About Metolar-50 Tablet 15's

Metolar-50 Tablet 15's is a combination drug, containing Enalapril (ACE inhibitors), and Propranolol (beta-blocker). It collectively treats high blood pressure and prevents the chance of having heart failure or stroke in future. Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a chronic condition in which the force exerted by the blood against the artery walls becomes so high to cause heart or kidney diseases.

Metolar-50 Tablet 15's is composed of Enalapril and Propranolol. Together they work by relaxing and widening our blood vessels (veins and arteries). It lowers the raised blood pressure and makes it easier for the heart to pump blood efficiently around the body. Hence, the chance of having any heart attack, stroke, heart-related chest pain (angina) or other cardiovascular diseases reduces significantly.

Metolar-50 Tablet 15's can be taken orally with or without food or as directed by your physician. Common side effects like headache, dizziness, non-productive tickling cough, digestive disturbances, abdominal discomfort, dyspepsia, diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, rash, muscle spasms, myalgia (muscular pain), and dry eyes have been reported in patients taking Metolar-50 Tablet 15's. Most of the side effects of Metolar-50 Tablet 15's do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Hypertension (High blood pressure): It is a condition in which the force exerted by the blood against the artery walls becomes so high to cause heart and kidney diseases. Normal range of a blood pressure is 120/80 mm of Hg. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is the major cause of high blood pressure, as the kidneys cannot filter out fluid and this excess fluid in our body leads to hypertension. Conditions like diabetes, stress, sedentary lifestyle, smoking, respiratory diseases (asthma or COPD), obesity, pregnancy, overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), and kidney diseases can lead to high blood pressure.
