AMLODIPINE 2.5MG (100 TABLETS)

Generic Name: amlodipine
Brand Name: Norvasc
Drug class: Calcium channel blocking agents

Norvasc and its generic amlodipine is available in strengths of: 2.5mg, 5mg, and 10mg tablets.

Amlodipine belongs to the class of medications called calcium channel blockers which are used to treat high blood pressure in adults and children 6 years and older, and angina (chest pain). High blood pressure adds to the workload of the heart and arteries. If the additional workload is untreated or left unmanaged, the heart and arteries may not function properly. This can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart, and kidneys, resulting in a stroke, heart or kidney failure.

Amlodipine works to lower blood pressure by exerting a peripheral vasodilating effect through a direct relaxation of vascular smooth muscle. This response is achieved by the interference of cellular calcium transport within intracellular compartments. The interference in movement of calcium ions into vascular smooth muscle cells and cardiac muscle cells directly affects those muscle cells ability to initiate and maintain a contractile state. As a result, blood vessels stay relaxed allowing for an adequate supply of blood and oxygen to the heart that will lower blood pressure.

The recommended adult starting dose of amlodipine is 5 mg taken once daily. Depending on the effectiveness of this medication for your condition, and how well the medication is tolerated, your doctor may suggest a dose between 2.5 mg and 10 mg taken once daily.

For children ages 6 to 17 years, the recommended dose is 2.5 mg to 5 mg once daily.

Amlodipine can be taken with or without food.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones above, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important that this medication be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is less than 12 hours until your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store this medication at room temperature, protect it from light, and keep it out of the reach of children. Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

CRESTOR 40MG BLSPK  (30 TABLETS)

Generic Name: rosuvastatin
Brand Name: Crestor
Drug class: HMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitors, Lipid-Lowering Agents, Statins

WHAT IS THE DOSAGE OF THIS MEDICATION?

Crestor and its generic rosuvastatin is available in the strength of 5 mg, 10 mg, 20 mg, and 40 mg tablets.


WHAT IS THIS MEDICATION USED FOR?

Rosuvastatin belongs to the group of medications known as HMG CoA reductase inhibitors ("statins"). It is used, along with a healthy diet and exercise program, to improve cholesterol levels by decreasing low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol ('bad cholesterol') and triglycerides in the blood, and increasing high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol ('good cholesterol') in the blood. It is also used to treat people who have certain inherited cholesterol disorders.

Rosuvastatin works by blocking the enzyme that helps make cholesterol in the body. People with high blood cholesterol levels have a higher risk of heart diseases such as heart attacks. When cholesterol levels are lowered with a combination of medication, diet, and exercise, the risk of heart disease is lowered. It takes 2 to 4 weeks to see the maximum effect of this medication on cholesterol levels in blood tests.

It can also be used to reduce the risk of heart attacks, stroke, and angioplasty for people who have at least 2 risk factors for cardiovascular disease.

Before starting rosuvastatin, you should be following a cholesterol-lowering diet. If appropriate, a program of weight control and physical exercise should also be implemented.

The recommended dose of rosuvastatin ranges between 5 mg and 40 mg once daily. For most people, the usual recommended starting dose of rosuvastatin is 10 mg once daily. If necessary, the dose may be increased to a maximum of 40 mg daily. People who require the maximum dose of 40 mg per day should consult a specialist.

For children 10 to 17 years of age, who have inherited cholesterol disorders, the recommended starting dose is 5 mg taken once daily. Your doctor may increase this dose to a maximum of 10 mg daily, depending on the effectiveness of the medication and how well it is tolerated.

For people with severely reduced liver function, the maximum daily dose is 20 mg.

For people with severely reduced kidney function, the starting dose should be 5 mg daily and the maximum daily dose is 10 mg.

A starting dose of 5 mg daily is recommended for people of Asian descent (Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, or Asian-Indian origin) and those who have severe kidney problems. This low dose should also be considered for people who do not need aggressive cholesterol-lowering effects and for people who may be at a greater risk of experiencing muscle-related problems.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

Rosuvastatin may be taken in the morning or in the evening, with or without food.

It is very important that this medication be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and carry on with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store this medication at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children. Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
