NORTIVAN NEO 160 mg. 28 tablets

What is NORTIVAN NEO and what it is used for
NORTIVAN NEO belongs to a group of medicines called angiotensin II receptor blockers and is used to lower high blood pressure. Angiotensin II is a blood vessel constrictor that is found in the body and can cause high blood pressure. Nortivan Neo works by blocking angiotensin II. This leads to blood vessel enlargement and lower blood pressure.

NORTIVAN NEO 40 mg film-coated tablets can be used in three different diseases:
for the treatment of high blood pressure in children and adolescents aged 6 to 18 years. High arterial pressure increases the load on the heart and arteries. If not treated, it can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart and kidneys and cause stroke, heart failure or kidney failure. High blood pressure increases the risk of heart attacks. Lowering your blood pressure to normal reduces the risk of developing these abnormalities;
for the treatment of adult patients following a recent heart attack (myocardial infarction). "Fresh" in this case means between 12 hours and 10 days;
for the treatment of symptomatic heart failure in adult patients. Nortivan Neo is used when it is not possible to use a group of medicines called angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors (medicines to treat heart failure) or it can be used in addition to ACE inhibitors when it is not possible to other medicines are used to treat heart failure. Symptoms of heart failure include shortness of breath and swelling of the feet and feet due to fluid build-up. This occurs when the heart muscle can not pump the blood enough to supply the whole body with the necessary blood.
