Hi! Thank you for using HCM

I would give give some information about the main ingredient of the drug and the main effect .

-Isosorbit MN ( mononitrate) this is in a group of drugs called nitrates , it dilated blood vesels. We use it to preven heart atack .

-Metoprolol - Its a beta blocker , it's a beta1 blocker . There receptors are in the heart when they are activated they cause fast heart rate .We block them to slow the heart rate so we treat chest pain ( angina pectoris) and hypertension( high blood pressure )
- Torsemide - it's a diuretic .Helps to make more urine so you loose salt and water from your body .it helps to reduce edema and for hypertension.

-Benazepril-it's a ACE inhibitor , it works by blocking an enzyme that works to keep water and make constriction of the vessels. By using this drug we block the enzyme , we treat hypertension

-Carisoprodol -a muscle relaxer that works by blocking pain sensation between the nerves and the brain.

-Potassium cl- potassium chloride - It is used to treat low level of potassium .This microelement is very important to relax our cells , especially muscle so it low the vasoconstricton of the vessel and relax heart muscles , in the end we have lower blood pressure . ( treat hypertension ).
