Timolol is used with or without other medications to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Blocadren is also used after a heart attack to help prevent another heart attack from occurring. Blocadren belongs to a class of drugs known as beta blockers. It works by blocking the action of certain natural chemicals in your body such as epinephrine on the heart and blood vessels. This effect lowers the heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on the heart. Blocadren is also used to prevent migraine headaches.
Do not stop taking Blocadren without consulting your doctor. Some conditions may become worse when you suddenly stop Blocadren. Some people who have suddenly stopped taking similar drugs have had chest pain, heart attack, and irregular heartbeat. If your doctor decides you should no longer use Blocadren, your doctor may direct you to gradually decrease your dose over 1 to 2 weeks. When gradually stopping Blocadren, it is recommended that you temporarily limit physical activity to decrease strain on the heart. Seek immediate medical attention if you develop chest pain/tightness/pressure, chest pain spreading to the jaw/neck/arm, unusual sweating, trouble breathing, or fast/irregular heartbeat.
