About Atzee AM 50 mg/5 mg Tablet 15's

Atzee AM 50 mg/5 mg Tablet 15's belongs to a class of 'anti-hypertensive' medication primarily used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a lifelong or chronic condition in which the blood pressure against the artery walls becomes too high. This can lead to damaged blood vessels, heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and other problems.

Atzee AM 50 mg/5 mg Tablet 15's contains Amlodipine (a calcium channel blocker) and Atenolol (a beta-blocker). Amlodipine acts by relaxing and widening the constricted blood vessels.

Atenolol works by blocking stress hormones like adrenaline and epinephrine, thereby slowing down the increased heart rate. Thus, it helps lower raised blood pressure, reducing the chances of heart attack or stroke in the future.

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Hypertension: The blood exerts increased pressure on the walls of blood vessels leading to hypertension. High blood pressure is expressed as systolic/diastolic pressure. Systolic pressure is the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats or pumps out blood. Diastolic pressure is the pressure in the arteries between the heartbeats. Blood pressure is measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg) by a blood pressure monitor called a sphygmomanometer. Some of the symptoms are headache, dizziness, nosebleeds, altered vision, chest pain, weakness, and shortness of breath. However, most of the time, the signs and symptoms of hypertension are none.
