Medical Description

Efnocar 40 Tablet contains Efonidipine, an anti-hypertensive medicine. It is used for the treatment of high blood pressure. It can also be used for the treatment of angina, a type of chest pain caused by the reduced blood supply to the heart. It works by widening the blood vessel by relaxing the wall of blood vessels. Due to the widening of blood vessels, blood passes through them more easily which further decreases blood pressure. It also works by excretion of sodium through urine. It also relieves chest pain by improving blood supply to the heart muscle. Heart muscle receives more oxygen due to improvement in the blood supply. Headache, palpitation (feeling of heartbeat), flushing of the face, hot flushes are common side effects of this medicine. If side effects do not go away on their own or your condition doesn’t improve over time then inform your doctor.
