About Proparise 40mg Tablet

Proparise 40mg Tablet is used alone or together with other medicines to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), heart-related chest pain (angina), heart rhythm disorder (arrhythmia) and preventing symptoms of migraine headache and tremors (fits). It affects our heart and blood circulatory system, especially controlling blood through arteries and veins. High blood pressure adds to the workload of the heart and arteries. If it continues for a long time, the heart and arteries may not function properly. This can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart and kidneys, resulting in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure. Lowering blood pressure may reduce the risk of stroke and heart attacks.

Proparise 40mg Tablet plays a vital role in relaxing our blood vessels by blocking the action of certain natural substances in your body. This lowers your blood pressure and helps reduce your risk of a stroke, a heart attack, other heart problems or kidney problems in the future. This medicine needs to be taken regularly to be effective.

You can take Proparise 40mg Tablet orally with or without food or as directed by your physician. Swallow the whole tablet with a glass of water. Do not crush, chew or break it. Proparise 40mg Tablet is preferable to take at the same time every day for better results. Proparise 40mg Tablet is generally safe to consume.

This, in turn, lowers your overall body's blood pressure and helps reduce the risk of a stroke, a heart attack, heart problems or kidney problems in the future. Proparise 40mg Tablet also improves the symptoms of heart-related chest pain (angina) and may increase a person's stamina to do exercise with angina.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Blood pressure: Blood pressure 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 and heart workload are 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 or sphygmomanometer. Systolic pressure is the pressure when the heart pumps blood out. On the other hand, diastolic pressure is the pressure 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 and 120/80 mm Hg.
