Eptus 25 mg improves the survival of patients with congestive heart failure after a severe heart attack. Doctors also prescribe this medicine for treating hypertension (high blood pressure). Eptus work by lowering blood pressure and reducing the risk of heart complications, primarily stroke and heart attack.
It contains the active ingredient eplerenone, a diuretic that increases the urine passing from the kidneys. It effectively reduces excess fluid levels in the body, reduces heart workload, and makes the heart more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body.
Treatment should be started with 25 mg daily, and may increase the dose to 50 mg once a day, preferably within four weeks if the patient tolerates 25 mg. Eptus may be taken with or without food. Patients may sometimes experience dehydration, itching, increased uric acid, constipation, and electrolyte disturbances. Taking the tablet with food can reduce the side effects, and taking it early in the day can prevent you from waking up in the middle of the night to go to the toilet. You should keep using the medicine exactly as your doctor has prescribed. If you have been prescribed Eptus for high blood pressure, lifestyle changes such as taking regular exercises and changes to your diet regimen will boost the effectiveness of this medicine.
Try not to take Eptus 25 mg of your own, as doing so may increase your blood pressure, increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke. Tell your doctor if you have renal impairment, liver disease, diabetes mellitus type 2, or anuria (failure of the kidneys to produce urine). If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please tell your doctor so that the dosage of Eptus can be prescribed accordingly. Please, let your doctor know if you are taking any other medicine or are allergic to Eplerenone. Reducing the amount of table salt in your diet often relieves the body’s swelling. Please take the Eplerenone tablet at least four hours before sleeping to avoid frequent urination at night. Avoid taking Eptus along with lithium to prevent serious side effects. While taking this medicine, you may be advised to limit your intake of salt and should have your blood pressure checked regularly.
The common side effects include headache, cough, dizziness, and diarrhoea. If these side effects bother you or appear serious, inform your doctor immediately. There may be ways of reducing or preventing them. Alcohol consumption may increase certain side effects.
