INTRODUCTION

BENITIME 4 contains Benidipine which belongs to the group of medicines called Calcium channel blockers. It is used to treat hypertension. Hypertension (also known as high blood pressure) is a medical condition in which the force of the blood exerted against the walls of the artery remains very high, and as a result it may lead to severe damage to the blood vessels supplying several organs such as heart, kidney, or brain, thus causing heart attack, heart failure, kidney failure, stroke, or even blindness.

BENITIME 4 can also be used to treat renal parenchymal hypertension (high blood pressure in the kidneys caused due to kidney problems) and angina pectoris. Angina pectoris is a sudden, sharp, and severe chest pain that originates from the apex of the heart and radiates to the left shoulder. It can be characterized by the presence of severe and crushing pain along with a feeling of pressure and suffocation, especially behind the breastbone.

Benidipine works by relaxing the blood vessels supplying the heart. It improves blood flow and oxygen supply to the heart, which therefore reduces pressure on the heart and makes it easier for the heart to pump blood throughout the body. It also exerts protective effects on the kidney cells by reducing the blood pressure within the kidneys.

Before taking BENITIME 4 inform your doctor if you have any liver problems or heart problems (such as severe low blood pressure or cardiac shock). Avoid drinking grapefruit juice while taking BENITIME 4 as it may further decrease your blood pressure. Before taking BENITIME 4, inform your doctor if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. The most common side effects of taking BENITIME 4 are rapid heartbeat, headache, and dizziness. Consult your doctor if any of these side effect worsens.

USES OF BENITIME 4

  • Treats hypertension (high blood pressure) and renal parenchymal hypertension
  • Treats and prevents chest pain associated with angina pectoris

HOW BENITIME 4 WORKS

BENITIME 4 reduces blood pressure and chest pain, where benidipine acts by relaxing the blood vessels supplying the heart. As a result, it improves blood flow to the heart which therefore reduces the pressure on the heart, thus making it easier for the heart to pump blood throughout the body. It also improves oxygen supply to the heart, which therefore reduces ischemic symptoms (such as chest pain and heaviness) associated with angina. Benidipine can also relax the blood vessels supplying the kidneys which therefore reduces pressure within the kidneys and prevents further kidney damage.
