Q. How does Inapure work in heart failure?
Chronic heart failure is a heart disease which happens when your heart cannot pump enough blood to the rest of your body. Inapure mainly works by reducing the heart rate a few beats per minute. As increased heart rate affects the heart functioning in patients with chronic heart failure, the specific heart rate lowering action of Inapure helps to improve the heart functioning and survival in these patients
Q. How does Inapure reduce angina?
Angina is a heart disease which happens when the heart does not receive enough oxygen. Inapure mainly works by reducing the heart rate a few beats per minute. This lowers the work of heart and heart's need for oxygen especially in the situations when an angina attack is more likely to happen. In this way, Inapure helps to control and reduce the number of angina attacks.
Q. Does Inapure lower blood pressure?
Inapure can lower blood pressure, although it is an uncommon side effect. Uncontrolled blood pressure is a common side effect of Inapure. Please consult your doctor before taking Inapure if you suffer from mild to moderate low blood pressure or if you suffer from uncontrolled blood pressure, especially after a change in your treatment for blood pressure.

Inapure is not a beta blocker. Inapure lowers heart rate by inhibition of the cardiac pacemaker funny (If) current that regulates heart rate, a mechanism different from that of beta blockers.
Q. Is Inapure safe?
Inapure is safe if used at prescribed doses for the prescribed duration as advised by the doctor.
Q. Is Inapure Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved?
Yes, Inapure is approved by Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
