About PLANEP 25MG TABLET

PLANEP 25MG 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 edema (fluid retention). Blood pressure is the measurement of the force that 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.

PLANEP 25MG TABLET contains Eplerenone, which is prescribed for the treatment of hypertension. PLANEP 25MG 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 reduces the heart's workload, making the heart 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 PLANEP 25MG TABLET as prescribed by your doctor. You are advised to take PLANEP 25MG TABLET for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you, depending upon your medical condition. You may experience dehydration, electrolyte disturbances (calcium, magnesium, and sodium), constipation, itching, increased uric acid in some cases. Most of these side effects of PLANEP 25MG 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 PLANEP 25MG TABLET of your own as doing so may raise your blood pressure, thereby increasing the risk of getting heart diseases 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 PLANEP 25MG TABLET can be prescribed accordingly. Please tell your doctor if you are taking any other medicines or are allergic to PLANEP 25MG TABLET. Reducing the amount of table salt (sodium chloride) in your food often relieves the body's swelling. Please take PLANEP 25MG TABLET at least 4 hours before sleeping to avoid frequent urination at night. Also, do not take PLANEP 25MG TABLET along with lithium to avoid serious side-effects. St. John's wort plant should not be taken along with PLANEP 25MG TABLET.
