About Exenta-T 20Mg Kit (10+10) Tablet

Exenta-T 20Mg Kit (10+10) Tablet belongs to a class of medicine called 'diuretics' (water pills) primarily used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). It also maintains the bloodstream's potassium level, removes excess water from the body, and prevents hypertension (high blood pressure) due to oedema (fluid retention). Blood pressure measures the force our heart uses to pump blood to all body parts. 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.

Exenta-T 20Mg Kit (10+10) Tablet contains Eplerenone, which is prescribed for the treatment of hypertension. Exenta-T 20Mg Kit (10+10) Tablet works by increasing the amount of urine that is passed out from the kidneys. It effectively reduces excess fluid levels in the body and the heart's workload, making it more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body. Thus, it also helps lower high blood pressure, reducing the chances of any future heart attack, stroke, or angina (chest pain) in the future.

Take Exenta-T 20Mg Kit (10+10) Tablet as prescribed by your doctor. Depending upon your medical condition, you are advised to take Exenta-T 20Mg Kit (10+10) Tablet for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you. In some cases, you may experience dehydration, electrolyte disturbances (calcium, magnesium, and sodium), constipation, itching, and increased uric acid. Most of these side effects of Exenta-T 20Mg Kit (10+10) Tablet do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.

Try not to stop taking a Exenta-T 20Mg Kit (10+10) Tablet of your own, as doing so may raise your blood pressure, thereby increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke. Inform your doctor if you have any kidney disease (with creatinine clearance less than 30 mL/min), liver disease, high serum potassium (hyperkalemia), diabetes mellitus type 2, and patients with nil urine output (anuria). If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please tell your doctor so that the dosage of Exenta-T 20Mg Kit (10+10) Tablet can be prescribed accordingly. Please tell your doctor if you are taking any other medicines or are allergic to the Exenta-T 20Mg Kit (10+10) Tablet. Reducing the amount of table salt (sodium chloride) in your food often relieves the body's swelling. Please take Exenta-T 20Mg Kit (10+10) Tablet at least 4 hours before sleeping to avoid frequent urination at night.

    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Hypertension: The blood exerts increased pressure on the walls of blood vessels leading to hypertension. High blood pressure is expressed as systolic/diastolic pressure. Systolic pressure is the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats or pumps out blood. Diastolic pressure is the pressure in the arteries between the heartbeats. Blood pressure is measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg) by a blood pressure monitor called a sphygmomanometer. Some of the symptoms are headache, dizziness, nosebleeds, altered vision, chest pain, weakness, and shortness of breath. However, most of the time, the signs and symptoms of hypertension are none.

    Oedema: Oedema, also known as fluid overload, occurs due to fluid build-up in spaces between the cells. Oedema can result from a variety of factors. Some oedema reasons are caused by your lifestyle, while an underlying medical problem causes others. Shortness of breath, chest pain (angina), abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia), and swelling in hands or abdominal areas are the symptoms of oedema.
