Description

What is Timolol used for? 

Timolol, with the generic name timolol maleate, is an oral medication used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). It prevents heart attack, stroke, and kidney problems. It is also prescribed to prevent the recurrence of myocardial infarction.

This is available in Timolol 5 mg, 10 mg, and 20 mg tablets.

Timolol Mechanism of Action 

This beta-blocker works mainly by blocking the interactions between endogenous catecholamines and, at the same time, preventing the G-protein cascade from occurring. This decreases the sympathetic tone, leading to a decrease in blood pressure.
