Valvozid 5mg Tablet contains the active ingredient Bisoprolol, which is a medication belonging to the class of beta-blockers. It is commonly prescribed for the management of various cardiovascular conditions, including hypertension (high blood pressure), angina (chest pain), and heart failure.
Bisoprolol: This medication works by blocking the action of adrenaline on beta receptors in the heart and blood vessels. By doing so, it reduces heart rate, blood pressure, and the workload on the heart, thereby improving its efficiency and reducing the risk of cardiovascular events.
Valvozid 5mg Tablet is indicated for:
Treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure) to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of cardiovascular complications.
Management of stable angina (chest pain) to improve exercise tolerance and reduce the frequency of angina attacks.
Adjunctive therapy in the management of chronic heart failure to improve symptoms and reduce hospitalizations.
Mechanism of Action:
Bisoprolol blocks the beta-adrenergic receptors, particularly the beta-1 receptors located in the heart, which results in:
Reduction of heart rate: Bisoprolol slows down the heart rate, which decreases the workload on the heart and reduces oxygen demand.
Decrease in blood pressure: By reducing cardiac output and inhibiting the release of renin, Bisoprolol lowers blood pressure.
Antiarrhythmic effects: Bisoprolol may help stabilize heart rhythm in certain patients.
Take Valvozid 5mg Tablet orally, with or without food, as directed by your healthcare provider. The dosage may vary depending on your medical condition and response to treatment. It’s essential to follow your doctor’s instructions carefully.
