Uses of Nodon Am (5/5 mg) Tablet
What is it prescribed for?
Essential hypertension is high blood pressure that doesn’t have a clearly identifiable cause but maybe due to various factors such as genetics, poor diet, obesity or lack of exercise. Over time, high blood pressure can cause blood vessel damage that leads to heart problems, kidney problems, stroke, and other medical conditions. Nodon Am (5/5 mg) Tablet is used in the treatment of high blood pressure which may be caused by genetic or environmental factors.
When not to use?
Avoid taking Nodon Am (5/5 mg) Tablet if you have a known allergy to Nebivolol, and other medicines used for heart conditions (beta-blockers, Amlodipine, or other calcium channel blockers). This could lead to symptoms like redness, swelling, breathing difficulty, hives (painful eruptions that itch and sting), etc.
Severe liver impairment
Nodon Am (5/5 mg) Tablet is not recommended for use in people with severe liver problems. This medicine is broken down and absorbed in the liver. Taking this medicine while you have a pre-existing liver problem may damage your liver further and worsen your condition.
Heart failure is a condition in which your heart muscle is unable to pump sufficient amount of blood throughout the body. Nodon Am (5/5 mg) Tablet should not be used in people having heart failure. This medicine weakens the contractions of your heart and slows down the heart rate. Using this medicine when you already have heart failure could lead to excessive lowering of blood pressure and reduced blood flow to the organs, which could be fatal.
Nodon Am (5/5 mg) Tablet is not recommended for use if you have any heart problems. This includes heart block greater than first degree (a condition where the heartbeats are slow or abnormal), cardiogenic shock (a condition where your heart can’t pump enough blood to your body), sick sinus syndrome (inability to create an adequate heart rate by the heart’s natural pacemaker), sinus bradycardia (slow heartbeat), etc. This medicine weakens the contractions of your heart and reduces your blood pressure. Using it while you have heart problems will worsen your condition.
Nodon Am (5/5 mg) Tablet is not recommended for use in people with lung problems such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, a condition where airflow from the lungs is obstructed) as this medicine has the potential to cause bronchospasm (narrowing of the airways in your lungs). Using this medicine while you have pre-existing lung problems can worsen your condition.

Coronary artery diseases
Nodon Am (5/5 mg) Tablet should be used with extreme caution if you have coronary artery diseases (a condition where the blood vessels of your heart are damaged, mainly due to build-up of plaque). It may weaken the contractions of your heart and slows down the heart rate, which may further depress cardiac output (amount of blood pumped by the heart in a minute) and blood pressure. Your doctor will suggest tests to closely monitor your heart function while you are on treatment with this medicine.
Nodon Am (5/5 mg) Tablet can interact with anaesthesia and excessively lower the blood pressure.

Abrupt withdrawal of Nodon Am (5/5 mg) Tablet can lead to thyrotoxicosis (an excess of thyroid hormone in the body) and thyroid storm (severe complications of untreated hyperthyroidism). To minimize this risk, your doctor will slowly stop this medicine by reducing the dose over a period of 1 to 2 weeks.
Peripheral vascular diseases
Nodon Am (5/5 mg) Tablet should be used with caution if you have peripheral vascular diseases (blood circulation problems) as it weakens the contractions of your heart and slows down the heart rate which may further depress cardiac output (amount of blood pumped by the heart in a minute) and blood pressure. Your doctor will suggest tests to regularly monitor your heart function while you are on this medication. He may also adjust the dose as necessary.
Nodon Am (5/5 mg) Tablet is not recommended for use if you have hypotension (low blood pressure) as it has the potential to lower your blood pressure even further. Also, if you have any condition that can cause volume depletion (excess loss of salt and fluid from the body due to severe vomiting, diarrhoea, burns, kidney problems) or if you are being treated with high doses of diuretics (medicines that increase the production of urine), avoid taking this tablet as it will worsen your condition further.
Impaired liver function
Nodon Am (5/5 mg) Tablet should be used with caution if you have severe liver damages. This medicine is absorbed in the liver. Using it while your liver is already damaged will lead to the accumulation of this medicine inside your liver. This could increase the risk of hepatotoxicity (toxic liver damage) which could lead to liver failure as well.
Use in children
Nodon Am (5/5 mg) Tablet is not recommended for use in children below 18 years of age since the safety and efficacy of use are not clinically established.
Impaired kidney function
