The recommended single dose - 1 tablet, the multiplicity of reception - 3 times a day.
The course of therapy is on average 21-28 days.
During therapy may develop such side effects as dyspeptic symptoms, allergic reactions, lowering blood pressure.
Due to the fact that the taurine, which is part of the drug, has a hypoglycemic effect, when using Kratal in patients with diabetes, it is necessary to constantly monitor the concentration of glucose in the blood, especially at the beginning of treatment. Sometimes, in order to avoid the development of hypoglycemia, it may be necessary to adjust the doses of insulin or oral hypoglycemic drugs.
During the entire period of therapy, patients need to refrain from driving, working with mechanisms, and from performing other potentially dangerous types of work that require high concentration of attention and quick psychomotor reactions.
The use of Kratal is possible simultaneously with vasodilators, prolonged-acting nitrates, beta-blockers, calcium antagonists, diuretics and cardiac glycosides. It should be borne in mind that Kratal enhances the antianginal effects of antihypoxants, calcium antagonists, nitrates, neuroprotectors, beta-blockers.
Kratal increases the sensitivity of the myocardium to the effects of cardiac glycosides and blockers of slow calcium channels, which may require correction of their doses.
