What is Tenex used for?
Tenex is prescsribed to treat high blood pressure, which is also known as hypertension. If someone has high blood pressure, it means that their heart is working harder than it should to pump blood around the body. If this continues for a long time, the heart and arteries may not function properly. This could result in damaged blood vessels of the brain, heart, and kidneys which could result in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure.
How does Tenex work?
Tenex is an oral medication that contains the active ingredient Guanfacine. The Guanfacine dosage acts in the brain; it reduces nerve impulses in your heart and blood vessels. When taken as directed, this medication relaxes the blood vessels, which lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow.
Before taking Tenex, read all the instructions and paper work that given to you by your pharmacist. Take your Tenex dosage orally once a day. Make sure you take it at the same time each day to create a routine for yourself and to ensure an even spread of the Guanfacine dosage in your system. This medication should be taken on a regular basis to have optimal results. The Tenex dosage that you take will depend on your condition and your age. Take this drug exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not change or increase your dose. You should continue taking this medication even if you feel well.
Tenex or the generic may contain medical and non medical ingredients that could cause an allergic reaction. Consult with your doctor about any known allergies before taking Tenex. Speak with your doctor about any known medical conditions especially those relating to heart problems, coronary artery disease, heart rhythm disorder, heart attack or stroke, high or low blood pressure, liver disease, or kidney disease. Tell your doctor about any current medications or supplementation to avoid interactions or unwanted side effects of Guanfacine.
