10 CHEWABLE TABLETS
TOR 5MG TABLET belongs to a group of medicines called diuretics (which increase the production of urine) and is primarily used to treat high blood pressure, heart failure, and oedema (a build-up of fluid in the body). Hypertension or high blood pressure is a chronic condition in which the force exerted by the blood against the artery wall is high. The higher this blood pressure, the harder the heart has to pump. As a result, it leads to heart diseases, irregular heartbeat, and other complications. Oedema may occur in case of high blood pressure where fluids of the body get trapped in the tissues of the hands, arms, feet, ankles, and legs leading to its swelling.
TOR 5MG 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 workload on the heart and makes the heart more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body. Thus, it helps to lower high blood pressure, reducing the chances of heart attack or stroke.
You can take TOR 5MG TABLET with food or without food. It should be swallowed whole with a glass of water. Do not chew, bite, or break it. Your doctor will advise you how often you take your tablets based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience dehydration, headache, nausea, or dizziness, and muscle cramps, or weak muscles. Most of these side effects of TOR 5MG 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 TOR 5MG TABLET of your own. Let your doctor know about this, as it may cause a rise in blood pressure and can increase the risk of getting heart diseases and stroke. Inform your doctor if you are suffering from any kidney or liver or heart disease. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please tell your doctor so that the dosage of TOR 5MG TABLET can be prescribed accordingly. Please tell your doctor if you are taking any other medicines or are allergic to TOR 5MG TABLET. Reducing the amount of table salt (sodium chloride) in your food often relieves the swelling of the body.
