DRUG STUDY Name of Drug / Classification Dosage / Route of Administration Adults Initially, 5mg PO daily; dosage may gradually

increased over 1014 days to a maximum dose of 10mg PO daily. Patients with Hepatic impairment; Initially 2.5mg PO daily; dosage may be adjusted over 7-14 days based on clinical assessment Oral Mechanism of Action Amlodipine is in a group of drugs called calcium channel blockers. Amlodipine relaxes (widens) blood vessels and improves blood flow. Amlodipine is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) or chest pain (angina) and other conditions caused by coronary artery disease. Inhibits reabsorption of sodium and chloride in distal renal tubule, increasing excretion of sodium chloride and water by the kidney may decrease peripheral resistance. Indication Nursing Responsibilities

Amlodipine Antiangianal Antihypertensive Calcium Channel blocker (Norvasc)

Angina Pectoris due to coronary artery spasm. Chronic stable angina alone or in combination with other drugs.

Monitor cardiac rhythm regulary during stabilization of dosage and periodically during long-term therapy. Administer drug without regard to meals. Monitor BP, use with caution on patient with history of heart failure.

Indapramide Thiazide-like diuretic

Adults Edema; 2.5mg/day PO as single dose in the morning. May be increased to 5mg/day if no changes in 1 week. Hypertension; 1.25mg/day PO. May be increased up to 2.5mg/day if response is not satisfactory after 4 wk Oral

Edema associated with heart failure. Hypertension, as sole therapy or in combination with other hypertensive

Give with food or milk if GI upset occurs. Give early in the day so increased urination will not disturb sleep. Monitor weight

Simvastatin Adults Antihyperlipidemic Tablets 5, 10, 20, 40, 80 mg; Zocor orally disintegrating tablets 10, 20, 40, 80 mg Initially 20mg PO up to 80mg daily in the evening. Usual range, 5-80 mg/day. Maximum dose, 80mg/day. Adjust at 4-week intervals. Oral

Inhibits HMGCoA reductase enzyme that catalyzes the first step in the cholesterol synthesis pathway, resulting in a decrease in serum cholesterol, serum LDLs and either an increase or no change in serum HDLs

Simvastatin is used together with lifestyle changes (diet, weight-loss, exercise) to reduce the amount of fatty substances such as low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol ('bad cholesterol') and triglycerides in the blood and to increase the amount of highdensity lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol ('good cholesterol') in the blood

Avoid eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice while using this medication unless your doctor instructs you otherwise. Grapefruit can increase the amount of this medication in your bloodstream. If you also take certain other drugs to lower your cholesterol (bile acidbinding resins such as cholestyramine or colestipol), take simvastatin at least 1 hour before or at least 4 hours after taking these medications. These products can react with simvastatin, preventing its full absorption. Administer with food and milk to prevent GI upset. Monitor serum electrolytes, hydration, liver and renal function. Monitor changes. weight

Adults Tablets 20, 40, 80 mg oral solution 10mg 40mg/5mL; injection 10mg/mL Furosemide is used to reduce extra fluid in the body (edema) caused by conditions such as heart failure, liver disease, and kidney disease. This can lessen symptoms such as shortness of breath and swelling in your arms, legs,abdomen. Lasix (furosemide) is indicated in adults and pediatric patients for the treatment of edema associated with congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, and renal disease, including the nephrotic syndrome.
