USES OF BETALOC 50MG TABLET

Treats:

  • Treats high blood pressure
  • Treats angina pectoris (chest pain)
  • Treats heart failure
  • Treats arrhythmias or palpitations
  • prevents heart attack and migraine

HOW BETALOC 50MG TABLET WORKS

In hypertension, BETALOC 50MG TABLET works by blocking the effect of adrenaline on the heart and decreasing cardiac output, also reducing the outflow of sympathetic neurons, and suppressing renin activity (normally responsible for the increase in blood pressure). Together, these actions lower blood pressure effectively.

In angina pectoris, BETALOC 50MG TABLET works by blocking adrenaline effects on the heart and decreases the heart rate, blood pressure, and extent of heart contraction. It also reduces the oxygen requirements of the heart, providing relief from angina.

In heart failure, BETALOC 50MG TABLET slows down the heart rate and makes it easier for the heart to pump blood around the body.
