Acarbose is used to treat diabetes in combination with diet and other medications.
Acarbose controls the blood sugar levels which usually rise after meals by inhibiting a specific enzyme and slowing down the digestion process.
This medication is a calcium channel blocker, prescribed for high blood pressure and chest pain. It widens blood vessels and improves blood flow by not making the heart pump harder.
Atenolol blocks beta-1 receptors, which are present on the heart. This prevents the action of nerve chemicals adrenaline and noradrenaline on the heart. As a result, heart beats at a slower rate and with lesser force, and thus pumps out lesser blood into blood vessels. This action of atenolol reduces blood pressure in the hypertensive patients. Since the heart treated with atenolol beat slowly and with less force, it uses lesser energy thus relieving pain in angina and also reduces the risk of heart attack.
This medication is an HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor, also known as "statin”, prescribed for hyperlipidemia.
This medication is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist, prescribed for high blood pressure. It blocks the action of certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels, so blood flows more smoothly. High blood pressure reduction helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems.
This medication is an alpha- and beta-blocker, prescribed for heart failure and high blood pressure.
This medication is a calcium channel blocker, prescribed for high blood pressure and angina pectoris (chest pain).
This medication is a lipid-lowering agent, prescribed for hypercholesterolemia.
This medication is a thiazide diuretic, prescribed for high blood pressure (hypertension) and edema.
This medication is a beta-blocker, prescribed for high blood pressure either alone or with other medications. It is also used for chest pain, migraine and hyperthyroidism.
This medication is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. It is also used to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke in patients at risk for these problems and to improve survival in patients with heart failure after a heart attack.
This medication is angiotensin receptor blocker (ARBs), prescribed for hypertension.
