Drug Information Smolol
Smolol is a group of drugs called beta-blockers that work on the heart and blood vessels. Smolol slows down the heart by stopping sending messages from some nerves to the heart. It does this by blocking small areas (called beta-adrenergic receptors) where messages are received by your heart. As a result, your heart rate will be slower and less intense. Blood pressure in the blood vessels decreases, making it easier to pump blood around the body. If you have angina or tachycardia, osmolol can help reduce chest pain and improve your heart rate.
