About Tormax Plus 5 Tablet 10's

Tormax Plus 5 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.

Tormax Plus 5 Tablet 10's is a combination of medication containing Spirolactone and Torsemide. Both spironolactone and torsemide are diuretics and 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). Tormax Plus 5 Tablet 10's 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.

You can take Tormax Plus 5 Tablet 10's with food or without food with a glass of water. Take it preferably in the daytime to avoid frequent urination in the nighttime. Do not chew, crush or break it. Your doctor will advise you how often you take Tormax Plus 5 Tablet 10's based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience dehydration, electrolyte disturbances (potassium and sodium), headache, nausea, or dizziness. Most of these side effects of Tormax Plus 5 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 Tormax Plus 5 Tablet 10's 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 Tormax Plus 5 Tablet 10's can be prescribed accordingly. Please tell your doctor if you are taking any other medicines or are allergic to Tormax Plus 5 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, also known as fluid overload, occurs due to fluid build-up in spaces between the cells. Oedema can result from a variety of factors. Some oedema reasons are caused by your lifestyle, while an underlying medical problem causes others. Shortness of breath, chest pain (angina), abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia), and swelling in hands or abdominal areas are the symptoms of oedema.

Hypertension: The blood exerts increased pressure on the walls of blood vessels leading to hypertension. High blood pressure is expressed as systolic/diastolic pressure. Systolic pressure is the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats or pumps out blood. Diastolic pressure is the pressure in the arteries between the heartbeats. Blood pressure is measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg) by a blood pressure monitor called a sphygmomanometer. Some of the symptoms are headache, dizziness, nosebleeds, altered vision, chest pain, weakness, and shortness of breath. However, most of the time, the signs and symptoms of hypertension are none.
