Each uncoated tablet contains:
Nebivolol Hydrochloride equivalent to Nebivolol 5 mg
Nebivolol is a ß-adrenergic receptor blocking agent. It is a racemate of enantiomers L-nebivolol and d-nebivolol. Nebivolol is a long acting cardioselective beta blocker licensed for treatment of hypertension. It has vasodilatory property attributed to interaction with L-arginine/nitric oxide pathway. It thus enhances endothelial nitric oxide release.
