PRODUCT INTRODUCTION

Nicostar OD 10mg Tablet PR is a medicine used to prevent and treat heart-related chest pain (angina). It is usually prescribed when other heart medicines are either not suitable or have not worked. It reduces the risk of an angina attack by widening blood vessels and improving blood flow to the heart.

Nicostar OD 10mg Tablet PR may be taken with or without food. It should be swallowed whole with water. Take this medicine regularly and at about the same time(s) each day. Your doctor will decide the dose and how often you should take it. This may change from time to time depending on how well it is working. Do not stop taking it without talking to our doctor as sudden withdrawal may cause your chest pain to come back. You can improve the health of your heart by making some lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking, cutting down on alcohol, eating well, exercising regularly, and managing stress.

The most common side effect of this medicine is headache, especially during the first few days of treatment. This usually improves within a week. However,  drinking plenty of fluids and avoiding alcohol may help. Other common side effects include dizziness or weakness, nausea, and flushing (sense of warmth in the face, ears, neck, and trunk). Talk to your doctor if these bother you or do not go away.

Nicostar OD 10mg Tablet PR may not be suitable for some people. Inform your doctor if you have a history of low blood pressure or heart failure. Also let your doctor know about all other medications that you are using as some may affect, or be affected by this medicine. You should not take any medicines for erectile dysfunction with this medicine. Nicostar OD 10mg Tablet PR is not usually recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding.


USES OF NICOSTAR TABLET PR

BENEFITS OF NICOSTAR TABLET PR

In Treatment of Angina (heart-related chest pain)

Nicostar OD 10mg Tablet PR helps in prevention as well as treatment of angina. Angina is a chest pain that is usually caused by the narrowing of the blood vessels which supply your heart. This means your heart does not get enough oxygen. Nicostar OD 10mg Tablet PR relaxes and widens the blood vessels so more blood (and oxygen) gets to your heart. This reduces the pain and discomfort that angina causes thereby improving your ability to exercise and go about your daily life more easily. This medicine needs to be taken regularly to be effective so keep taking it even if you are not having any angina symptoms.
