BETATROP TABLET belongs to the class of combination medication called 'anti-hypertensive drugs,' primarily used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). Hypertension is a medical condition in which the blood exerts high pressure (force exerted by circulating blood) against blood vessels' walls. This condition makes the heart work harder in pumping blood to the whole body. Hypertension can cause severe health complications, including stroke, heart failure, heart attack, and kidney failure.
BETATROP TABLET contains Atenolol (beta-blocker) and Nifedipine (calcium channel blocker). Atenolol works by reducing the heart rate and makes the heart to pump blood efficiently throughout the body. Nifedipine works by relaxing the blood vessels; this lowers your blood pressure and reduces your risk of having a stroke, a heart attack, other heart problems, or kidney problems in the future. This medicine needs to be taken regularly to be effective and also for the best results.
