Description
Beta L 750 MG Injection is a beta-blocker that works on the heart and blood vessels. It is used for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmia, a condition where the heart can beat too fast, too slow or with an irregular pattern. Beta L 750 MG Injection slows down the activity of your heart allowing your heart to beat slower and less forcefully. Beta L 750 MG Injection is also used to treat acute myocardial infarction (heart attack) and reduce the risk of death. It is used in patients who have already had a heart attack. A heart attack occurs when one of the heart's blood vessel is blocked due to a clot or blood flow decreases or stops to the heart. Beta L 750 MG Injection causes blood vessels to relax which helps to reduce the blood pressure and improves the blood flow to the heart. Side effects of Beta L 750 MG Injection are dizziness, headache, breathing difficulty, and pain at the injection site. It is administered into your vein by a health care professional in a hospital or clinic. Appropriate lifestyle changes like a low-fat diet, exercise, and smoking cessation should be followed for the best possible effects.

Cardiogenic shock

Cardiogenic shock is a condition in which the heart is unable to pump enough blood to the organs. Beta L 750 MG Injection can further reduce cardiac output (amount of blood the heart pumps out in a minute) and blood pressure, which can be harmful in patients with cardiogenic shock.

Heart block greater than first degree

There are electrical signals that control the heartbeat. These signals tell your heart muscle to contract and pump blood correctly. Heart block occurs when these signals are slowed down. Heart block is named first-, second-, or third-degree. First-degree heart block is the least severe, second-degree heart block is severe and can often progress to third-degree heart block, the most severe form. Beta L 750 MG Injection is not recommended to treat second or third-degree heart block that requires emergency attention.

Bradycardia

Bradycardia or slow heart rate occurs when your heart beats less than 60 times per minute. Beta L 750 MG Injection is not recommended to treat a slow heart rate.

Decompensated heart failure

Decompensated heart failure is a condition where there is a change in the structure of heart tissue leading to an inability of the heart to pump and/or accommodate blood within normal pressure levels. Beta L 750 MG Injection can lower the blood pressure in patients with decompensated heart failure causing a necessity for immediate medical intervention
