Uses of Enol
It is prescribed for:
- Hypertension (High blood pressure)
- Coronary heart disease
- Angina pectoris (Chest pain)
How does Enol work?
- Enol being a beta-blocker, reduces blood pressure primarily by decreasing cardiac output
- Enol keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which decreases blood pressure and increases blood flow
- It increases the release of nitric oxide which produces dilatation of blood vessels and thereby improves blood flow. It also reduces heart rate without improving maximal exercise tolerance
- It may also decrease sympathetic outflow from the central nervous system (CNS) and inhibit the release of renin from the kidneys, thus decreasing the formation of angiotensin II and the secretion of aldosterone

Shows Effects / Results in
- Enol blocks beta-1 receptors, which are present in heart which eventually prevents the action of nerve chemicals adrenaline and noradrenaline on the heart
- As a result, heart beats at a slower rate and with lesser force, and pumps out lesser blood into blood vessels
- This action of Enol reduces blood pressure in hypertensive patients
- Since the heart treated with Enol beats slowly and with less force, it uses lesser energy thus relieving pain in angina and also reduces the risk of heart attack
