What GUTRON tablets are used for?
GUTRON is used to treat the symptoms of idiopathic orthostatic hypotension found in Bradbury-Eggleston or Shy-Drager syndromes. Idiopathic orthostatic hypotension is a fall in blood pressure that occurs upon rising abruptly to an upright position although it may also occur following a period of prolonged standing.
The body's nervous system is responsible for this type of hypotension. GUTRON is administered in those cases where the response to other therapy is not adequate.
GUTRON is also used where hypotension is a consequence of other medical disorders such as diabetes or Parkinson's disease.
Hypotension is low blood pressure . It is a measure of the blood pressing on the artery walls. This pressure helps move your blood around your body. You have hypotension when your blood pressure stays lower than normal. GUTRON may increase your blood pressure by constricting the walls of your blood vessels.
Your doctor may have prescribed GUTRON tablets for another reason.
