Euradal review

Euradal, a selective adrenergic receptor blocker belonging to a class of medications, works directly on the heart and blood circulation. It is mainly used to treat cardiovascular illnesss such as hypertension (high blood pressure), coronary heart illness, arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat), ischemic heart illness (restricted blood supply to the heart), and myocardial infarction (necrosis of the heart muscle leading to heart attack).

Euradal works by blocking the heart's beta-adrenergic receptors, found in the body's sympathetic nervous system. This reduces the heart rate, preventing an abnormal rapid heartbeat, while relaxing the blood vessels so the heart does not need to pump too hard.

This medication is prescribed to patients with congestive heart failure to reduce the heart muscle's oxygen consumption. It decreases the heart's contraction force, lowering blood pressure and lessening the heart's need for oxygen. When the heart's need for oxygen exceeds the amount supplied, heart pain or angina occurs. This makes Euradal ideal for the treating angina.

This medication can also be used in the treatment of dysautonomia (disorder of the autonomic nervous system), anxiety, and hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid gland).

Prior to taking Euradal, patients should inform their physician if they are allergic to this or any medication. The physician should be advised if the patient is currently taking any prescription or over-the-counter medications, including vitamins, minerals or herbal supplements. For patients taking calcium channel blockers like diltiazem, verapamil, clonidine, or guanethidine, your physician will need to alter the Euradal dosage. Patients taking this medication should not also take medications indicated for irregular heartbeat like disopyramide, other beta blockers like reserpine, or other contraindicated medications such as rifampin and digoxin. In cases where the physician determines prescribing this medication in conjunction with any of the aforementioned medications, close monitoring of the patient is necessary.

Euradal is not recommended for patients with asthma or other bronchial illnesss; a slow heart rate; a history of heart failure; any existing liver, kidney or heart illness; diabetes; allergies; circulation disorders, or hyperthyroidism.

Euradal is classified in pregnancy category C, which means it is not known whether the medication can harm an unborn child. Patients need to inform their physician if they are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or if they do become pregnant during the course of treatment. Patients that are breastfeeding an infant will need to consult with their physician prior to taking this medication since Euradal can be secreted into breast milk and may harm a nursing infant.

Patients need to disclose their Euradal therapy prior to any type of surgery, including dental procedures. Euradal treatment will have to be temporarily stopped, under medical supervision, before undergoing a surgical procedure.

Euradal causes drowsiness and reduced alertness, so patients are advised not to drive a vehicle or operate any kind of machinery while on this medication. Patients should avoid alcohol consumption while taking Euradal since this activity may also exacerbate the effect of dizziness that Euradal may cause.

In rare instances, patients may develop headaches, nausea, abdominal cramping, diarrhea, erectile dysfunction, slow heart rate, unexplained weight gain, low blood pressure, numbness and tingling, acute pharyngitis, clamminess and swelling of the hands and feet, fainting, and wheezing or shortness of breath. If these symptoms persist, patients are advised to consult their physician immediately.

Diabetics should talk with their physician if they are taking Euradal, since the medication can alter the results of blood tests for diabetes, particularly those for hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar.

Euradal is distributed under the brand names Concor, Zebeta, Concore and Monocor and is available by prescription in 5mg and 10mg pink, heart-shaped, film-coated pills. Euradal should be taken orally according to the physician's prescription, once daily with water, at the same time each day. Your physician may prescribe a low-salt diet to complement the treatment.

Because Euradal may be a part of a comprehensive treatment program for hypertension, it cannot get rid of the illness altogether. Patients need to stick to a healthy diet, regular exercise and their prescribed medication to control hypertension.

Euradal is a preventive maintenance medication that may need to be taken for the rest of the patient's life, even in the absence of hypertensive symptoms. Suddenly ending Euradal therapy without medical advice may cause the patient's condition to worsen.
