Lopressor is used for treating blood pressure, alone or along with other medicines; long-term treatments for chest pain; and reducing the probability of death as a result of cardiovascular disease in patients who've had heart disease.

It works by decreasing the work one's heart must do (reduces chest pain) along with the quantity of blood the heart pumps out (lowers hypertension). It is also accustomed to stabilize one's heart rhythm in conditions in which the guts is beating too fast or in an irregular rhythm.
Use Lopressor as directed because of your doctor.
