Labetalol - Overview
Labetalol is a medication sometimes prescribed to people to help them manage their hypertension. People who might need a labetalol HCl medication prescription, including labetalol 200 mg and labetalol 100 mg tablets, can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe labetalol when appropriate to do so.
What Is Labetalol Used For?
Labetalol prescription medication, previously marketed under the brand name Trandate, is a medication sometimes prescribed to people who have hypertension. Labetalol is a type of drug that belongs to a class of medication known as alpha1-adrenergic and beta-adrenergic blockers. Because of this dual activity, labetalol is thought to work by reducing resistance in the blood vessels, partially through relaxing smooth muscle in the vasculature, and reducing heart rate. This dual activity is what makes labetalol different from more selective beta blockers such as atenolol (Tenormin), bisoprolol (Zebeta), metoprolol (Lopressor, Toprol) and nebivolol (Bystolic). Labetalol works better when used in conjunction with other lifestyle measures such as an improved diet and exercise.
Labetalol - Dosage and Cost
Labetalol is typically started at labetalol 100 mg twice per day although the starting regimen depends on the health characteristics of the patient and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. The dose of labetalol used may be titrated from there based on the response of the patient to the medication. Following oral administration, labetalol generally exhibits a half life of under 8 hours when given to healthy individuals. Labetalol is excreted in both the urine and the feces. Generic labetalol is affordable, costing approximately 30 cents or less at most pharmacies in the United States. Labetalol coupons are sometimes available from various sources and some insurance plans will cover the costs associated with labetalol, depending on why it was prescribed and the insurance coverage.
Can I Buy Labetalol Online?
Labetalol OTC is not available and one cannot just buy labetalol online as labetalol requires a prescription to be dispensed by a pharmacy in the United States. Because of this, the first step to getting a labetalol medication prescription is consulting a licensed medical provider. People who might need a labetalol prescription can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who, when appropriate, can prescribe labetalol HCl tablets.
Labetalol - Side Effects
Labetalol medication can cause adverse effects when used and labetalol's side effects should be discussed with a qualified medical practitioner while using the medication. Side effects that can result from labetalol HCl use include low blood pressure, fatigue, headache, nausea, vomiting, heartburn, dizziness and drowsiness. People with liver problems or certain types of heart conditions should not use labetalol. Labetalol prescription tablets can interact with other drugs and care should be taken when prescribed as part of a wider medication regimen. Labetalol medication and alcohol should not be used together. People with a known hypersensitivity to labetalol prescription medication or related drugs should not use labetalol prescription tablets.
