Felodipine Facts: A Fast Plendil Review
If you’re someone who cares about your health, you are probably smart enough to learn everything you can about a drug your doctor has prescribed before you actually start taking it. If you’re suffering from angina or high blood pressure, and have been prescribed felodipine, as the Astra Merck medication Plendil, this review will give you a fairly good idea of what to expect.
Forms of Plendil
Plendil is manufactured as tablets, and is available in three different strengths: 2.5 mg, 5 mg, and 10 mg.
It should be stored away from any sources of heat or moisture, but should not be refrigerated.
Plendil is prescribed for those suffering from either the chest pain of angina, or hypertension.
Plendil belongs to the class of medication called calcium channel blockers, and relaxes the arteries by limiting the amount of calcium which reaches them. Calcium can build up on the arterial walls, leading to hardening of the arteries. This condition can eventually cause coronary disease or even heart attack and stroke.
