Stadovas 10 Tab
Rx

Amlodipine exerts antihypertensive action by a direct vasodilating effect on the smooth muscles surrounding the peripheral arterial blood vessels, with less effect on the cardiac muscle calcium channels. Amlodipine therefore does not worsen atrioventricular (AV)-conduction in heart, and amlodipine does not give any negative inotropic effect.

  • Children with hypertension from 6 – 17 years of age: The starting dose is 2.5 mg once daily (using other suitable preparation), up-titrated to 5 mg once daily if blood pressure goal is not achieved after 4 weeks.
