CTD 12.5mg Tablet
CTD 12.5mg Tablet 15’s belongs to a group of medicines known as diuretics (water pills which increase the production of urine) primarily used to treat high blood pressure, heart failure, and oedema (a build-up of fluid in the body).
Hypertension or high blood pressure is a lifelong or chronic condition in which the force exerted by the blood against the blood vessel (arteries wall) increases. Higher this blood pressure, harder the heart has to pump. As a result, it leads to heart diseases, irregular heartbeat, and other complications. Oedema may occur in case of high blood pressure where fluids of the body get trapped in the tissues of the hands, arms, feet, ankles, and legs leading to its swelling.
CTD 12.5mg Tablet 15’s works by increasing the amount of urine passed out from the kidneys. It effectively reduces excess fluid levels in the body and treats oedema (swelling) associated with heart, liver, kidney, or lung disease. This, in turn, reduces the workload on the heart and makes the heart more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body. So, it helps to lower high blood pressure, reducing the chances of heart attack or stroke.
