Carviflo 10 MG Capsule is an alpha and a beta-blocker used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. After a heart attack, it is used to improve your chance of survival if your heart does not pump well. It also helps in preventing kidney problems, strokes and heart attacks. Carviflo 10 MG Capsule blocks the beta receptors in the heart muscle, making them less responsive to stress hormones. It also blocks alpha receptors on blood vessels which dilates them, lowering blood pressure and vascular resistance.
