About CETANIL T TABLET
CETANIL T TABLET belongs to the class of anti-hypertensives primarily taken for the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure) and heart-related chest pain (angina). It comprises of Cilnidipine (calcium channel blocker) and Telmisartan (angiotensin receptor blocker). Hypertension is a lifelong or chronic condition in which the force exerted by the blood against the artery walls becomes so high that it leads to heart diseases. Angina is chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart.
CETANIL T TABLET is composed of Cilnidipine and Telmisartan, prescribed to treat hypertension. Cilnidipine blocks the activities of the calcium channels present in the blood vessels of the heart. As a result, the blood vessels widen, and supply to the heart increases, lowering the elevated blood pressure and the workload placed on the heart. Telmisartan works by blocking the action of certain substances that are responsible for tightening the blood vessels. It allows the blood to flow more smoothly and makes the heart more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body. Thus, it reduces the chance of having any heart attack or stroke in the future.
