Beloc contains Propranolol which is a beta-blocker that affects the heart and blood circulation. This medication is used to treat tremors, hypertension, angina or chest pain, heart rhythm and other heart circulatory problems. Beloc may also be used to prevent and treat heart attacks and to reduce the occurrence and severity of migraines.
Propranolol competes with neurotransmitters to bind at beta1 and beta2 receptors in heart and blood vessels, thereby reducing heartbeat, blood pressure, and the strain on the heart after a heart attack.
