Dosing & Indication
Side Effects

This drug is prescribed to patients with high blood pressure (normal blood pressure for adults is usually 120/80 mmHg) and to patients with mild to moderate and chronic heart failure. Heart failure is a condition in which the heart is unable to pump enough blood to the extremities.

Carlov 12.5mg Tablet 10 'S belongs to a group of chemicals known as beta blockers which work on the heart muscles, to lower the number of contractions (heartbeats) per minute of the heart and thereby, making sure that the flow and release of blood from the heart usually continues.

Carlov 12.5mg Tablet 10 'S also works on the human blood vessels and helps in bringing raised blood pressure levels to normal by preventing the narrowing of vessels so that blood may flow with ease through them and reach all the organs in the body.
