Hi,
Betacap has been prescribed to reduce the effects of hyperthyroidism like Tremor, palpitations, and anxiety.
It also has additional effect in blocking conversion of T4 to T3, reducing thyroxine levels and reducing hyperthyroidism.
Treatment needs to be continued till hyperthyroidism is there.
Betacap -TR means timed release. It will be released slowly so that you do not get any low BP symptoms.
Any further queries, happy to help again.
