About Planep 50 Tablet 10's

Planep 50 Tablet 10's 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 50 Tablet 10's contains Eplerenone, which is prescribed for the treatment of hypertension. Planep 50 Tablet 10's 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.

Try not to stop taking Planep 50 Tablet 10's 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 50 Tablet 10's can be prescribed accordingly. Please tell your doctor if you are taking any other medicines or are allergic to Planep 50 Tablet 10's.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Hypertension: 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. 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. 

Edema: Edema or fluid overload is associated with pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the lung) or heart failure (irregular pumping of heart). Leg swelling is the main characteristic of edema, accompanied by shortness of breath, chest pain (angina), abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia), and swelling in other hands or abdomen areas.
