HOW METOLET XL 50 H TABLET WORKS

METOLET XL 50 H TABLET is an antihypertensive medicine. It contains two medicines namely, metoprolol and hydrochlorothiazide. Metoprolol works by blocking the actions of certain chemical messengers (such as adrenaline) in the body that increases heart rate and blood pressure.

Hydrochlorothiazide works by reducing the thickness of the blood by removing excess fluids from the body in the form of urine. It also helps in improving blood supply across all parts of the body. Collectively, these actions reduce the strain on the heart and helps the heart to pump more blood with less pressure.
