Bemzire 180mg Tablet


Product introduction

Bemzire 180mg Tablet is used to lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. Cholesterol is a fatty substance that builds up in your blood vessels and causes narrowing, possibly leading to a heart attack or stroke.

Bemzire 180mg Tablet is used in combination with other medicines that lower cholesterol levels, such as statins. It may be taken with a meal or on an empty stomach. You can take it at any time of the day, but try to take it at the same time each day. Most people with high cholesterol do not feel ill, but if you stop taking this medicine, your condition could worsen. This may lead to your cholesterol levels rising again and increasing your risk of heart disease and stroke.


It is important to have cholesterol levels checked regularly. Bemzire 180mg Tablet is only one part of the treatment program, which should also include a healthy diet, regular exercise, smoking cessation, moderation of alcohol intake, and weight reduction. Eat normally while taking this medicine, but try to avoid foods high in fat.


The most common side effects of this medicine include respiratory tract infections, muscle spasms, back pain, pain in the shoulder, legs, or arms, stomach pain, anemia, and increased liver enzymes. Before taking it, let the doctor know if you are suffering from liver or kidney disease. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult the doctor before taking this medicine.
