  • How does it work?
  • Carditec is metoprolol, a beta blocker which is used in the management of hypertension, angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmias, myocardial infarction and heart failure. It is also used in the management of hyperthyroidism and in prophylactic treatment of migraine. Metorpolol works by selectively inhibiting the effects of adrenaline at the beta 1 receptors thereby preventing arrhythmia and helping the heart to slow down. Metoprolol is readily and completely absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract but is subject to considerable first-pass metabolism. Peak plasma concentrations occur about 1.5 hours after a single oral dose. It is moderately lipid soluble.
  • How is it taken?
  • In the management of hypertension, initial dose of 100mg daily, to be adjusted weekly according to the response of the patient to 400mg daily or 200mg twice daily. The usual maintenance dose is 100mg to 200mg daily. In the management of angina pectoris, 50mg to 100mg twice or three times daily. In cardiac arrhythmias, the usual is 50mg twice or three times daily, increased if necessary up to 300mg daily, in divided doses. For the prophylactic treatment of migraine, the usual dose is 100mg to 300mg daily in divided doses. For hyperthyroidism, it is given 50mg four times daily.
