What is Coversyl Arginine?

Coversyl Arginine is a medication used to treat high blood pressure and can also be used by patients who suffer from heart failure or stable coronary artery disease. When prescribed these tablets, they are taken on a daily basis to keep blood pumping through the body in the healthiest possible manner.

How does Coversyl Arginine work?

This medicine belongs to a group called Angiotensin Converting Enzyme inhibitors, or ACE inhibitors for short. Treatments like these support the heart by widening the blood vessels in the body, making it easier for blood to be pumped through them.

A medicine like Coversyl Arginine is usually taken in addition to some lifestyle changes (e.g. adjusting diet, exercising more) in order to manage conditions which can obstruct blood flow and cause serious issues like a stroke, heart attack or blood clots.

How do I take Coversyl Arginine?

Coversyl Arginine tablets are available in a few different strengths. It is preferable to take the tablets with a glass of water and around the same each day - during the morning and before a meal.

When treating high blood pressure, the usual starting and maintenance dose is 5mg once daily. The dosage may be increased to 10mg once a day after one month of treatment. This is the maximum recommended dosage for treating high blood pressure. If you are 65 or older, the starting dose is typically 2.5mg once a day. The daily dosage could go up to 5mg or 10mg if necessary.

When treating heart failure, the usual starting dose is set at 2.5mg once daily. After two weeks, the dose could be increased to the maximum recommended which is 5mg once a day.

If you’re treating stable coronary artery disease, then the typical starting dose is 5mg once daily. After two weeks of treatment, the dose can go up to 10mg once daily, which is the maximum recommended. For patients 65 and older, the starting dose is 2.5mg once a day, which can go up to 5mg once a day after a week.

What are the side effects of Coversyl Arginine?

Not all patients who take Coversyl Arginine will experience side effects, but they are possible and some are more common than others. The most commonly reported side effects include the following:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Vertigo
  • Pins and needles
  • Vision disturbances
  • Tinnitus
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Allergic reactions
  • Muscle cramps
  • Feeling of weakness

Other side effects are possible and some of them can be very serious, but they are also a rarity. You should speak to your doctor or pharmacist if you experience any side effects that are particularly unsettling or last a usually long time. Stop taking this medication and seek medical help immediately if you have any of these particular side effects:

  • Swelling of the face, lips, mouth, tongue or throat and/or difficulty in breathing. These are signs of an allergic reaction
  • Low blood pressure which causes severe dizziness or fainting
  • Fast or irregular heart beat or chest pain
  • Weakness of the arms or legs or problems with speech
  • Sudden wheeziness or shortness of breath
  • Inflamed pancreas which could cause severe abdominal and back pain
  • Yellowing of the skin or eyes (jaundice)
  • Skin rash, starting with red itchy patches on your face, arms or legs

Can I take Coversyl Arginine?

There are certain circumstances related to your health that may mean you should avoid taking Coversyl Arginine. Before you start treatment with these tablets, check that none of these factors apply to you:

  • You have experienced wheezing, swelling or severe skin rashes as a result of taking other ACE inhibitor treatments
  • You’re more than 3 months pregnant. It’s usually recommended not to take this medicine if you are in earlier months of pregnancy or currently breast-feeding
  • You have diabetes or impaired kidney function and the condition is being treated with a blood pressure lowering medicine containing aliskiren
  • You are having dialysis or any other type of blood filtration
  • You have kidney problems that restrict the blood supply to these organs
  • You are taking sacubitril/valsartan to treat heart failure
  • You are below the age of 18

Coversyl Arginine can be affected by other medicines, so let your doctor or pharmacist know about any other treatments you’re currently taking before starting this one. In particular, it’s important to mention any of these if you are using them:

  • Other medicines for treating high blood pressure such as angiotensin II receptor blockers and diuretics
  • Potassium supplements, potassium-containing salt substitutes or potassium-sparing drugs
  • Lithium for treating mania or depression
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (such as ibuprofen) or high dose aspirin
  • Medicines for treating diabetes (such as metformin or insulin)
  • Baclofen for treating muscle stiffness caused by a disease such as multiple sclerosis
  • Medicines for treating mental disorders including depression, anxiety and schizophrenia
  • Immunosuppressants for treating auto-immune disorders
  • Trimethoprim for treating infections
  • Estramustine (used in cancer therapy)
  • Medicines used to treat diarrhoea
  • Allopurinol for treating gout
  • Procainamide for treating an irregular heartbeat
  • Vasodilators including nitrates which make the blood vessels wider
  • Gold salts to treat rheumatoid arthritis
  • Medicines that treat low blood pressure, shock or asthma (such as ephedrine or adrenaline)

What if I take too much Coversyl Arginine?

If you accidentally take a stronger dose of this medicine than you were meant to, you should contact your doctor or nearest hospital emergency department immediately. You may experience symptoms related to low blood pressure which will make you feel dizzy or faint.

What if I forget to take Coversyl Arginine?

If you forget to take a dose of this medication, then it’s usually best to just skip the dose and take the next one at the usual time. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missing one.
