Reviews

I was discharged "Curantil" during the first pregnancy, when they found multiple lacunae on the placenta (these are parts of the organ in which there is no blood supply). She was very afraid of this diagnosis, because she knew that it could negatively affect the development of her son. Saw "Curantil" together with other drugs (which I do not remember exactly) for several weeks. It is very important to follow the instructions and recommendations of the doctor, because it is impossible to take this drug for longer than the prescribed period due to the risk of complications. Everything went well with us: I gave birth to a healthy son in time. I think that Curantil played a significant role here. Maria Golubeva, 25 years old, Kursk

His gynecologist also wrote out “Curantil when she was six months pregnant. Increased pressure began to bother, so they prescribed antihypertensive drugs with this medicine. We, of course, were surprised, because the means according to the instructions was not at all from this, but, having read more carefully, we saw. That pills have a pronounced hypotensive effect. In any case, we were able to normalize the pressure and avoid serious consequences, so I think that “Curantil” must be drunk if it is prescribed by a competent doctor. By the way, my wife had no side effects, which all future mothers are so afraid of. Anton Zubov, 27 years old, Krasnoyarsk

I was prescribed "Curantil" for the prevention of thromboembolism after heart surgery. The drug is good and effective, but mindlessly take it can not, because there is a large list of contraindications. Tolerated means well. It is, of course, a little expensive, but the quality and performance justify the money spent on it. Anastasia Dmitrievna, 34 years old, Lviv
