Product introduction

Telmed Beta 50 Tablet is a medicine used for treating high blood pressure. By lowering blood pressure, it helps in preventing future heart attacks and strokes. Early treatment with this medicine also improves the chances of survival in patients with heart attacks.

It is advised to take Telmed Beta 50 Tablet with food at a fixed time each day to maintain consistent levels of medicine in the blood. Keep taking it for as long as advised by your doctor. Even if you feel well, do not stop this medicine on your own because high blood pressure often has no symptoms. If you stop taking it, your condition may get worse. Keeping active with regular exercise, reducing your weight and eating a healthy diet will also help control your blood pressure. Follow your doctor’s advice while taking this medicine.

Some common side effects of this medicine include headache, weakness, dizziness, decreased blood pressure, and increased potassium level in blood. It is advised to avoid potassium rich food and supplements while taking this medicine. It may cause dizziness, avoid driving or rise slowly from the sitting position. You may be asked for regular monitoring of blood pressure, blood sugar level, kidney functioning, urea, or electrolytes level during the treatment.

Before taking it, let your doctor know if you have any liver or kidney problems. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also consult their doctor for advice before taking this medicine. You also need to tell your doctor what other medicines you are taking especially those used to treat high blood pressure or heart conditions.

Benefits of Telmed Beta Tablet

In Treatment of Hypertension (high blood pressure)

Hypertension or an increase in blood pressure occurs when the blood vessels that supply blood to your heart become narrow. As a result of this, blood cannot flow smoothly to the heart, heart rate increases and it fails to pump blood effectively to other parts of the body. This puts a strain on the heart that can cause a chest pain or even a heart attack.
Telmed Beta 50 Tablet reduces pressure in the blood vessels. It relaxes the blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily to your heart. This reduces strain on the heart and slows down heart rate. This further reduces the risk of having a stroke, a heart attack, or kidney problems in the future.
You do not usually feel any direct benefit from taking this medicine, but it works in the long term to keep you well. You should take it regularly as prescribed for this medicine to be most effective, even if you feel better.

How Telmed Beta Tablet works

Telmed Beta 50 Tablet is a combination of two blood-pressure lowering medicines: Telmisartan and Metoprolol Succinate. Telmisartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB).

Metoprolol Succinate is a beta blocker which works specifically on the heart to reduce heart rate and lower blood pressure. Together they allow the blood to flow more smoothly and the heart to pump more efficiently.
