Trandate Product Description
Trandate is an antihypertensive medication used for the management of all grades of hypertension. Trandate can be used for initial monotherapy of hypertension or as an "add-on" antihypertensive therapy. Trandate is different from other types of antihypertensive medications by that it rarely causes postural hypotension and provides a significant antihypertensive effect:
- without reflex tachycardia
- without cardiac stimulation
- without reduction in heart rate
The maximum maintenance dose of Trandate for the treatment of mild to moderate essential hypertension is 400mg in two divided doses. To treat severe essential hypertension, an increase in the total daily dose of Trandate up to 2.4g in divided doses can be required.
If you forget to use your usual dose of Trandate, take it as soon as possible only if there is much time until the next planned dose of this antihypertensive agent. Trandate doses must be spaced, do not use two tablets of the same antihypertensive agent together.
For the treatment of severe hypertension at home, Trandate is advised to use in combination with diuretics (including thiazides, loop diuretics) and / or other medications to lower high blood pressure. For the treatment of acute hypertensive episodes in hospitalized patients, Trandate intravenous injections or infusions should be used.
Trandate must be stored at room temperature not above 30°C. It is recommended to keep Trandate tablets in the original package in order to protect from light and moisture.
