About CTD M 6.25/50MG TABLET

CTD M 6.25/50MG TABLET belongs to a group of medications called ‘antihypertensives’ used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). It can also reduce oedema (fluid retention) in hypertensive patients. Hypertension is a condition in which there will be a persistent rise in blood pressure levels. This condition can also cause fluid retention, leading to peripheral oedema (swelling of legs and hands). 

CTD M 6.25/50MG TABLET is a combination of two medicines: Metoprolol and Chlorthalidone. Metoprolol is a beta-blocker and works by blocking epinephrine, resulting in a decrease in heart rate and blood pressure. Chlorthalidone is a diuretic or water pill that acts by expelling excess water and salt from the body. It helps in decreasing fluid accumulation and oedema.
