Cilipride 10mg Tablet

Prescription Required

Overview

Introduction

Cilipride 10mg Tablet is a medicine used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and to prevent angina (heart-related chest pain). It is known as a calcium channel blocker and helps to lower blood pressure and reduce the workload of the heart. This helps prevent heart attacks and strokes.

Cilipride 10mg Tablet may be prescribed alone or along with other medicines. The dose depends on what you are taking it for and the severity of your condition. You can take it at any time of day, with or without food, but it is best to take it at the same time each day.  Keep taking it for as long as advised by your doctor. Even if you feel well, do not stop this medicine on your own because high blood pressure often has no symptoms. If you stop taking it, your condition may get worse.

Keeping active with regular exercise, reducing your weight and eating a healthy diet will also help control your blood pressure. Follow your doctor’s advice while taking this medicine.

The most common side effects include fatigue, swelling in the feet or ankles, sleepiness, dizziness, flushing, the unusual beating of the heart (palpitations) and headache. Consult your doctor if any of these bother you, or do not go away. Side effects like swelling in the feet or ankles and palpitations are lesser in severity than other similar medicines of the group. Reportedly, it also has a better protective effect on the kidneys.
Before taking it, let your doctor know if you have any liver, kidney or heart problems. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also consult their doctor for advice before taking this medicine. You also need to tell your doctor what other medicines you are taking, especially those used to treat high blood pressure or heart conditions. You should have your blood pressure checked regularly to make sure that this medicine is working properly.

FAQs

Q. What is the use of Cilipride?

Cilipride is a medicine used to treat high blood pressure. It belongs to a group of medicines which block the calcium channels in the blood vessel. It works by relaxing the blood vessels in patients with high blood pressure. This widens the diameter of the blood vessels which helps the blood to pass through them more easily.

Q. Which is better amlodipine or Cilipride?

Both these medicines are used in the treatment of blood pressure and are equally good in effectively reducing the blood pressure. Cilipride has also been found to be beneficial in patients with kidney problems as compared to amlodipine. Additionally, while Amlodipine may have chances of causing mild ankle swelling, Cilipride has been found to have lesser chances of causing ankle swelling. Your doctor will suggest either of these after seeing what suits you.

Q. What are the side effects of Cilipride?

Cilipride is generally well tolerated but sometimes can also be associated with side effects like headache, dizziness, flushing, palpitations, low blood pressure, and stomach problems. It may also cause increased urination, ankle swelling, and lethargy. These side effects are not common in everyone but may occur in some individuals. Do consult your doctor if you notice any side effects after taking this medicine.

Q. Is Cilipride good for patients of high blood pressure with kidney impairment?

Yes, Cilipride has been shown to have protective effects on the kidney cells, thereby preventing them from damage. It has also been shown to decrease protein leakage from the kidney in patients who have diabetes as well as high blood pressure.

Q. What happens if we take more than the recommended dose of Cilipride?

Taking more than the recommended dose of Cilipride can lead to an abnormal decrease in blood pressure levels. This can make you feel dizzy, lightheaded or faint. In severe cases of overdose, the skin can feel cool and clammy. In case you have taken a higher dose Cilipride, consult your doctor immediately. Do not go out or perform any work which might make you sick or faint.
