SALT INFORMATION

Amlodipine(5 mg.)

INDICATORS

Pregnancy:C Lactation:L3 Lab:NA Food:NA

TYPICAL USAGE

Mild to moderate hypertension. Angina pectoris. Prinzmetals angina.

SIDE EFFECTS

Headache, peripheral oedema, fatigue, somnolence, nausea, abdominal pain, flushing, dyspepsia, palpitations, dizziness. Rarely pruritus, rash, dyspnoea, asthenia, muscle cramps. Potentially Fatal: Hypotension, bradycardia, conductive system delay and CCF.

DRUG INTERACTION

Increased metabolism with rifampin. Reduced hypotensive effect with calcium. Potentiates effects of thiazide diuretics and ACE inhibitors. Avoid combination with ?-blockers in patients with markedly impaired left ventricular function. May increase serum levels of CYP1A2 substrates e.g. aminophylline, fluvoxamine, ropinirole. CYP3A4 inhibitors (e.g. clarithromycin, doxycycline, isoniazid, nicardipine) may increase the effects of amlodipine. Additive BP-lowering effects when used with sildenafil, tadalafil or vardenafil.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Amlodipine relaxes peripheral and coronary vascular smooth muscle. It produces coronary vasodilation by inhibiting the entry of Ca ions into the voltage-sensitive channels of the vascular smooth muscle and myocardium during depolarisation. It also increases myocardial O2 delivery in patients with vasospastic angina.

INDICATORS

Pregnancy:D Lactation:L5 Lab:NA Food:NA

TYPICAL USAGE

It is used in the treatment of diabetic nephropathy in hypertensive patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, as well as the treatment of congestive heart failure

SIDE EFFECTS

Dizziness, back pain, sinusitis, pharyngitis and diarrhoea.

DRUG INTERACTION

Telmisartan is known to interact with other drugs like acetylsalicylic acid, amifostine, amiloride, diclofenac, digoxin, fenoprofen, flurbiprofen, ketoprofen, ketorolac, lumiracoxib, meloxicam, nabumetone, spironolactone, tiaprofenic acid, tolmetin, trandolapril. Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Telmisartan interferes with the binding of angiotensin II to the angiotensin II AT1-receptor by binding reversibly and selectively to the receptors in vascular smooth muscle and the adrenal gland. As angiotensin II is a vasoconstrictor, which also stimulates the synthesis and release of aldosterone and improve carbohydrate and lipid metabolism.
