Hybloc tablets is one of the leading products for treating high blood pressure (hypertension) and chest pain (angina pectoris). The tablets initially reduce the body's blood pressure, meaning that the heart is under less strain and the oxygen demand around the body is lessened.
The active ingredient in Hybloc tablets is labetalol hydrochloride, which is part of the group of medicines known as beta-blockers. Labetalol hydrochloride works by altering the bodys response to some nerve impulses. This results in widened blood vessels in the body, thereby causing a reduction in blood pressure.
