Other side effects: as with the use of other BPCs in patients with severe occlusive coronary disease, progression of symptoms of angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, arrhythmias (atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia — which, however, cannot be differentiated from the underlying disease), can occur.
Dosage and administration
Cardilopin accept inside. For the treatment of arterial hypertension or angina, the usual initial dose is 5 mg once a day. Given the response of the patient, the initial dose may be increased to 10 mg once a day. The dose of Cardilopin does not change in the case of its simultaneous use with diuretics from the thiazide group, beta-blockers or ACE inhibitors.
Elderly patients, as well as in violation of the function of the kidneys, the drug is prescribed in usual doses.
The dose of Cardilopin should be reduced (up to 2.5 mg per day) in patients with impaired liver function, since T1 / 2 drug in such patients increases.
In the dark place at a temperature of 15-25 ° C.
