It can show symptoms like headache, sweating, fast heartbeat, or throbbing sensation.

CORVADIL A TABLET can also be used to treat angina pectoris (chest pain due to imbalance in demand and supply of oxygen in a portion of the heart muscle). Your doctor may take blood samples frequently to check whether CORVADIL A TABLET has had any effect on your blood.

HOW CORVADIL A TABLET WORKS

CORVADIL A TABLET controls blood pressure and relives angina where amlodipine relaxes the blood vessels, so that blood passes through them more easily and effortlessly, and also improves blood supply to the heart muscle, providing more oxygen and thus preventing chest pain; and atenolol causes the heart to beat more slowly and with less force.
