UNILOC TABLET belongs to a group of heart disease-related medicines known as beta-blockers. It helps in the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension), irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias), and chest pain with painful tightness in the chest (angina pectoris). It protects the heart in the early treatment after a heart attack (myocardial infarction). High blood pressure increases the heart's workload, and if it continues for a long time, the heart and blood vessels (arteries) may not function properly. It can damage the arteries of the brain, heart, and kidneys, resulting in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure. However, lowering blood pressure may reduce the risk of stroke and heart attacks.
UNILOC TABLET contains atenolol, which primarily helps relax our blood vessels by blocking the action of certain natural substances in your body. Thus, UNILOC TABLET helps lower your raised blood pressure and reduce the risk of having a stroke, a heart attack, other heart problems, or kidney problems in the future.
Your doctor will advise you on how often you take UNILOC TABLET based on your medical condition. Sometimes, you may experience headaches, cold hands/feet, diarrhoea, feeling sick (nausea), tired, aching muscles, depressed mood, and dizziness. Most of these side effects of UNILOC TABLET do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist, contact your doctor.
Don't stop taking UNILOC TABLET without talking to your doctor first. Stopping UNILOC TABLET gradually may cause heart rhythm and blood pressure changes and cause chest pain or a heart attack. Your doctor will lower your dose slowly over some time to help prevent these symptoms. If you are a pregnant woman or nursing mother, do not consume UNILOC TABLET without consulting your doctor. Talk to your doctor before taking the UNILOC TABLET if you have a very slow heartbeat, asthma, diabetes, thyrotoxicosis (thyroid gland disorders), serious heart condition (sick sinus syndrome) or any heart blockage, and severe kidney disease. UNILOC TABLET is not recommended for children below 12 years. Before taking the UNILOC TABLET, inform your doctor about your medical history and ongoing therapies to rule out potential adverse effects or interactions.

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.
Arrhythmia: It is a problem associated with the rate of rhythm at which the heart beats. Generally, in this condition, the heart beats too fast, too slow, or irregularly. It can lead to severe heart damage. A cardiac arrhythmia occurs when there are abnormal electrical signals in the heart. When the heart beats too fast, it is known as tachycardia, and if it is too slow, it is called bradycardia. Treatment of arrhythmia includes drugs, medical procedures, implantable devices and sometimes surgery.
