About Vitax Syrup 200 ml

Vitax Syrup 200 ml belongs to a group of medicines called angiotensin II receptor antagonists that are used for the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure). Additionally, Vitax Syrup 200 ml is used to reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke and kidney problems.  Hypertension is a medical condition, in which the blood exerts high blood pressure against the walls of the blood vessels. Due to this, the heart has to work harder to pump the supply of blood in the whole body. On the other hand, heart attack or stroke occurs due to blocked blood flow to the heart or brain, respectively.

Vitax Syrup 200 ml contains Olmesartan, and it is only available on prescription. It is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB). It works by blocking the hormone angiotensin, thereby relaxing blood vessels. This allows the blood to flow more smoothly and the heart to pump more efficiently.

    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Hypertension: It is a chronic condition when blood pressure is too high. Blood pressure is defined as the amount of blood pumped by the heart and the amount of resistance exerted by the arteries against the blood flow.  If the heart pumps more blood then arteries become narrower and in turn blood pressure becomes high.  If blood pressure becomes uncontrolled, then it may cause serious heart disease including stroke and heart attack. Additionally, high blood pressure also causes brain damage (stroke), and kidney failure. Blood pressure is expressed by systolic and diastolic. Systolic blood pressure represents the contraction and relaxation of the heart. Diastolic represents the pressure in the vessels when the heart beats and in a resting state. Ideal blood pressure should be between 90/60mmHg and 120/80mmHg. Hypertension is detected when systolic blood pressure is more than 140mmHg and diastolic pressure is higher than 90mmHg. Some of the symptoms of hypertension include headache, nose bleed, vomiting, and chest pain.
