ERITEL LN HS 40MG TABLET belongs to the class of anti-hypertensives primarily taken for the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure) and heart-related chest pain (angina). It comprises of Cilnidipine (calcium channel blocker) and Telmisartan (angiotensin receptor blocker). Hypertension is a lifelong or chronic condition in which the force exerted by the blood against the artery walls becomes so high that it leads to heart diseases. Angina is chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart.
ERITEL LN HS 40MG TABLET is composed of Cilnidipine and Telmisartan, prescribed to treat hypertension. Cilnidipine blocks the activities of the calcium channels present in the blood vessels of the heart. As a result, the blood vessels widen, and supply to the heart increases, lowering the elevated blood pressure and the workload placed on the heart. Telmisartan works by blocking the action of certain substances that are responsible for tightening the blood vessels. It allows the blood to flow more smoothly and makes the heart more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body. Thus, it reduces the chance of having any heart attack or stroke in the future.

Due to its calcium channel blocking nature it may be also prescribed for relieving the heart’s workload caused due to the heart attack or stroke. Telmisartan works by blocking the action of certain substances that are responsible for tightening the blood vessels. It allows the blood to flow more smoothly and makes the heart more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body. Thus, it reduces the chance of having any heart attack or stroke in the future.

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 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.
