About Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S

Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S belongs to a group of medicines called beta-blockers used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), heart-related chest pain (angina), irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia), and to protect the heart after a heart attack (myocardial infarction). Hypertension or high blood pressure is a chronic condition in which the blood exerts an increased pressure against the arteries that may lead to various types of heart diseases. Besides this, Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S may also help in relieving symptoms of migraine-related headache and tremors (fits). 

Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S contains 'Metoprolol', which helps in slowing down the heart rate, making it easier for the heart to pump blood throughout the body. This lowers the blood pressure and helps in reducing the risk of having a stroke, heart attack, or other heart or kidney problems in the future. 

Based on your medical condition, your doctor will decide the dose and duration. In some cases, Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S may cause certain common side effects like dizziness, tiredness, diarrhoea, stomach pain, nausea, and headache. Most of these side effects do not require medical attention and resolve gradually over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.

Inform your doctor if you have low blood pressure, asthma, overactive thyroid, metabolic acidosis, or severe blood circulation problems. Consult your doctor before taking Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S is not recommended for use in children. Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S may cause dizziness, so drive with caution. Avoid alcohol consumption while taking Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S as it might increase the blood pressure-lowering effect of Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S. Keep your doctor informed about your health condition and medications to rule out any interactions.

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Hypertension: The blood exerts increased pressure on the walls of blood vessels leading to hypertension. Blood pressure is the measurement of the heart's force to pump blood to all parts of the body. Hypertension is a chronic condition in which blood pressure is too high. This condition can lead to hardened arteries (blood vessels), decreasing the blood and oxygen flow to the heart. Raised blood pressure can cause chest pain (angina) and heart attack (when blood supply to the heart is blocked). Additionally, high blood pressure also causes brain damage (stroke) and kidney failure. High blood pressure can be diagnosed with the help of a blood pressure monitor or sphygmomanometer. Normal blood pressure lies between 90/60 mm of Hg and 120/80 mm of Hg. If the blood pressure is 140/90 mmHg or greater, it is considered high blood pressure.

    FAQs

    Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S helps in slowing down the heart rate, making it easier for the heart to pump blood throughout the body. Thereby, lowers blood pressure.

    High blood pressure increases the workload on the arteries and heart. If untreated, it could damage the blood vessels of the heart, brain, and kidney and might result in stroke, heart failure or kidney failure. Hypertension increases the risk of heart attacks. Therefore, anti-hypertensives such as Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S are used to lower the blood pressure to normal; this reduces the risk of developing these disorders.

    Do not stop taking Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S without consulting your doctor as it may lead to a rise in blood pressure. To treat your condition effectually, continue taking Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S for as long as your doctor has prescribed it to you. Do not be reluctant to speak with your doctor if you experience any difficulty while taking Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S.

    Consult your doctor before taking Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S if you have hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) as it might mask the symptoms or make it difficult to recognise the signs of thyrotoxicosis (excess thyroid hormone in the body).

    Consult your doctor before taking Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S with anti-diabetic medicines as it might mask the signs of low blood sugar. Regular monitoring of blood glucose levels while taking Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S is advised.

    Your doctor may probably ask you to stop taking Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S 24hours prior to the surgery, as it might lower blood pressure when combined with general anaesthesia. If you are due to have any surgery or are receiving an anaesthetic, inform the doctor that you are taking Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S.

    Taking Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S along with multivitamin/multimineral supplements may decrease the effect of Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S. Therefore, maintain a gap of at least 2 hours between both. However, you are advised to take Xr-Beta 25Mg Tab 10'S with other medicines only after consulting your doctor.
