Iverzac 5mg Tablet

Prescription Required

Overview

Introduction

Iverzac 5mg Tablet is a medicine used for treatment of angina (heart-related chest pain) and chronic (long-term) heart failure. It makes the heart work more efficiently by lowering the heart rate. This relieves chest pain and decreases the risk of hospitalization in heart failure patients.

The dose will depend on what you are being treated for. Since the treatment for angina or heart failure is usually life-long, you should not stop using it without talking to your doctor.  It should be taken with food at the same time each day. If you take too much in one go, your heart could slow down too much and make you feel breathless or tired. If this happens, call a doctor.

The most common side effects are temporary brightness in your vision and changes to your heart function. You may also experience uncontrolled blood pressure, headache, dizziness and blurred vision. Some side effects such as fainting and significant changes to your heartbeat may be very serious and may need urgent medical attention. Avoid driving until you know how this medicine will affect you.

Do not use Iverzac 5mg Tablet if you have severe liver disease, have a low resting heart rate or a heart rhythm disorder. This medicine is also not suitable if you have very low blood pressure and heart failure that has recently become worse. This medicine interacts with certain other medicines used to treat high blood pressure, fungal infections and HIV. Do not take it if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or breastfeeding.

How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Slow heart rate
    Splash your face with cold water and breathe deeply. This will help you to relax. Exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet and maintain a healthy weight. Manage your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Limit your alcohol intake or drink in moderation, do not smoke and manage your stress levels. If your condition does not improve, speak to your doctor as you may be offered a different type of medicine.
  • Coping with Headache
    Make sure you rest and drink plenty of fluids. Rest in a quiet, dimly lit room. Do not sleep more than you normally would. Do not strain your eyes (for example by looking at a screen). Do not drink alcohol. Headaches are usually temporary and usually go away with time. But, if they last longer or get worse, ask your doctor to recommend a painkiller.
  • Coping with High blood pressure
    You can reduce your blood pressure by eating less salt, eating more fruit and vegetables, reducing the amount of alcohol you drink, being more active and losing weight. You could also reduce your caffeine intake (found in tea, coffee and cola drinks). Also, if you smoke, seek advice about quitting. High blood pressure can be treated with a range of different medicines. You should ask your doctor whether you need medication. Keep in touch with your doctor and get your blood pressure checked regularly.

User Feedback


FAQs

Q. What type of drug is Iverzac?

Iverzac is a heart medicine. It belongs to a class of medicine known as hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated (HCN) channel blockers. It works by slowing the heart rate. This helps the heart to pump more blood through the body each time it beats.

Q. Does Iverzac affect vision?

Iverzac may cause temporary brightness in the field of vision (luminous visual phenomena). This usually disappears with continuous use of Iverzac. If this happens to you, be careful when driving or using machines at times when there could be sudden changes in light intensity, especially when driving at night.

Q. What are the symptoms of overdosage of Iverzac?

The symptoms of overdosage of Iverzac include slow heartbeat, dizziness, excessive tiredness and lack of energy. If you have taken higher than the recommended dose or experience any of these, consult your doctor immediately or seek emergency medical attention.

Q. What is the most important information that I should know about Iverzac?

You should remember that Iverzac may cause serious side effects in adults and children. Its use in pregnant women can harm the unborn baby. Some of the other serious side effects may include increased risk of irregular or rapid heartbeat (atrial fibrillation or heart rhythm problems) and slower than normal heart rate (bradycardia).

Q. Does Iverzac lower blood pressure?

No, Iverzac commonly causes an increase in blood pressure as a side effect. This change is temporary and does not affect the treatment with Iverzac. However, it should not be given to patients with severely low blood pressure (blood pressure < 90/50 mmHg).

Q. Is Iverzac a beta-blocker?

No, Iverzac is not a beta-blocker. It lowers the heart rate by selectively blocking the sodium channel present in heart pacemaker cells responsible for the increase in the heart rate.
