About Coversyl Plus

What Coversyl Plus is used for

COVERSYL PLUS LD is a combination of two active ingredients, perindopril and indapamide. Your doctor has prescribed COVERSYL PLUS LD to treat your mild to moderate hypertension. Hypertension is the medical term for high blood pressure.

What Coversyl Plus does

Perindopril belongs to a class of medicines called ACE inhibitors. These work by widening the blood vessels, which makes it easier for your heart to pump blood through them. Indapamide is a diuretic. Diuretics increase the amount of urine produced by the kidneys. However, indapamide is different from other diuretics, as it only causes a slight increase in the amount of urine produced. Each of the active ingredients reduces blood pressure and they work together to control your blood pressure.

Blood pressure is the force pushing against the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps out the blood when it flows through the blood vessels. This pressure helps get your blood all around the body. Your blood pressure may be different at different times of the day, depending on how busy or worried you are. You have high blood pressure when your blood pressure stays higher than is needed, even when you are calm or relaxed.

There are usually no symptoms of high blood pressure. When blood pressure is high, damage can occur to the heart and blood vessels. The only way of knowing that you have high blood pressure is to have your blood pressure checked on a regular basis.
