Condyline review





Condyline is a selective adrenergic receptor blocker belonging to a class of medicaments, which work directly on the heart and blood circulation. It is mainly used to treat cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure (high blood pressure), coronary heart disease, arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat), ischemic heart disease (restricted blood supply to the heart), and heart attack (necrosis of the heart muscle leading to heart attack).

Condyline works by blocking the heart's beta-adrenergic receptors, found in the body's sympathetic nervous system. This reduces the heart rate, preventing an abnormal rapid heartbeat, while relaxing the blood vessels so the heart does not need to pump too hard.

This medication is used to treat patients with congestive heart failure by reducing the heart muscle's oxygen consumption. It decreases the heart's contraction force while lowering blood pressure, thereby lessens the heart's need for oxygen. When the heart's need for oxygen exceeds the amount supplied to it, heart pain or angina occurs. This makes Condyline ideal for the treatment of angina.

This medication can also be used to treat dysautonomia (disorder of the autonomic nervous system), anxiety, and hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid gland).

Prior to taking Condyline, patients should inform their doctor if they are allergic to the medication or to any other medicaments. The doctor should be made aware if the patient is currently taking any prescription or over-the-counter medicaments, including vitamin, mineral or herbal supplements. The doctor will need to alter the Condyline dose for patients taking calcium channel blockers like diltiazem, verapamil, clonidine, or guanethidine. Patients taking this medication should not be taking medicaments indicated for irregular heartbeat like disopyramide, other beta blockers like reserpine, or other contraindicated medicaments such as rifampin and digoxin. In these cases close monitoring during Condyline therapy is needed.

Condyline is not recommended and is contraindicated for patients with asthma or other bronchial diseases; a slow heart rate; a history of heart failure; any existing liver, kidney or heart disease; diabetes; allergies; circulation disorders, or hyperthyroidism.

The FDA classified Condyline in pregnancy category C, which means it is not known whether the medication can harm an unborn child. Female patients need to inform their doctor if they are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or if they do become pregnant during the course of treatment. Patients that are breastfeeding an infant will need to consult with their doctor prior to taking this medication since Condyline can be secreted into breastmilk and may harm a nursing infant.

Patients need to disclose their existing Condyline therapy prior to any type of surgery, including dental procedures. Condyline treatment will have to be temporarily ceased, under medical supervision, before undergoing a surgical procedure.

Condyline can cause drowsiness and reduce alertness, so patients are advised not to drive a vehicle or operate any kind of machinery while on this medication. Patients should avoid alcohol consumption while taking Condyline since drinking alcoholic beverages may also exacerbate the effect of dizziness that Condyline may cause.

Condyline causes some side effects that are mild and easily tolerated by most patients. In rare instances, it may result in headaches, nausea, abdominal cramping, diarrhea, impotence, slow heart rate, unexplained weight gain, low blood pressure, numbness and tingling, sore throat, clamminess and swelling of the hands and feet, fainting, and wheezing or shortness of breath. If these symptoms continue, patients are advised to consult their doctor immediately.

Diabetics should inform their doctor if they are taking Condyline, as the medication can alter the results of blood tests for diabetes, particularly that for hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar.

Distributed under the brand names Concor, Zebeta, Concore and Monocor, it is available by prescription in 5mg and 10mg pink, heart-shaped, film-coated pills. Condyline should be taken orally according to the doctor's directions, once daily with water, at the same time each day. The doctor may also prescribe a low-salt diet to complement treatment.

Because Condyline may only form part of a comprehensive treatment program for high blood pressure, it cannot get rid of the disease altogether. Patients are encouraged to stick to a healthy diet, regular exercise and their prescribed medication to control high blood pressure.

Condyline is considered a preventive maintenance medication that a patient may need to take for the rest of their lives, even in the absence of hypertensive symptoms. Suddenly stopping Condyline therapy without prior medical advice may cause the patient's condition to worsen.
