INTRODUCTION

CILACAR C 6.25MG TABLET is a combination of Chlorthalidone and Cilnidipine which belongs to the group of medicines called Antihypertensive agents. It is used to treat essential hypertension.

Hypertension also known as high or raised blood pressure, is a condition in which the blood vessels have persistently raised pressure. Blood is carried from the heart to all parts of the body in the vessels. Each time the heart beats, it pumps blood into the vessels. Blood pressure is created by the force of blood pushing against the walls of blood vessels (arteries) as it is pumped by the heart. The higher the pressure, the harder the heart has to pump.

During the course of treatment your doctor might regularly monitor your blood pressure, kidney function and electrolyte balance at regular intervals to avoid any untoward side effects.
