Description

Metoprolol Succinate Prolonged Release & Amlodipine Tablets – Metoprolol succinate and amlodipine are antihypertensive agents used to treat high blood pressure/hypertension and angina pectoris. This medicine is a beta blocker used to treat chest pain (angina), heart failure, and high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure can help prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This medication works by blocking certain natural chemicals in your body, such as epinephrine, that affect the heart and blood vessels. It lowers heart rate, blood pressure, and stress on the heart.

How Metoprolol Succinate Prolonged Release & Amlodipine Tablet Works?

Metoprolol succinate extended-release tablets and amlodipine tablets work by focusing on two main aspects of blood pressure control. The beta-blocker metoprolol succinate reduces the workload of the heart by blocking the action of adrenaline, resulting in a slower heart rate and contractions. It helps lower blood pressure. The calcium channel blocker amlodipine relaxes and dilates the blood vessels, which makes it easier for the heart to pump blood and reduces the tension in the heart muscle. Together, they work synergistically to control blood pressure by improving circulation and reducing the heart’s workload, which helps control blood pressure.

Uses of Metoprolol Succinate Prolonged Release & Amlodipine Tablets

Metoprolol succinate extended-release tablets and amlodipine tablets are commonly used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and some heart diseases. Here is a provision of their use:

  • Hypertension (High Blood Pressure): The combination drug works by relaxing blood vessels, making it easier for the heart to pump blood around the body, thereby lowering blood pressure. This effect results in lowering the heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on the heart.
  • Angina (Chest Pain): Amlodipine is sometimes used to treat chest pain (angina) caused by reduced blood flow to the heart muscle due to coronary artery disease.
  • Heart Failure: Metoprolol succinate may be prescribed to manage heart failure. It can help improve symptoms, exercise tolerance, and reduce the risk of hospitalization due to worsening heart failure.
  • Arrhythmias (Irregular Heartbeat): Metoprolol succinate is also used to manage certain types of irregular heartbeats, such as atrial fibrillation.
  • Coronary Artery Disease: Both medications may be prescribed to manage coronary artery disease, which is a condition where the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart become narrowed or may lead to heart attack.
  • Prevention of Heart Attacks: Metoprolol succinate may also be prescribed to prevent future heart attacks in people who have already had one.

Note: Always follow the dosage of medications precisely as prescribed by your healthcare professional. Do not stop taking them without consulting your doctor, as sudden discontinuation of some medications can cause serious complications.
