Long acting calcium channel blocker – highly lipophilic & vasoselective
Of the Dihydropyridine Group
Zanidip® belongs to the dihydropyridine class of calcium antagonist. It is used for the treatment of hypertension or isolated systolic hypertension as an add-on therapy. Zanidip® prevents the calcium buildup in the heart muscles and relaxes the blood vessels for free blood circulation around the body. This calcium blocking lowers blood pressure and improves the overall heart efficiency. Zanidip®, with balanced hepato-renal clearance, also helps prevent heart disease, heart attacks and strokes.
With Zanidip® add-on therapy, there are no chances of:
- Negative inotropic effect
- Reflex tachycardia
- Ankle oedema
Each Zanidip® tablet contains lercanidipine hydrochloride as an active ingredient. Lercanidipine treats hypertension by making your heart easily pump the blood throughout the body.
- Zanidip® is used for the treatment of mild to moderately high blood pressure fluctuations and essential hypertension.
Dosage & Instructions
The normal recommended dosage of Zanidip® is 10 mg once a day, taken orally at least 15 minutes before the meal.
