About the drug
The main active ingredient contained in Coversyl is Perindopril, which is an ACE inhibitor lasting for long durations. It is used to treat high heart failure, blood pressure, or stable coronary artery disease. It enables smooth flow of blood by preventing the production of certain natural chemicals that cause tightening of the blood vessels.
Uses of the drug
Perindopril belongs to a category of drugs called angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, or ACE inhibitors. It is used for a number of different purposes. This drug is prescribed for the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension), heart failure, or to protect your blood vessels and heart from damage after a heart attack or after following certain procedures.
Working of the drug
The active constituent present in this drug is Perindopril which is an ACE inhibitor that prevents your body from creating a hormone known as angiotensin II.
Perindopril does this by blocking or inhibiting a chemical called angiotensin-converting enzyme. This cause widening of your blood vessels and helps in reducing the amount of water returned back into your blood by your kidneys.
This drug action helps in lowering of the blood pressure in people with hypertension or blood pressure which is higher than normal. People with high blood pressure do not feel unwell most of the times and if they don’t seek treatment at the right time, high blood pressure can damage their heart and blood vessels, leading to a heart stroke or attack.
