ATEN H 12.5MG TABLET
ATEN H 12.5MG TABLET belongs to a class of medicines known as blood pressure-lowering medicine. ATEN H 12.5MG TABLET is primarily used to treat high blood pressure. Hypertension or high blood pressure is a chronic condition in which the force exerted by the blood against the artery wall is high. As a result, it leads to heart diseases, irregular heartbeat, and other complications.
ATEN H 12.5MG TABLET contains two medicines: atenolol and hydrochlorothiazide which collectively lowers blood pressure. Atenolol is a beta-blocker that works specifically on the heart to slow down the heart rate. Hydrochlorothiazide (diuretic) works by increasing the amount of urine passed out from the kidneys. It effectively reduces excess fluid overload in the body and treats edema (swelling) associated with heart, liver, kidney, or lung disease. This reduces the heart's workload and makes the heart more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body. Thus, collectively, both help lower high blood pressure, reducing heart attack, or stroke chances.
