About PLANEP T 10MG TABLET

PLANEP T 10MG TABLET belongs to a class of medicine called 'diuretics' (water pills) primarily used to remove excess water from the body. It also maintains the bloodstream's potassium level and prevents hypertension (high blood pressure) due to oedema (fluid retention). Oedema 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 oedema, accompanied by shortness of breath, chest pain (angina), abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia) and swelling in other hands or abdomen areas.

PLANEP T 10MG TABLET is a combination of medication containing Eplerenone and Torsemide, which are prescribed for the treatment of resistant oedema (fluid overload) associated with pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs), heart failure and hepatic cirrhosis (chronic liver damage). PLANEP T 10MG 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 treats oedema (swelling) associated with heart, liver, kidney or lung disease. This reduces the heart's workload and makes 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 T 10MG TABLET as prescribed by your doctor. You are advised to take PLANEP T 10MG 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 T 10MG 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 T 10MG 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 are suffering from any kidney, liver or heart disease. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please tell your doctor so that the dosage of PLANEP T 10MG TABLET can be prescribed accordingly. Please tell your doctor if you are taking any other medicines or are allergic to PLANEP T 10MG TABLET. Reducing the amount of table salt (sodium chloride) in your food often relieves the body's swelling.
