How A2 Tablet works

A2 Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Atenolol and Atorvastatin which treat high blood pressure and cholesterol. Atenolol is a beta blocker that works specifically on the heart. It slows down the heart rate and relaxes blood vessels to improve blood flow. Atorvastatin is a lipid-lowering medication which works by blocking an enzyme (HMG-CoA-reductase) that is required in the body to make cholesterol. It thus lowers "bad" cholesterol (LDL), triglycerides and raises "good" cholesterol (HDL). Together, they reduce the risk of heart diseases.
