Lorvas 2.5 mg contains Indapamide, an oral antihypertensive/diuretic agent used to treat mild to moderate hypertension. It also reduces excess fluid levels in the body and treats edema (fluid overload) associated with kidney, liver, lung, or heart disease.
In the treatment of hypertension:
Indapamide makes you lose excess water through urine. It may be used as a monotherapy or in combination with other medicines. If your blood is controlled, your risk is kidney problems, stroke, or heart attack. The antihypertensive drug must be taken regularly as prescribed to be effective.
In the treatment of edema:
Edema occurs when your body retains too much moisture. Loves 2.5 mg increases the amount of urine produced, thus helping you get rid of extra water and electrolytes. Getting rid of extra water relieves symptoms such as breathing problems and swelling in your arms, legs, or abdomen. Take medicine regularly and make appropriate lifestyle changes to receive maximum benefits.
One Lorvas 2.5 mg tablet is to be taken daily, by oral route, in the morning. The action of Indapamide is progressive. While the optimum reduction in blood pressure is usually seen after four weeks, a further small but useful reduction in blood pressure may be observed over the following four to six weeks. A larger dose than one tablet of 2.5 mg daily is not recommended as there is little additional hypertensive effect, while the diuretic effect becomes more pronounced.
Your doctor may effectively combine a single daily Lorvas tablet with antihypertensive medicines such as methyldopa, prazosin, methyldopa, beta-blockers, and ACE inhibitors. Combination with a diuretic is not recommended, as significant electrolyte disturbance may happen. Indapamide has a slight but significant carry-over hypotensive effect lasting up to 1 to 2 weeks after the medication is stopped. Indapamide should be taken in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor, and never stop treatment abruptly without discussing it with your doctor. Most people with hypertension do not show symptoms or fall ill, but their condition could worsen if they stop taking the medication.
Patients receiving Lorvas 2.5 mg should be carefully observed, and electrolyte levels should be monitored for symptoms of fluid electrolyte imbalance. The signs of electrolyte imbalance are thirst, dryness of the mouth, drowsiness, lethargy, weakness, muscle fatigue, muscle pains, hypotension, muscle fatigue, restlessness, gastrointestinal disturbances such as nausea, vomiting, ECG changes, and tachycardia. It is important to have your blood pressure checked regularly. The antihypertensive drug is only a part of a treatment program which should also include eating a healthy diet, regular exercise, smoking cessation, weight reduction, and limited alcohol consumption. You can normally eat while taking this medicine but reduce your salt intake.
Common side effects of Lorvas tablet include headache, nausea, and dizziness. Talk to your doctor if these side effects become worrisome, and inform him if you are suffering from liver or kidney disease before taking this medicine. Also, pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before taking medicine. Mention all the medicines you are taking apart from Lorvas. Regular monitoring of kidney function and electrolytes is important while using the medicine.
