In Treatment of Hypertensive emergency

This slows down the heart rate and helps the heart beat with less force thereby lowering your blood pressure. This medicine is injected into a vein under the supervision of a doctor. It is used for immediate reduction of very high blood pressure (hypertensive emergency). A controlled blood pressure reduces the risk of having a heart attack, stroke, or kidney problems.

In Treatment of Hypertension (high blood pressure)

Metolar 1mg Injection belongs to a group of medicine called long-acting beta-blocker. It works by blocking the effects of some chemicals on your heart and blood vessels. It slows down your heart rate and helps the heartbeat with less force. This lowers your blood pressure and helps in reducing your risk of having a stroke, a heart attack, other heart problems, or kidney problems in the future. This medicine needs to be taken regularly to be effective, so keep taking it even if you feel well. Do not stop without talking to your doctor.

In Treatment of Angina (heart-related chest pain)

You should take it regularly and as long as it is prescribed for it to work effectively.

Do not stop without talking to your doctor.

In Treatment of Migraine
