1.

Che cos’è Ivabradina Accord e a che cosa serve

Ivabradina Accord è un medicinale per il cuore utilizzato per il trattamento:

dell’angina pectoris stabile sintomatica (una malattia che causa dolore al torace) in pazienti

adulti la cui frequenza cardiaca è superiore o uguale a 70 battiti al minuto. È utilizzato nei

pazienti adulti che non tollerano o non possono assumere medicinali per il cuore chiamati

beta-bloccanti. È anche utilizzato in associazione con i beta-bloccanti nei pazienti adulti la

cui condizione non è completamente controllata con un beta-bloccante

dell’insufficienza cardiaca cronica nei pazienti adulti la cui frequenza cardiaca è maggiore

o uguale a 75 battiti al minuto. E’ utilizzato in associazione con la terapia convenzionale,

che include il trattamento con un beta-bloccante o nel caso in cui i beta-bloccanti siano

controindicati o non tollerati.

Informazioni sull’angina pectoris stabile (comunemente chiamata “angina”):

L’angina stabile è una malattia cardiaca che si manifesta quando il cuore non riceve abbastanza

ossigeno. Generalmente compare tra i 40 e i 50 anni di età. Il sintomo più comune dell’angina è il

dolore o fastidio al torace. E’ più probabile che l’angina si manifesti quando il cuore batte

rapidamente in situazioni come un’attività fisica, un’emozione, l’esposizione al freddo o dopo

mangiato. Questo aumento della frequenza cardiaca può provocare dolore al torace nelle persone

che soffrono di angina.

Informazioni sull’insufficienza cardiaca cronica:

L’insufficienza cardiaca cronica è una malattia cardiaca che si manifesta quando il cuore non

riesce a pompare abbastanza sangue al resto del corpo. I sintomi più comuni dell’insufficienza

cardiaca sono la mancanza di respiro, l’affaticamento, la stanchezza e il gonfiore alle caviglie.

all'immissione in commercio (o titolare AIC).

Come funziona Ivabradina Accord?

Ivabradina Accord funziona principalmente riducendo la frequenza cardiaca di pochi battiti al

minuto. Ciò riduce il bisogno di ossigeno del cuore in particolare durante quelle situazioni in cui è

più probabile che si abbia un attacco di angina. In questo modo Ivabradina Accord aiuta a

controllare e a diminuire il numero di attacchi di angina.

Inoltre, dato che una frequenza cardiaca elevata influenza negativamente il funzionamento del

cuore e

l’aspettativa di vita dei pazienti affetti da insufficienza cardiaca cronica, l’azione specifica

di riduzione della frequenza cardiaca di ivabradina aiuta a migliorare il funzionamento del cuore e

l’aspettativa di vita in questi pazienti.

prendere questo medicinale.

3.

Come prendere Ivabradina Accord

Prenda questo medicinale seguendo sempre esattamente le istruzioni del medico o del farmacista.

ha dubbi consulti il medico o il farmacista.

Ivabradina Accord deve essere assunto durante i pasti.

Se è in trattamento per l’angina pectoris stabile

La dose iniziale non deve superare una compressa di Ivabradina Accord 5 mg due volte al giorno.

Se presenta ancora i sintomi dell’angina e tollera bene la dose giornaliera di 5 mg due volte al

giorno, la dose può essere aumentata. La dose di mantenimento non deve superare i 7,5 mg due

volte al giorno. Il medico prescriverà la dose più adatta. La dose abituale è una compressa al

mattino e una compressa alla sera.

In alcuni casi (ad es. se è anziano), il medico le potrà

prescrivere metà dose, ad es. mezza compressa da 5 mg di Ivabradina Accord 5 mg (che

corrisponde a 2,5 mg di ivabradina) la mattina e mezza compressa da 5 mg la sera.

Se è in trattamento per l’insufficienza cardiaca cronica

La dose usuale iniziale raccomandata è di una compressa di Ivabradina Accord 5 mg due volte al

giorno, da aumentare se necessario a una compressa di Ivabradina Accord 7,5 mg due volte al

giorno. Il medico deciderà la dose più adatta. La dose abituale è una compressa la mattina e una

compressa la sera. In alcuni casi (ad esempio, se è anziano), il medico potrà prescrivere di

dimezzare la dose, ovvero mezza compressa

da 5 mg di Ivabradina Accord 5 mg (che corrisponde a

2,5 mg di ivabradina) la mattina e mezza compressa da 5 mg la sera.

Se prende più Ivabradina Accord di quanto deve

Una dose elevata di Ivabradina Accord potrebbe farla sentire senza fiato o stanco perché la

frequenza cardiaca è stata rallentata troppo. Se questo dovesse succedere, contatti immediatamente

il medico.

Se dimentica di prendere Ivabradina Accord

Se dimentica di prendere una dose di Ivabradina Accord, prenda la dose successiva all’orario

abituale. Non prenda una dose doppia per compensare la dimenticanza della dose.

Il calendario stampato sul blister che contiene le compresse la aiuterà a ricordare quando ha preso

l’ultima compressa di Ivabradina Accord.

Se interrompe il trattamento con Ivabradina Accord

Poiché il trattamento dell’angina o dell’insufficienza cardiaca cronica è di solito a vita, deve

parlare con il medico prima di interrompere l’assunzione di questo medicinale.

Se ha l’impressione che l’effetto di Ivabradina Accord sia troppo forte o troppo debole, si rivolga

al medico o al farmacista.

Se ha qualsiasi dubbio sull’uso di questo medicinale, si rivolga al medico o al farmacista.
