About Pinom-A 20 Tablet 15's

Pinom-A 20 Tablet 15's is a combination of medication containing blood pressure-lowering medicines primarily used to treat high blood pressure. Pinom-A 20 Tablet 15's is used alone or in combination with other blood pressure-lowering medications. Hypertension or high blood pressure is a chronic condition in which the blood's force against the artery wall is high. As a result, it leads to heart diseases, irregular heartbeat, and other complications.

Pinom-A 20 Tablet 15's contains Olmesartan (angiotensin receptor blocker) and Amlodipine (calcium channel blocker). Olmesartan 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. Amlodipine, on the other hand, acts by relaxing the blood vessels. This reduces the heart's workload and makes the heart more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body. Thus, collectively, both help lower high blood pressure, reducing heart attack, or stroke chances. 

You can take Pinom-A 20 Tablet 15's with food or without food with a glass of water. Do not chew, bite, or break it. Your doctor will advise you how often you should take your tablets based on your medical condition. You may experience headaches, drowsiness, ankle swelling, nausea, dizziness, low blood pressure in some cases. Most of these side effects of Pinom-A 20 Tablet 15's do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor. It is advisable to drink plenty of fluids while taking Pinom-A 20 Tablet 15's.

Disease/Condition Glossary

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. Systolic pressure is the pressure with which the heart pumps blood out. On the other hand, diastolic pressure is 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.
