Active Ingredient : Nebivolol hydrochloride.
What is Nebivolol and for what Nebivolol is used ?
Nebivolol belongs to a group of medicines called beta-blockers, which block beta receptors in the heart, lungs and other organs of the body. Blocking these receptors prevents the action of two chemicals called noradrenaline and adrenaline that occur naturally in the body. These are often referred to as the 'fight or flight' chemicals as they are responsible for the body's reaction to stressful situations.
Blocking the beta receptors in the heart causes the heart to beat more slowly and with less force. This means that the pressure at which blood is pumped out of the heart to the rest of the body is reduced. This medicine also widens the blood vessels. These are two of the ways in which nebivolol helps to reduce blood pressure, however the whole mechanism is not fully understood.
