About Myotan CT 40/12.5 Tablet 10's

Myotan CT 40/12.5 Tablet 10's belongs to the class of drugs called anti-hypertensive agents primarily used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a medical condition in which the blood pressure is elevated persistently in the arteries. High blood pressure is mostly caused by obesity, diabetes, smoking, high salt intake, stress, lack of physical activity or ageing.

Myotan CT 40/12.5 Tablet 10's consists of two medicines, namely: Azilsartan and Chlorthalidone. Azilsartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) that works by blocking the hormone angiotensin. This helps relax the blood vessels, allowing the blood to flow more smoothly and the heart to pump more efficiently. Chlorthalidone belongs to thiazide diuretics (water pill) which inhibits fluid retention or build-up. Thus, it relaxes the blood vessels and improves blood circulation. Together, Myotan CT 40/12.5 Tablet 10's helps lower raised blood pressure.

Your doctor will decide the dosage and duration based on your medical condition. In some cases, Myotan CT 40/12.5 Tablet 10's can cause side effects like nausea, taste changes, stomach upset, diarrhoea, headache, weakness, dizziness, and decreased blood pressure. Most of these side effects of Myotan CT 40/12.5 Tablet 10's do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if these side effects persist longer, please consult your doctor.

Before taking Myotan CT 40/12.5 Tablet 10's, let your doctor know if you have kidney, liver problems or severe dehydration. Avoid using Myotan CT 40/12.5 Tablet 10's if you are pregnant. Breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before taking Myotan CT 40/12.5 Tablet 10's. Do not consume alcohol with Myotan CT 40/12.5 Tablet 10's as it may increase the risk of side effects. Avoid driving or operating machinery if you experience dizziness. Keep your doctor informed about your health condition and medications to rule out any interactions.

Medicinal Benefits

Myotan CT 40/12.5 Tablet 10's is a combination of Azilsartan and Chlorthalidone. It is used to treat high blood pressure. Azilsartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB). It works by blocking the hormone angiotensin, thereby relaxing blood vessels. This allows the blood to flow more smoothly and the heart to pump more efficiently. Chlorthalidone is a diuretic that removes extra water and certain electrolytes from the body. Over time it also relaxes blood vessels and improves blood flow. Together, Myotan CT 40/12.5 Tablet 10's helps treat high blood pressure.

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Hypertension: Hypertension is a medical condition in which blood pressure is elevated persistently in the arteries. It is considered an essential risk factor for cardiovascular diseases and can be caused due to obesity, diabetes, smoking, high salt intake, stress, lack of physical activity or ageing. Blood pressure is measured in the ratio of systolic pressure to diastolic pressure. 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. The ideal blood pressure range lies between 90/60 mmHg and 120/80 mmHg. It is considered high blood pressure if the blood pressure is 140/90 mmHg or greater.
