Benidipine is used in the treatment of Hypertension (high blood pressure) and Angina (heart-related chest pain).
Benidipine is a calcium channel blocker. It regulates the blood pressure by relaxing the blood vessels and reducing the pressure on them, thereby making it easier for the heart to pump more blood throughout the body. In this way, it normalizes the blood pressure in patients with high blood pressure. This enhanced blood flow also improves the oxygen flow in the body, thereby, preventing any heart-related chest pain (angina).
SIDE EFFECTS :
- Ankle swelling
- Flushing (sense of warmth in the face, ears, neck and trunk)
- Edema (swelling)
- Abdominal pain.
