Benazepril hydrochloride 2.5 mg

Side Effects

Side effects of Fortekor Palatable Tablets 2.5 mg (28 tablets)

In double-blind clinical trials in dogs with heart failure, FORTEKOR was well tolerated with an incidence of adverse effects statistically lower than observed in placebo treated dogs. A small number of dogs may exhibit transient signs of fatigue or dizziness.
In cats with chronic renal insufficiency, FORTEKOR may increase plasma creatinine concentrations at the start of therapy. This effect is related to the therapeutic effect of the product in reducing blood pressure, and therefore is not necessarily a reason to stop therapy in the absence of other signs. As is routine in cases of chronic renal insufficiency, it is recommended to monitor plasma creatinine during therapy.
FORTEKOR reduced erythrocyte counts in normal cats at high doses, but this effect was not observed at the recommended dose during clinical trials in cats with chronic renal insufficiency. As is routine in cases of chronic renal insufficiency, it is recommended to monitor erythrocyte counts during therapy.
FORTEKOR may increase food consumption and body weight in cats. Emesis, anorexia and lethargy have been reported very rarely in this species.
