What is Gopten?
Gopten containing the active ingredient trandolapril is considered an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. It works by relaxing blood vessels, causing them to widen to allow easier blood flow and let the heart pump blood more efficiently. It is used alone or with other drugs to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) which helps prevent strokes, heart attacks and kidney problems. Some patients with heart failure may also use the medication to improve survival after a heart attack.

How is Gopten used?
Gopten is usually taken once or twice daily unless otherwise directed by a doctor. The capsules can be taken with or without food but should be taken with a glass of water. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage as it will depend on the patient's condition and their response to the medication. The capsules should be swallowed whole and not cut, chewed or crushed to prevent too much of the medication from being released at one time. Do not discontinue the medication without contacting a doctor even if you feel well as high blood pressure usually has no visible symptoms. The medication is used to treat hypertension but cannot be used as a cure for the condition.

Adverse effects
Gopten may cause unwanted side effects in patients such as:

  • Dizziness
  • Diarrhea
  • Cough
  • Muscle pain
  • Drowsiness
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia

Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or encounter more severe side effects such as:

Do not take the medication if you are pregnant as it may cause potentially fatal harm to the fetus.

Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.

Gopten is not always suitable for all patients. Always consult your health care provider prior to using this medication if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to conceive, using any other medication (prescription or non-prescription), using any herbal products or supplements, or if you have any allergies or other health problems.

The correct dosage and prescription commonly depend on the patient and the condition being treated. Do not adjust your dosage without the approval of your health care provider. This product is only for use as prescribed and instructed.
