INTRODUCTION

TRILOL 20MG TABLET contains Propranolol which belongs to the group of medicines called Beta blockers. It is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure), angina (chest pain) and arrhythmia (irregular heart rhythm).

It can also be used to control abnormal increase in blood pressure and/or heart rate caused due to various underlying conditions such as anxiety, overactive thyroid gland, phaeochromocytoma (tumours of adrenal gland) or Hypertrophic Subaortic Stenosis (thickening of heart muscles).

TRILOL 20MG TABLET primarily exerts its effects on the heart and improves blood circulation to the heart and to other parts of body. Therefore, it can also be used to prevent heart attacks and migraine headaches. It also controls shakiness of the body by blocking abnormal nerve signals between the brain and the muscles.

Before taking TRILOL 20MG TABLET inform your doctor if you have any liver or kidney problems. You must also inform your doctor if you have any other types of anginas (unstable or Prinzmetal angina) or arrhythmia (such as Wolf-Parkinson-White Syndrome), any breathing problems, or diabetes as a precaution.

TRILOL 20MG TABLET is not recommended for use in patients with severe asthma, hypotension (low blood pressure) or shock. It is also not suitable for use in patients with heart block, history of heart attack or heart failure.

Do not take TRILOL 20MG TABLET without consulting your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. The most common side effects of taking TRILOL 20MG TABLET are cold fingers and toes, slow heartbeat, tiredness, sleep disturbances and Raynaud’s syndrome (numbness and spasm in the fingers followed by warmth and pain). Consult your doctor if any of these side effect troubles you.

USES OF TRILOL 20MG TABLET

It is used to:

  • Treat hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Treat angina pectoris (chest pain)
  • Treat arrhythmia (irregular heart rhythm)
  • Prevent heart attack
  • Prevent migraine (severe headache on side of the head)
  • Reduce tremor (shakiness) and anxiety
  • Reduce gut bleeding (caused due to high blood pressure in the liver)

It can also be used to treat signs and symptoms associated with:

  • overactive thyroid gland (such as palpitation, nervousness, tremor, fixed stare, severe myopathy and sweating)
  • phaeochromocytoma (high blood pressure and fast heart rate caused due to tumour of adrenal glands)
  • Hypertrophic Subaortic Stenosis (thickening of heart muscles causing strain on heart while pumping blood)

HOW TRILOL 20MG TABLET WORKS

TRILOL 20MG TABLET is a beta-blocker. It works by blocking the actions of certain chemical messengers (such as adrenaline and noradrenaline) in our body that controls the function of the heart, brain and kidneys and lungs.

In the heart, stopping the actions of these chemical messengers reduces the heart rate and force of contraction. This helps to control abnormal heart rate in patients suffering from arrhythmia.

It can also reduce the risk of abnormal heart signs (such as racing heartbeat, nervousness and high blood pressure) associated with phaeochromocytoma or anxiety.

TRILOL 20MG TABLET can relax the blood vessels supplying the heart and the brain. This action improves blood flow and oxygen supply to the heart and makes the heart to pump blood more efficiently with less pressure. It also helps in treating and preventing problems caused due to poor blood circulation such as chest pain (angina), heart attack or migraine.

Additionally, TRILOL 20MG TABLET reduces the production of thyroid hormones (triiodothyronine) in patients suffering from overactive thyroid gland. It also stops the transfer of abnormal nerve signals between the brain and the muscles which helps in reducing tremors.
