Chronic heart failure is a heart disease which happens when your heart cannot pump enough blood to the rest of your body. Bradia mainly works by reducing the heart rate a few beats per minute. As increased heart rate affects the heart functioning in patients with chronic heart failure, the specific heart rate lowering action of Bradia helps to improve the heart functioning and survival in these patients
Angina is a heart disease which happens when the heart does not receive enough oxygen. Bradia mainly works by reducing the heart rate a few beats per minute. This lowers the work of heart and heart's need for oxygen especially in the situations when an angina attack is more likely to happen. In this way, Bradia helps to control and reduce the number of angina attacks.
Bradia can lower blood pressure, although it is an uncommon side effect. Uncontrolled blood pressure is a common side effect of Bradia. Please consult your doctor before taking Bradia if you suffer from mild to moderate low blood pressure or if you suffer from uncontrolled blood pressure, especially after a change in your treatment for blood pressure.
Bradia causes a decrease in heart rate which may cause QT prolongation, giving rise to severe arrhythmias (condition in which the heart beats with an irregular or abnormal rhythm) especially torsades de pointes.
