Introduction

Korandil 10 Tablet is a medicine used to prevent and treat heart-related chest pain (angina). It is usually prescribed when other heart medicines are not suitable or have not worked. It reduces the risk of an angina attack by widening blood vessels and improving blood flow to the heart.

Korandil 10 Tablet may be taken with or without food. It should be swallowed whole with water at the same time(s) each day. Your doctor will decide the dose and how often you should take it. This may change from time to time depending on how well it is working. You should take this medicine regularly to get the maximum benefit, even if you feel fine. Doing so will help you prevent any further harm. If you stop taking it, your chest pain may come back. You can improve the health of your heart by making some lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking, cutting down on alcohol, eating well, exercising regularly, and managing stress.

The most common side effect of this medicine is headache, especially during the first few days of treatment. You can reduce this by drinking plenty of fluids and avoiding alcohol, but it usually goes after a week.

This means your heart does not get enough oxygen. Korandil 10 Tablet relaxes and widens the blood vessels so more blood (and oxygen) gets to your heart. This reduces the pain and discomfort that angina causes thereby improving your ability to exercise and go about your daily life more easily. This medicine needs to be taken regularly to be effective so keep taking it even if you are not having any angina symptoms.
