FAQs

Q. What is the use of Twincal?

Twincal 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 Twincal?

Both these medicines are used in the treatment of blood pressure and are equally good in effectively reducing the blood pressure. Twincal 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, Twincal 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 Twincal?

Twincal 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 Twincal good for patients of high blood pressure with kidney impairment?

Yes, Twincal 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 Twincal?

Taking more than the recommended dose of Twincal 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 Twincal, consult your doctor immediately. Do not go out or perform any work which might make you sick or faint.
