A control of the arterial tension is the main task in cardiology. If the blood pressure is normal, the load to the heart is reduced, a conductivity of the blood vessels, nutrition with oxygen and blood are improved. Altace has been developed in order to control the arterial tension in people of all ages.
Altace is used for the treatment of many cardiovascular diseases. It contains an active ingredient Ramipril which belongs to a group of ACE inhibitors.
Altace has an intense antihypertensive action which consists in the inhibition of angiotensine transforming enzyme. Due to the inhibition of the action of this enzyme, a synthesis of angiotensine II hormone is reduced that provides a vasoconstrictor action.
Altace reduces a risk of death in patients with myocardial infarction and heart failure. It reduces the load to the cardiac muscle, enhances the coronary and renal blood flow, favors better nutrition of myocardium with oxygen. Using Altace reduces aggregation of platelets, improves the blood circulation in the blood vessels and increases a sensitivity of the tissues to insulin. Patients with pancreatic diabetes and high level of cholesterol will reduce a risk of a stroke or heart attack with the help of Altace.
A pharmacological action of Altace (including hypotensive) begins in an hour after the peroral use of a therapeutic dose and lasts for a day.
Indications for the use
- Arterial hypertension
- Chronic heart failure
- Diabetic nephropathy
- Prevention of coronary stroke and/or heart attack in patients with coronary heart disease
In what dose is Altace used?
During the background therapy of the arterial hypertension, patients are prescribed a pill of Altace 2,5 mg per day. If a hypotensive effect is not enough, the dose is gradually increased by 2,5 mg every 3-4 weeks. The maximal daily dose of Altace is 10 mg.
Altace is prescribed in the dose of 2,5 mg per day within a long time to prevent the cardiovascular complications, during IHD, heart failure or other cardiovascular pathologies.
Patients of senior age (over 65 years old) are recommended to start the treatment from the minimal daily dose of Altace 1,25 mg.
Recommendations for the use
- Altace may be used with diuretics but the dose of diuretic should be reduced to lower a risk of hypotension
- Alcohol consumption is not recommended during the treatment
- It is necessary to regularly take tests and check the following rates during the treatment: kidney function – creatinine, urea; K +, plasma electrolytes, liver enzymes
- Altace is contraindicated during renal artery stenosis, allergic reaction to Ramipril or intolerance of ACE inhibitors
- Do not take Altace during pregnancy
As every patient may have an individual reaction to the use of Altace, it is impossible to predict the side effects. Most patients do not experience any negative reaction during the therapy but in rare cases the side effects may appear. The possible side effects of Altace are: arrhythmia, hypotension, vestibular disorders, cough, anemia, nausea, and indigestion.
