How do you take this medication?
Labetalol is typically taken by mouth.
High blood pressure is a long-term (chronic) condition that can harm your organs. Medications for blood pressure are not a one-time cure. This medicine doesn't provide a complete cure for high blood pressure, so it's important to continue taking it, even if you start feeling better. If you stop taking it suddenly, this could cause dangerous problems, like heart attack or stroke. Follow your medical provider's instructions carefully.
What happens if I miss a dose?
If you miss a dose of your hypertension medicine, take it as soon as you remember. But if it’s almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose. Do not double the dose to catch up.
What happens if I take too much?
Taking too much of your beta blocker medication can lead to symptoms like a slow heart rate, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), low blood pressure, dizziness and difficulty breathing.
If you’ve taken too much Labetalol, call your healthcare provider or local poison control center (800-222-1222) immediately.
Can I get Labetalol online?
Yes! Just complete a Dr. B health questionnaire. A licensed medical provider will work with you to see if an online refill is appropriate.
