pectoris (chest pain caused by coronary disease) in adult patients in combination with other medication. CYTOGARD 20MG TABLET prevents a new attack of angina but does not prevents an acute attack. Angina is chest pain, which happens when enough supply of oxygen does not reach the heart. The insufficient supply can be due to obstruction in the pathway or narrowing of the blood vessels.

CYTOGARD 20MG TABLET contains Trimetazidine, which is a 'metabolic agent.' It affects metabolism (the process by which substances are broken down in the body). CYTOGARD 20MG TABLET decreases the body's oxygen requirement by shifting metabolism from fats to glucose, increasing the rate at which glucose is broken down. Hence, the heart works efficiently and requires less oxygen. In addition to this, it is also used in treating vertigo (a spinning sensation), tinnitus (ringing sensation in the ears), and to treat reduced vision and visual field disturbances (unclear or disturbed vision).

CYTOGARD 20MG TABLET can be taken with or without food. It should be taken in dose and duration as advised by your doctor, depending upon your disease's condition. Also, regularly visit a doctor as the dose may vary from time to time. This medicine's common side effects include dizziness, headache, diarrhea, vomiting, indigestion, abdominal pain, and feeling sick. It is not necessary for everyone to experience the above side effects. In case of any discomfort, speak with a doctor.

CYTOGARD 20MG TABLET should not be stopped suddenly as it may worsen your condition. Also, some lifestyle changes like regular exercise, eating well, smoking cessation, and cutting down on alcohol can improve the heart's health. People who have a liver or kidney disease, are pregnant or breastfeeding should inform the doctor before starting CYTOGARD 20MG TABLET as a dose adjustment may be required.
