About VINTEL 20MG TABLET

VINTEL 20MG TABLET is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) in adults and to reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke in adults. Essential hypertension is a medical condition in which the blood pressure is elevated persistently in the arteries without any known cause. On the other hand, heart attack or stroke occurs due to blocked blood flow to the heart or brain, respectively.

VINTEL 20MG TABLET works by blocking the action of a hormone called angiotensin II in the body, which causes blood vessels to narrow, leading to high blood pressure. Thereby, VINTEL 20MG TABLET widens and relaxes blood vessels, lowering high blood pressure.

You can take VINTEL 20MG TABLET irrespective of food and swallow it whole with a glass of water. Do not crush, chew, or break it.

Disease/Condition Glossary

High Blood Pressure (Hypertension): When blood pressure rises, too much force develops on the lining of the arteries, making the heart work harder to pump blood throughout the body. This results in damage to the blood vessels. If high blood pressure is left untreated, it can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney failure, and eye problems.

Cardiovascular risk: It is usually diagnosed in patients older than 55 years of age and is characterized by blood vessel disease in the heart, brain, or legs (coronary, peripheral, or cerebral vascular disease) or diabetes with organ damage.
