Nebicard 10 mg (Nebivolol)
Nebicard 10 mg is a drug used for the treatment of high Blood Pressure (BP) / Hypertension, which means high tension or pressure in the blood vessels (arteries) that carry blood in the body. Hypertension has hardly any discernible symptoms until it has already done considerable damage to the heart and arteries. Hypertension is a big provoking factor, for various cardiovascular complications, such as heart failure, heart attack, and stroke.
Nebicard 10 mg contains Nebivolol as an active ingredient, which has selective and potent beta blocking properties. It belongs to the category of beta adrenergic blockers. Out of all the known antihypertensive agents, Nebicard is among the most effective medicines, with least side effects.
What is Nebicard used for?
Nebicard reduces the heart rate, lowers the enhanced cardiac output, along with the relaxation of blood vessels. Nebicard 10 mg tablets are prescribed in the following conditions:
- Hypertension: For treatment of primary hypertension. Primary hypertension has undetermined causes and develops gradually over time.
- Chronic heart failure: For treatment of stable/mild and moderate heart failure, in 70 years and older patients.
Nebicard shows higher cardio selectivity, than other beta blockers, recommended in hypertension (Nebivolol has shown 3.5 times more beta1 selectivity than bisoprolol). This potent medicine effectively decreases the blood pressure and heart rate. Nebicard helps in preventing cardiac complications and ensures better blood supply to the heart.
How does Nebicard work?
Nebicard is made up of Nebivolol, a third generation beta blocker that selectively blocks the β1 adrenergic receptors, present in cardiac tissues. They suppress the effects of adrenaline, which slows down the heartbeat, with minimal force, resulting in reducing blood pressure. It also decreases the stroke volume and preserves cardiac output. Alongside, Nebicard has a vasodilating effect, as it interacts with endothelial L-arginine / nitric oxide pathway and facilitates the release of nitric oxide. This, in turn, relaxes the blood supplying vessels and reduces tension.
