What is Physiotens?
Physiotens is used to treat essential hypertension (high blood pressure). While it does not have obvious symptoms associated with sickness, untreated hypertension can damage blood vessels and organs that do not get enough blood. It can also lead to stroke and heart failure. It's often used when ACE inhibitors are not treating your symptoms. It is classified as an antihypertensive drug.
Physiotens is taken orally, with food and water, as often as recommended by your doctor. You may start on a lower dose which may increase based on the result of treatment.
They need to make sure you are taking the lowest possible dose to prevent common side effects. It comes in 0.2 mg, 0.3mg and 0.4 mg film coated tablets. You may need to take two 0.3mg tablets to get a 0.6 mg daily dose.
Your dose is based on your age, body weight, medical condition and history of treatment. Patients with renal impairment may need to take a lower dose.
Do not cut, chew or split the tablets as it may affect how the medication works. If you are not able to swallow the tablets, talk to your healthcare provider for medical advice.
It works best when taken consistently everyday. Do not take extra doses as they will not improve your condition and may lead to an additional risk of side effects. If you miss a dose you can take it when you remember. If it’s almost time for your next dose, you can skip the missed dose and continue with your schedule.
It works by relaxing the blood vessels and allowing blood to flow more easily. When the muscles are too tight, they are not wide enough to provide adequate blood flow. Treating hypertension allows blood to properly flow throughout the body.
