Benefits of Cardimax Tablet SR

In Treatment of Angina (heart-related chest pain)

Angina is chest pain or discomfort that happens when there is not enough oxygen-rich blood going to part of your heart. This can occur when the blood vessels of the heart become narrow. By preserving energy metabolism in cells exposed to reduced oxygen supply, Cardimax SR Tablet prevents a decrease in intracellular energy levels, thereby ensuring the proper functioning of heart muscle cells. Cardimax SR Tablet can also help increase your ability to exercise and lead your daily life more easily by reducing the frequency of angina attacks. You should take it regularly and as long as it is prescribed for it to work effectively.

Research shows that the frequency of angina attacks reduces significantly after 6 months of treatment with Cardimax SR Tablet.
