What is Co-ported and what it is used?
What is Co-ported?
Co-ported a combination of two active ingredients, perindopril and indapamide. Co-ported and antihypertensive drug is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension).
What used Co-ported?
Perindopril belongs to a class of medicines called angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. They work by widening the blood vessels, making it easier to pump blood from the heart through. Indapamide is a diuretic. Diuretics increase the amount of urine excreted by the kidneys. Indapamide, however, differs from other diuretics, as it causes a slight increase in urine output. The active substances lowers blood pressure and they work together to control your blood pressure. Co-ported 8 mg / 2.5 mg is indicated for patients receiving separate tablets of 8 mg perindopril and indapamide 2.5 mg. Instead, these patients can take one tablet Co-ported 8 mg / 2.5 mg, which contains two active substances.
