About Ziblok-50 Tablet 14’s
Ziblok-50 Tablet 14’s 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), chest pain with painful tightness in the chest (angina pectoris), and 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.
Ziblok-50 Tablet 14’s contains atenolol, which primarily helps relax our blood vessels by blocking the action of certain natural substances in your body. Thus, Ziblok-50 Tablet 14’s 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.
