Apo-Propranolol uses and description

Sort by popularity
Apo-Propranolol - Apo-Propranolol is a non-selective beta-blocker. This medication has antihypertensive, antianginal and antiarrhythmic action.

The hypotensive effect is associated with a decrease in minute volume of blood, sympathetic stimulation of peripheral vascular disease, decreased activity of the renin-angiotensin system (has a value in patients with initial hypersecretion of renin), sensitivity of baroreceptors of the aortic arch (not going to enhance their activity in response to decreased blood pressure) and the effect on the CNS. The hypotensive effect is stabilized by the end of the second week of the prescription course.

The antianginal effect of Apo-Propranolol is due to reduced myocardial oxygen demand (due to the negative chronotropic and inotropic effect).

The antiarrhythmic effect is due to the elimination of arrhythmogenic factors (tachycardia, increased activity of the sympathetic nervous system, increase of cAMP, hypertension), decrease in the rate of spontaneous excitation of the sinus and ectopic pacemakers and slowing of AV-holding.

The ability of this drug to prevent the development of headache of vascular origin is due to a decrease in expression of the expansion of cerebral arteries due to beta-adrenoblockade vascular receptors, inhibition induced by catecholamines platelet aggregation and lipolysis, reduction of platelet adhesiveness, prevention of activation of coagulation factors during the release of adrenaline, the stimulation of oxygen supply to tissues and decreased secretion of renin.

Reduction of tremor during treatment with Apo-Propranolol caused mainly by the blockade of peripheral beta2-adrenergic receptors.

This medicine increases the atherogenic properties of blood; strengthens uterine contractions (spontaneous or induced by means of stimulating the myometrium); increases the tone of the bronchi; in high doses cause sedation.

Hypertension : Treatment of mild to moderate hypertension. It is usually used in combination with other drugs, particularly a thiazide diuretic. Apo-Propranolol may, however, in certain patients be used alone or as an initial agent in those patients in whom, in the judgment of the physician, treatment should be started with a β-blocker rather than a diuretic. The combination of Apo-Propranolol with thiazide-like diuretics and/or peripheral vasodilators has been shown to be compatible and generally more effective than Apo-Propanolol alone. Experience with most commonly used antihypertensive agents has not suggested evidence of incompatibility. Apo-Propranolol is not recommended for the emergency treatment of hypertensive crises. Angina Pectoris: Prophylaxis of angina pectoris. Cardiac Arrhythmias: Supraventricular Arrhythmias: Paroxysmal atrial tachycardias, particularly those arrhythmias induced by catecholamines or digitalis or associated with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. Persistent sinus tachycardia which is noncompensatory and impairs the well-being of the patient. Tachycardias and arrhythmias due to thyrotoxicosis when causing distress or increased hazard and when immediate effect is necessary as adjunctive, short-term (2-4 weeks) therapy. May be used with, but not in place of, specific therapy. Persistent atrial extrasystoles which impair the well-being of the patient and do not respond to conventional measures. Atrial flutter and fibrillation when ventricular rate cannot be controlled by digitalis alone, or when digitalis is contraindicated. Tachyarrhythmias of Digitalis Intoxication: If digitalis-induced tachyarrhythmias persist following discontinuance of digitalis and correction of electrolyte abnormalities, they may be reversible with Apo-Propranolol. Severe bradycardia may occur. Migraine: Prophylaxis of migraine headache. It is not indicated for the treatment of acute migraine attacks. Hypertrophic Subaortic Stenosis: Management of hypertrophic subaortic stenosis, especially for treatment of exertional or other stress-induced angina, palpitations, and syncope. Apo-Propranolol may also improve exercise performance. The effectiveness of Apo-Propranolol HCl in this disease appears to be due to a reduction of the elevated outflow pressure gradient which is exacerbated by β-adrenergic receptor stimulation. Clinical improvement may be temporary. Pheochromocytoma: After primary treatment with an α-adrenergic-blocking agent has been instituted, Apo-Propranolol may be useful as adjunctive therapy if the control of tachycardia becomes necessary before or during surgery. It is hazardous to use Apo-Propranolol unless α-adrenergic-blocking drugs are already in use, since this would predispose to serious blood pressure rise. Blocking only the peripheral dilator (β) action of epinephrine leaves its constrictor (α) action unopposed. In the event of hemorrhage or shock, producing both β- and α-blockade is contraindicated since the combination prevents the increase in heart rate and peripheral vasoconstriction needed to maintain blood pressure. In inoperable or metastatic pheochromocytoma, Apo-Propanolol may be useful as an adjunct to the management of symptoms due to excessive β-adrenergic receptor stimulation.

Apo-Propranolol helps to keep your blood pressure under control. It may also be used to treat certain heart diseases such as angina pectoris (chest pain) and arrhythmia (irregular heart beats). Apo-Propranolol may also be used to relieve palpitations (fast and irregular heartbeats) commonly experienced by people with an overactive thyroid gland. Apo-Propranolol is also used together with other medicines to prevent migraine or in the treatment of specific complications caused by liver disease.
