PROCORALAN 7.5mg | IVABRADINE – 28 tabs
Procoralan in Kenya contains Ivabradine; a selective sinus node If inhibitor used in the treatment of angina pectoris in patients unable to take beta blockers. It is given orally with food in a usual initial dose of 5 mg twice daily, increased after 3 or 4 weeks if necessary to 7.5 mg twice daily. If the heart rate falls persistently below 50 beats/minute or there are symptoms of bradycardia the dose should be titrated downwards, to as low as 2.5 mg twice daily if necessary. Treatment should be stopped if this low rate or symptoms of bradycardia persist. In the elderly (75 years or above), a lower initial dose of 2.5 mg twice daily should be considered, before increasing if necessary.
