Cardace general information

What is Cardace used for?

Cardace tablets 2.5mg (also known as Altace) are used to treat mild to moderate essential hypertension, which is high blood pressure when at rest, by lowering blood pressure to normal resting levels. This reduces risk of stroke, heart attack and end organ damage such as kidney disease. Cardace 2.5 is also used to treat congestive heart failure, by helping weakened heart muscles pump more efficiently and reducing feelings of breathlessness on exertion. Cardace tablets 2.5mg are also used to reduce risk of cardiovascular disease in patients over 55 years who have a history of heart attack, coronary artery disease, stroke or peripheral vascular disease, or reduce need for surgery to replace damaged blood vessels; also in people with diabetes who also have other risk factors like high cholesterol or high blood pressure or who smoke. Cardace 2.5 can be used on its own or with a diuretic, which helps get rid of excess water that is retained in body tissues and can cause swelling (oedema).

How does Cardace work?

Cardace tablets 2.5mg (also known as Altace) contain ramipril, which is a prodrug that is converted in the liver to its active form ramiprilat, a potent and long acting Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. Ramipril in Cardace 2.5 prevents the formation of angiotensin II, a hormone that has several actions involved in regulating blood pressure, which is the force needed to pump blood around the body. Angiotensin II causes salt and water retention by the kidneys, and causes blood vessels to constrict (narrow); this increases blood volume while at the same time reducing blood vessel volume, which increases blood pressure. Ramipril in Cardace 2.5 inhibits the conversion of angiotensin II from angiotensin I, which allows blood vessels to relax and widen, reducing the force needed by the heart to pump blood around the body, reducing its workload and lowering blood pressure.

What does Cardace contain?

Cardace tablets 2.5mg contain the active ingredient ramipril an Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, which widens blood vessels and lowers blood pressure.
