About Planep T 20 mg Tablet 10's

Planep T 20 mg Tablet 10's 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 heart pumping). 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 20 mg Tablet 10's is a combination of medications 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 20 mg Tablet 10's works by increasing the amount of urine 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).

Take Planep T 20 mg Tablet 10's as prescribed by your doctor. You are advised to take Planep T 20 mg Tablet 10's for as long as your doctor has prescribed it. In some cases, you may experience dehydration, electrolyte disturbances (calcium, magnesium, and sodium), constipation, increased uric acid and itching. Most of these side effects of Planep T 20 mg Tablet 10's 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 20 mg Tablet 10's of your own, as doing so may raise your blood pressure, thereby increasing the risk of getting a heart attack and stroke. Inform your doctor if you suffer from any kidney, liver or heart disease. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please tell your doctor so that the dosage of Planep T 20 mg Tablet 10's can be prescribed accordingly. Please tell your doctor if you are taking any other medicines or are allergic to Planep T 20 mg Tablet 10's. Reducing the amount of table salt (sodium chloride) in your food often relieves the body's swelling.

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Oedema: Oedema or fluid overload is associated with pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the lung) or heart failure (irregular heart pumping). The main characteristics of Oedema are leg swelling,  shortness of breath, chest pain (angina), abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia) and swelling in other hands or abdomen areas.

    Hypertension: Blood pressure measures our heart's force 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 the blood supply to the heart is blocked). 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, the systolic pressure is 140 mm, and the diastolic pressure is 90 mm. Ideal blood pressure should be between 90/60 mm of Hg and 120/80 mm of Hg.

This is usually the case with Oedema due to certain health conditions, such as heart failure or kidney failure. If it does not subside, please consult your doctor immediately.
