Q. Why is Cistaz considered harmful for heart failure patients?

Since Cistaz widens blood vessels, it generally decreases blood pressure. Therefore, if you are taking medicines which lower blood pressure, you should be careful.

Track your blood pressure regularly, and consult your doctor if dose adjustment is required. Cistaz has also been reported to increase blood pressure and the reason for which is not known.
