Eptus 50 mg is a prescription medicine used to improve the survival of stable patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction and clinical evidence of congestive heart failure after acute myocardial infarction. It also helps in the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure). The medicine is combined with other medicines to control your blood pressure. Eptus contains the active ingredient Eplerenone, which reduces the body's water by increasing the urine flow. This way, it reduces blood pressure and the risk of having a heart attack, stroke, kidney problems, and heart problems in the future. This medicine needs to be taken regularly to be effective, so keep taking it even if you feel well. Do not discontinue treatment without speaking to your doctor.
Eptus 50 should not be used in patients with hypersensitivity to Eplerenone or any of the ingredients of the medicine. You should be careful about using this medicine if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Also, let your doctor know of all the medications you are using, as they may affect how the Eptus work or Eptus may reduce the effectiveness of other medicines.
It should not be given to patients with severe kidney impairment.
