Ivytimol 0.25% Eye Drops is used alone or together with other medicines (such as hydrochlorothiazide) to treat high blood pressure (hypertension).
High blood pressure adds to the workload of the heart and arteries.
Ivytimol is also used after an acute heart attack to decrease its severity and prevent another heart attack. It may also be used to help prevent migraine headaches.
Ivytimol is a beta-blocker. It works by affecting the response to nerve impulses in certain parts of the body, like the heart. As a result, the heart beats slower and decreases the blood pressure. When the blood pressure is lowered, the amount of blood and oxygen is increased to the heart.
