Carduo contains following Salts:-
Amlodipine - Drug Information
Typical usage: :Mild to moderate hypertension. Angina pectoris. Prinzmetals angina.
Probable Side Effects: :Headache, peripheral oedema, fatigue, somnolence, nausea, abdominal pain, flushing, dyspepsia, palpitations, dizziness. Rarely pruritus, rash, dyspnoea, asthenia, muscle cramps. Potentially Fatal: Hypotension, bradycardia, conductive system delay and CCF.
Drug Interaction: Increased metabolism with rifampin. Reduced hypotensive effect with calcium. Potentiates effects of thiazide diuretics and ACE inhibitors. Avoid combination with ?-blockers in patients with markedly impaired left ventricular function. May increase serum levels of CYP1A2 substrates e.g. aminophylline, fluvoxamine, ropinirole. CYP3A4 inhibitors (e.g. clarithromycin, doxycycline, isoniazid, nicardipine) may increase the effects of amlodipine. Additive BP-lowering effects when used with sildenafil, tadalafil or vardenafil.
Mechanism of Action: Amlodipine relaxes peripheral and coronary vascular smooth muscle. It produces coronary vasodilation by inhibiting the entry of Ca ions into the voltage-sensitive channels of the vascular smooth muscle and myocardium during depolarisation. It also increases myocardial O2 delivery in patients with vasospastic angina.
Pregnancy Impact: Animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks.
Impact During Lactation: There are no controlled studies in breastfeeding women, however the risk of untoward effects to a breastfed infant is possible; or, controlled studies show only minimal non-threatening adverse effects. Drugs should be given only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the infant.
Atorvastatin - Drug Information
Typical usage: :Familial hypercholesterolaemia, homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, hypercholesterolaemia, hyperlipoproteinaemia, hypertriglyceridaemia.
Probable Side Effects: :Flatulence, weakness, headache, diarrhea, fever, myalgia, constipation, insomnia, abdominal pain, skin rashes, blurred vision, pharyngitis, dyspepsia, malaise, asthenia, arthralgia, elevation of liver enzymes, myopathy, backache, increased intracranial pressure, GI disturbance, sinusitis.
Drug Interaction: Atorvastatin is known to interact with other drugs like aliskiren, amprenavir, cimetidine (HCl), colestipol (HCl), cyclosporin A, digoxin, erythromycin, mibefradil (Di HCl), nicotinic acid, repaglinide, warfarin (Na). Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required.
Mechanism of Action: Atorvastatin selectively and competitively inhibits the hepatic enzyme HMG-CoA reductase. As HMG-CoA reductase is responsible for converting HMG-CoA to mevalonate in the cholesterol biosynthesis pathway, this results in a subsequent decrease in hepatic cholesterol levels.
Pregnancy Impact: Studies in animals or humans have demonstrated fetal abnormalities and/or there is positive evidence of human fetal risk based on adverse reaction data from investigational or marketing experience, and the risks involved in use of the drug in pregnant women clearly outweigh potential benefits.
Impact During Lactation: Studies in breastfeeding mothers have demonstrated that there is significant and documented risk to the infant based on human experience, or it is a medication that has a high risk of causing significant damage to an infant. The risk of using the drug in breastfeeding women clearly outweighs any possible benefit from breastfeeding. The drug is contraindicated in women who are breastfeeding an infant.
