INTRODUCTION

BENITOWA 8MG contain Benidipine hydrochloride which belongs to a group of medicine called calcium channel blocker. It is used to treat hypertension, renal parenchymal hypertension, and angina pectoris. Hypertension is a condition in which the force of the blood against the artery wall is too high. High blood pressure often has no symptoms. Over time, if untreated, it can cause health condition such as heart disease and stroke.

Renal parenchymal hypertension is a form of secondary hypertension caused by kidney diseases. Angina pectoris is the medical term for chest pain or discomfort due to coronary heart diseases. It occurs when the heart muscle does not get as much blood as it needs. This usually happens because one or more of the heart arteries is narrowed or blocked. It is also called ischemia.

BENITOWA 8MG works by blocking calcium inflow into cells and consequently dilates constricted vessels to decrease blood pressure. It also dilates coronary arteries of the heart to prevent developing anginal attack. Before taking this medicine tell your doctor if you have ever had kidney disease, heart disease, liver problems. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before taking this medicine.
