About Ranofit 100mg Tablet

Ranofit 100mg Tablet is used alone or with other medicines to treat angina pectoris. Angina pectoris is discomfort in the chest or chest pain, which generally occurs due to coronary artery disease (CAD) when an adequate amount of oxygen and blood is not reaching the heart and its muscles. It can also be due to the blockage of the heart's arteries. It helps prevent any further attack of angina by making the heart work more efficiently, and it is used as an add-on to existing treatment in patients whose disease is not adequately controlled by other medicines for angina pectoris, such as beta-blockers or calcium antagonists, or in patients who cannot take these medicines.

The active substance in Ranofit 100mg Tablet is Ranolazine, which reduces sodium ions flow into the heart muscle cells. This interferes with the activity of special channels on the cell surface called 'sodium-dependent calcium channels, through which calcium ions normally enter the cells. This reduces the number of calcium ions that enter the cells. Calcium ions normally cause the heart muscle to contract. By reducing the flow of calcium into the cells, Ranofit 100mg Tablet is thought to help the heart relax, improving blood flow to the heart muscle and relieving the symptoms of angina pectoris.
