USES OF METOZEST R 25/2.5 TABLET

It is used to:

HOW METOZEST R 25/2.5 TABLET WORKS

METOZEST R 25/2.5 TABLET contains two medicines namely metoprolol and ramipril. Metoprolol is a beta-blocker. It blocks the effects of certain chemicals in the body (such as adrenaline) that increases heart rate and blood pressure.

Ramipril is an ACE inhibitor. It blocks the effects of certain enzymes in the body (such as angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE)) that causes narrowing of blood vessels and increase in blood pressure.

Collectively, blocking the actions of adrenaline and ACE reduces the strain on the heart and relaxes the blood vessels supplying the heart and the kidneys, which improves blood flow and oxygen supply to them and reduces blood pressure and kidney damage.
