Indications of Cilocab 10

End-organ protection is one of the indications for cilnidipine in the treatment of hypertension. It’s said to help older people, as well as those with diabetes and albuminuria. Patients with chronic renal disease are increasingly being prescribed cilnidipine. The term “hypertension” refers to the presence of elevated blood pressure. The force of blood pushed by the heart against the blood arteries causes blood pressure to rise. As a result, hypertension occurs when there is too much pressure on the blood vessels, which can damage them.


Pharmaceutical Name of Cilocab 10

ACI Limited



Cilnidipine is a calcium channel blocker that is made up of dihydropyridines. Cilnidipine binds to the dihydropy-ridine binding sites of the L-type voltage-dependent calcium channel, inhibiting Ca2+ influx across the cell membranes of vascular smooth muscle cells, inducing vasodilation. Cilnidipine blocks Ca2+ influx through sympathetic nerve cell membrane N-type voltage-dependent calcium channels. N-type voltage dependent calcium channel inhibition was reported over a comparable range of medication doses as L-type voltage dependent calcium channel inhibition. As a result, norepinephrine release from sympathetic nerve terminals would be inhibited. Cilnidipine is thought to reduce the reflex rise in heart rate that occurs after blood pressure is reduced.


Dosage & Administration

Adults: 5-10 mg once daily after breakfast. Maximum dose: 20 mg once daily.

Pediatric use: The safety of Cilnidipine in pediatric patients has not been established.

Elderly use: Since the elderly may be more susceptible to hypotension, therapy should be initiated with the lowest possible dose (5 mg).


Interactions of Cilocab 10

Quinidine, carbamazepine, phenytoin, rifampicin, cimetidine, and erythromycin are examples of antihypertensive and antipsychotic drugs that cause hypotension.



Individuals with known hypersensitivity to cilnidipine or any of the excipients, as well as patients with cardiogenic shock, recent MI, acute unstable angina, and severe aortic stenosis, should not take it.


Side Effects of Cilocab 10

Dizziness, flushing, headache, hypotension, peripheral oedema, palpitations, GI problems, increased micturition frequency, lethargy, eye pain, and depression are the most prevalent side effects of Cilnidipine.


Pregnancy & Lactation

Cilnidipine should not be given to pregnant women or women who are planning to get pregnant. It’s also best to stay away from Cilnidipine if you’re a breastfeeding mother. If the administration is absolutely necessary, the patient should be told to stop breastfeeding.


Precautions & Warnings

Patients with substantial hepatic impairment, as well as those who have had serious adverse responses to calcium antagonists, should be given cilnidipine with caution. During the withdrawal, the dosage should be gradually reduced while being closely monitored.
