What is Aldomet?

Aldomet (Methyldopa) is a medication used to treat high blood pressure, also known as hypertension. It works by relaxing blood vessels, which helps to lower blood pressure and reduce the workload on the heart.

Aldomet is classified as a centrally acting alpha-2 adrenergic agonist. It is believed to work by reducing the activity of the sympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for regulating the body's response to stress. [1] Aldomet is often prescribed to people with high blood pressure who have not responded to other medications. Order Aldomet from an online Canadian pharmacy to save on your prescription.

The generic name for Aldomet is Methyldopa. It is available in the form of tablets in strengths of 125 mg, 250 mg, and 500 mg. Generic Methyldopa is less expensive than brand-name Aldomet, but both versions use the same active ingredient and offer the same benefits.

Methyldopa is converted into an active form (alpha-methylnorepinephrine) in the body. This active form is then able to work on the alpha-2 receptors in the brain, which helps to lower blood pressure.

Aldomet Dosage

The dosage of Aldomet may vary depending on your blood pressure and medical condition. The recommended starting dose is usually 250 mg twice a day, and the maximum recommended dose is 3 grams per day. Studies that attest to Aldomet's effectiveness have used dosages between 500-2250 mg daily. [2] The tablets should be taken with water, with or without food.

It is important to take Aldomet as prescribed by your doctor. Do not exceed the recommended dose. Your doctor may adjust your dosage based on your response to the medication and any side effects you may experience.

If you miss a dose of Aldomet, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.

Aldomet Side Effects

Like all medications, Aldomet can cause side effects. Common side effects of Aldomet include dizziness, drowsiness, headache, fatigue, dry mouth, constipation, and diarrhea. These side effects are usually mild and go away on their own after a few days or weeks.

Other potential side effects of Aldomet include nausea, vomiting, muscle pain, and changes in liver function tests. In rare cases, Aldomet may cause a serious allergic reaction, which can lead to difficulty breathing, swelling of the face, lips, tongue or throat, or hives. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek emergency medical attention.

Aldomet may also cause a decrease in white blood cells, which can increase the risk of infection. Symptoms of an infection may include fever, sore throat, or flu-like symptoms. If you experience any unusual symptoms while taking Aldomet, contact your doctor immediately.

It is important to note that not all people who take Aldomet will experience side effects. Your doctor will monitor you for any potential side effects and adjust your medication as needed.
