Category: Blood Pressure



Labetalol Overview

Labetalol is a medication used to treat high blood pressure.[1] It can be given intravenously in severe hypertensive situations, or by mouth for long term hypertension management.[2] Its dose and use is limited by its main side effect—postural hypotension, where there is a substantial drop in blood pressure when standing up.[3][4] Labetalol's dual alpha and beta adrenergic antagonism has different physiological effects in s...

Atenolol versus Labetalol

I want to know if it would be ok to take atenolol in place of the labetalol I've been taking, but ran out of? ## Hi Kerri, Both Atenolol and Labetalol are in the same drug class called Beta-blockers which are marketed for use in treating high blood pressure. According to medlineplus.gov, both medications work by relaxing blood vessels and slowing heart rate to improve blood flow and decrease blood pressure. - Atenolol reportedly has an estimated elimination half-life of 6-7 hours (taken orally in tablet form) - Labetalol reportedly has an estimated elimination half-life of 6-8 hours (taken orally in tablet form) What I don't know is how they compare to one another in terms of potency, efficacy, and dosing. So this particular aspect of things is probably something you'd want ...

Labetalol hcl

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 an...

watson 606

## found 2 white round pills say watson-606,,,some-one told me they were pain pillls,,,??/dont no--what are they thank you ## Watson lists this tablet as containing 200mgs of Labetalol, which is used to treat high blood pressure, and certain cardiac conditions. I can add extra confirmation to this, because I just took one less than hour ago, as prescribed, for my blood pressure and cardiac condition. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. It is not used to treat pain. Is there anything else I can help with?

The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Some of them include Metoprolol, Lisinopril, Candesartan, and Losartan.

labetalol side effects

Is Labetalol HCL compatible with Prednisone 10 mg + Chlorthalidone 10 mgm + Duloxetine 60 mgm + Amlodipine? My husband has been taking these drugs and has begun to hallucinate! ## Hello, Joanie! How is your husband doing? Has there been any change? It is difficult to say what might be cause it, it could be due to one of these medications, or it may be unrelated. According to NIH reports, hallucinations can occur for many different reasons. Has his doctor been consulted? Having this checked out would be the best way to get to the root of the problem. ## My husband is doing slightly better...thanks for asking! I cut back on the Labetalol and at the doctor's suggestion, stopped his Duloxetine for three days. We will see if this stops the hallucinations ans the night restlessness.

Please identify watson 606

What is a white round pill labeled watson 606 ## Hello, Jesse! How are you? Watson lists this tablet as containing 200mgs of Labetalol and I can actually verify that, since I have a bottle right here and take 3 a day. LOL It is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and, as listed by the FDA, its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, increased urination and hypotension. It was prescribed for me, because I am very sensitive to many medications and this one is known to be very effective, without causing as many side effects. Is there anything else I can help with?

My husband takes this pill and he is a diabetic with kidney disease. This medicine has his legs and feet feeling cold all the time and he is in pain. What can he do to prevent this or help with the coldness? Also, is there another high blood pressure medication that he can take that will not cause these side effects and is safe to take with his diabetic medicine and want cause alot of harm to his kidneys? ## Hello, Jackie! How are you? What other medications does he take? I'm not saying that the Labetalol doesn't cause this, because it can, but it is very unusual. It's actually known to usually cause fewer side effects than most similar drugs. Has he consulted his doctor?
