Ikorel Description

If you are experiencing the pain of angina, this could be a warning sign that you are at an increased risk for a heart attack or cardiac arrest. Angina occurs when one or more of your coronary arteries is blocked or narrowed from a buildup of cholesterol, fat, and other substances flowing through your arteries as they are trying to deliver oxygen-rich blood to your heart.

Exercising, stress, extreme temperatures, or while consuming alcohol or puffing on a cigarette can make your heart work harder and if it struggles for a proper blood flow, you may feel a tightness or pain in your chest to warn you. Stop what you are doing and rest to allow your heart to slow down and pump normally. Ikorel is not a cure for angina but it will provide pain relief.

Reduce Symptoms of an Angina Attack with Ikorel

Your doctor may prescribe Ikorel, a potassium channel activator that can help to prevent the pain of angina. Nicorandil, the active ingredient in Ikorel acts on potassium channels found on your muscle cells within the walls of blood vessels. It causes these channels to open, causing the muscle cells to relax which, in turn dilates the blood vessels.

As Ikorel helps widen the arteries that take blood from your heart to the rest of your body and does the same for the veins that return blood to your heart, your heart no longer strains to do its job and your risk of a heart attack or other cardiac event is reduced. Ikorel does not contain any dyes, sucrose, lactose, gluten, or preservatives.

Conditions Treated by Ikorel

Angina is most commonly the result of narrowed or damaged arteries that influence the amount of blood flowing to and from your heart. There are different types of angina and Ikorel is effective for treating stable angina that has not been controlled by other drugs. Stable angina usually follows a predictable pattern which means the pain occurs at about the same point during exercising or performing any activity that makes your heart beat faster, or at times of emotional stress.

As soon as you feel the pain, stop what you are doing and take a few moments to rest or take your dose of Ikorel and the feeling will go away. Angina pain usually only lasts 2 to 3 minutes but it may be wise to keep track of how long the pain lasts and any changes in the pain intensity or length could mean you have developed unstable angina. If you are resting and the pain has not subsided or stopped after 15 minutes, you could be experiencing a heart attack and should seek medical assistance immediately.

Before You Take Ikorel

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding before taking Ikorel to be certain of the safety for your unborn or nursing baby. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC or Rx drugs you take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements. Your doctor can then determine if Ikorel is right for your situation.

Proper Use of Ikorel

Until you know how your body will react to Ikorel, avoid driving, operating machinery, or taking on any task that could result in injury if you are not alert. Do not change your dosage, or stop taking Ikorel without first talking with your doctor. Erectile dysfunction (ED) drugs can cause a serious drop in your blood pressure if taken with Ikorel.
