Indications & Dosage of Sular
Sular is used to treat hypertension. Hypertension makes it difficult for the heart and arteries to function as it puts more pressure on the blood vessels. This in turn affects the entire body function. Sular helps in reducing blood pressure by slowing down calcium flow to the heart and blood vessel walls. As a result, the blood vessels relax and thereby increase the supply of oxygen and blood to the heart.
The dose of Sular depends on the medical condition of the patient and the doctor’s prescription. The medical condition of the patient also determines the frequency and the total duration of the medication. The normal dose for tablets is 10-20 mg per day for adults. If there are no side effects, the doctor may increase the dose. For children, the dose depends on the doctor’s prescription.
Sular must not be taken one hour before or two hours after heavy meals. Don’t split the tablet before intake. Don’t increase the dose without consulting the doctor, and also don’t take double doses.
