Inspra tablets contain the generic medicinal ingredient eplerenone, which is a type of drug called an aldosterone antagonist. Inspra is prescribed to reduce high blood pressure. Inspra is also used to improve survival in patients with heart failure.
Doctors prescribe Inspra to patients with mild and moderate hypertension in order to lower blood pressure. Doctors also prescribe Inspra to treat heart failure in patients who have recently had a heart attack, which reduces the risk of hospitalization and death due to heart failure.
Inspra works by blocking the action of a hormone in the body called aldosterone, which is involved in the control of blood pressure and heart function. Aldosterone is associated with the worsening of heart failure. By blocking the action of aldosterone, Inspra reduces the symptoms of heart failure, like breathing difficulties and fatigue.
For heart failure patients who have normal or near normal kidney function, the usual starting dose is one 25mg tablet taken orally once daily, increasing to one 50mg tablet once daily in about four weeks, as instructed by your doctor. For hypertension, the usual dose is 50mg tablet taken orally once daily. The maximum daily dose for heart failure is 50mg and for hypertension, it is 100mg.
These may not be all the side effects of Inspra 25mg.
Do not use Inspra if you have high levels of potassium in your blood, severe liver impairment or severe kidney impairment. You should not use this medication if you are taking certain other drugs, which affect the elimination of Inspra.
Before using this medication, tell your doctor if you are taking lithium (usually given as a mood stabilizing medication) and potassium supplements or salt substitutes containing potassium. Let your doctor know if you have diabetes, kidney or liver disease.
Always keep medicine well out of sight and reach of children. Store at controlled room temperature (15°C to 30°C).
Heart failure (HF) is a condition where the heart is no longer working as well as it should because it has been damaged or weakened. HF occurs when the pumping action of your heart is not strong enough to move blood with oxygen and nutrients to the body's cells, especially during increased activity. Symptoms include shortness of breath, coughing or wheezing, sudden weight gain from fluid retention, swelling in your legs and ankles, coughing up pink foamy mucous, rapid or irregular heartbeat. HF can be ongoing (chronic) or your condition may start suddenly (acute). Chronic heart failure develops slowly and may require long-term treatment. In acute heart failure, symptoms occur quickly due to an event like a heart attack. Congestive heart failure refers to blood backing up into the liver, abdomen, lower extremities and lungs. However, not all heart failure is congestive. You might have shortness of breath or weakness due to heart failure and not have any fluid building up. Doctors usually treat heart failure with a combination of medications like aldosterone antagonists, beta blockers and diuretics.
