Tarka is a brand name medication containing two medicinal ingredients used to lower high blood pressure.
Tarka contains two generic active ingredients, which work differently to control hypertension. Trandolapril belongs to a class of drugs called ACE inhibitors and verapamil is a calcium channel blocker. Doctors prescribe Tarka when one type of drug is not enough to control high blood pressure and it is more convenient to take one tablet instead of two.
Tarka works by changing the amount of calcium getting into the muscle cells of your heart and blood vessels, which decreases the strength and speed of the heart beats. Tarka also works by relaxing and widening the blood vessels. The overall effect is a reduction in blood pressure.
Take Tarka orally once daily at the same time each day. Take Tarka with food to help it work better.
These may not be all the side effects of Tarka 2mg/240mg.
Do not take Tarka if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. You should not take Tarka if you are breastfeeding since this hormone can pass into breast milk and harm a nursing baby. Do not take Tarka if you have diabetes or kidney disease and are already taking a blood pressure medicine that contains aliskiren or an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB). If you have a slow heart beat, liver cirrhosis or are on dialysis, do not take Tarka.
Before taking this medication, let your doctor know if you are dehydrated, taking a salt substitute, are on a low-salt diet, have lupus or scleroderma.
Keep Tarka and all other medicines out of reach and sight of children. Tarka sustained-release tablets should be stored at 15° to 25°C, protected from light and moisture. Do not take your tablets after the expiry date shown on the label. It is important to keep Tarka tablets in the original package.
Blood pressure is measured using two values. The higher value represents the highest pressure in the arteries, which is reached when the heart contracts (during systole). The lower value means the lowest pressure in the arteries, which is reached just before the heart begins to contract again (during diastole). Hypertension is defined as a systolic pressure at rest that averages 140 mm Hg or more, a diastolic pressure at rest that averages 90 mm Hg or more, or both. Medications can reduce blood pressure by making the heart pump less forcefully or rapidly, widening arterioles and veins or removing fluid from the bloodstream. Severe or long-standing high blood pressure that is untreated can cause damage to the heart, kidney, brain and eyes. Symptoms may include headache, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, and restlessness.
