About Gudpres AM 25 Tablet 10's

Gudpres AM 25 Tablet 10's belongs to the class of drugs known as antihypertensive, used to treat hypertension (increased blood pressure). Hypertension (high blood pressure) 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. If it continues for a long time, the heart and arteries may not function properly. This can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart, and kidneys, resulting in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure. Lowering blood pressure may reduce the risk of stroke and heart attacks.

Gudpres AM 25 Tablet 10's is a fixed-dose combination composed of two medicines, namely: Amlodipine and Metoprolol. Amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker while Metoprolol belongs to a group of medicines called beta-blockers. Metoprolol relaxes blood vessels by blocking the action of certain natural substances in your body. On the other hand, Amlodipine widens and relaxes the blood vessels making the heart more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body. Together, it helps to lower high blood pressure, reducing the chances of heart attack or stroke. Gudpres AM 25 Tablet 10's is prescribed to adults and children more than six years of age.

Metoprolol plays a vital role in relaxing our blood vessels and lowering blood pressure by blocking the action of certain natural substances in your body.  Besides this, Gudpres AM 25 Tablet 10's help prevent spasm of the coronary artery and reduces how hard the heart has to work to pump blood around the body, lowering its oxygen requirements.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Blood pressure 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.
