Coversyl 4 mg effectively treats hypertension (high blood pressure), coronary artery disease (CAD), and heart failure. It contains the active ingredient perindopril, categorized under the medications known as angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors.
High blood pressure - Coversyl helps to lower blood pressure. Everyone has blood pressure, which helps get your blood all around the body. Your blood pressure may fluctuate depending on how busy or tense you are. You have high blood pressure when your blood pressure remains higher than needed, even when relaxed. People with high blood pressure do not have symptoms. The only way to know you have it is to check your blood pressure regularly. If left untreated, it may cause life-threatening problems. You may feel fine, but eventually, it can cause stroke, heart disorder, and kidney failure.
Heart failure - Coversyl helps to treat heart failure. In heart failure, the heart muscle can't pump blood strongly enough to supply all the blood required throughout the body. The heart problem begins with no symptoms, but as the condition progresses, you may feel breathless or tired easily after walking or other light physical activity. In severe heart failure, symptoms, including breathlessness, may appear even at rest.
Coronary artery disease - Also known as CAD, Coronary artery disease is the narrowing of the blood vessels that carry blood to the heart. Coversyl has been shown to reduce the risk of a heart attack.
Coversyl is contraindicated in patients known to be hypersensitive to this medicine or any other ACE inhibitor.

– Diabetes or renal insufficiency and taking aliskiren to manage high blood pressure.
– Undergoing dialysis
– With Previous ACE inhibitor treatment, you have experienced symptoms such as intense itching, wheezing, lips, tongue, face, or throat swelling, or severe skin rashes.
Do not take Perindopril if you take a combined medicine called valsartan/sacubitril, which is used to treat heart failure as the risk of angioedema (rapid swelling under the skin) increases.
Do not take this medicine if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. Avoid taking it if you are breastfeeding.
