I started with 100 mg twice per day of labetalol HCl. I immediately became so dry that I couldn't talk without a bottle of water. My doctor cut dosage in half and added Benicar to the cocktail. I had an allergic reaction to benicar. It was replaced with 40 mgs. of lisinapril. Not strong enough. Need any suggestions.

Hello, Belle! How are you?

The dry mouth from the Labetalol will usually wear off after a month or so, once your body gets used to the medication. It annoyed me, at first, too. However, having been on it for awhile now, it is no longer a problem, at all. So, if it was helping your blood pressure, then you might want to go back to a higher dose of it and just wait it out for awhile.

Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and hypotension.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I've been taking the Watson Labetalol 200mg 2x a day for about 12 years and it worked perfectly. Due to insurance changing where we can get Rx's, I just started taking the CL 38 Labetalol 200mg. The new Rx is not as effective and my BP has been up and my face gets noticeably red. Is it possible to have a different effect from the "same" drug, but different suppliers?

I am on amlodipine 10mg, moduretic and 200mg of labetalol twice daily. My blood pressure is controlled for most of the day, then begins to rise rapidly about 2 hours before my next dosage. The other medication doesn't seem to have any effect and whenever I miss a dosage of the labetalol my blood pressure begins to rise rapidly. Very worried.
