MET XL NT TABLET


Overview

Introduction

By lowering the blood pressure, it helps in preventing future heart attack and stroke. Early treatment with this medicine improves chances of survival in patients of heart attack.

How Met XL NT Tablet ER works

MET XL NT TABLET is a combination of two medicines: Metoprolol Succinate and Isosorbide Mononitrate. Metoprolol Succinate is a nitrate which relaxes the blood vessels and decreases the oxygen demand of the heart. Isosorbide Mononitrate is a long-acting beta blocker that works specifically on the heart. It works by slowing down the heart rate and makes the heart more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body. Together, they improve symptoms of angina (chest pain) and heart failure.

Dr. Sfurti Mann
Diabetes Specialist
Voglibose and pioglitazone both are medications used for diabetes but there mechanism of action is different and so are their side effects. Voglibose acts to reduce post prandial blood glucose whereas pioglitazone improves insulin sensitivity and improves glycemic control. Voglibose causes gastric side effects and sometimes affects the liver whereas pioglitazone should not be given to patients with heart ailments as it can worsen heart failure.
