Contain the active ingredient : Ranolazine, which is a type of medicine called an antianginal medicine. It is used to treat angina.

The pain of angina is caused by too little oxygen reaching the heart when the heart rate increases and its workload increases, such as during exercise. This is usually a result of hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis) that supply blood to the heart. This is also known as coronary heart disease. Ranolazine works by improving the blood flow to the heart and therefore oxygen supply to the heart.

The way in which ranolazine works is not fully understood, however, it does work in a slightly different way to other angina medicines.. It is thought to work by reducing the flow of sodium and calcium into the heart muscle cells. This allows the heart muscle to relax, which improves its blood and oxygen supply and helps prevent angina attacks. Ranolazine doesn’t alter heart rate or blood pressure.

Ranolazine is used as a second-line medicine in addition to other angina medicines.

Ranexa tablets are known as ‘prolonged-release’ tablets. They are designed to release the medicine slowly and continuously over several hours, to provide a steady amount of medicine in the blood.

What is it used for?

  • Treatment of chronic stable angina pectoris.
  • It is is used when medicines such as beta-blockers and/or calcium antagonists have not successfully controlled the symptoms of angina, or have caused unacceptable side effects.
