What Is Labetalol?

Labetalol is a type of medicine known as a beta blocker, which helps to prevent high blood pressure (including during pregnancy). It helps your heart to pump blood around your body by lowering your heart rate.

Labetalol is most commonly available in tablet form. The medicine is often a long-term treatment for high blood pressure but may be temporary if you have high blood pressure due to pregnancy.

How Does Labetalol Work?

Your heart has two types of receptors: alpha receptors and beta receptors. Your alpha receptors control how your blood vessels contract, while your beta receptors manage your heart rate and how hard your heart has to work to pump blood around the body. Labetalol is a positive ‘blocker’ to both these receptors in the body, helping your blood vessels relax and your heart rate slow.

When your blood vessels relax, your blood pressure lowers as your heart works less hard to force blood and oxygen through the vessels. Labetalol also helps the vessels in your lungs relax.

What Is Labetalol Used For?

Labetalol is used to treat high blood pressure and is suitable for treating pregnant individuals who may not be able to take other forms of medicine. It reduces the risk of future heart attacks, heart disease, heart failure, or strokes, although it is not recommended for individuals who have recently had a heart attack or existing heart failure. 

What Are The Side Effects Of Labetalol?

Labetalol might have minor side effects that disappear as you get used to the medication. 

Some initial side effects might include:

  • Dizziness and feelings of nausea
  • Tiredness or weakness
  • Feelings of coldness in your fingers or toes
  • Stomach pains or cramps
  • Headaches
  • Diarrhea.

These symptoms should disappear on their own after a few days. Seek medical attention if they worsen or persist after your first few days of taking Labetalol.

Please call your doctor immediately if you experience any of the following extremely rare symptoms:

  • Difficulty breathing or a dry cough that worsens during exercise
  • Swollen legs or ankles
  • An irregular heartbeat
  • Yellow skin or eyes
  • Darker urine or paler feces
  • Unexplained bruising.

If you have liver or kidney problems, a slow heart rate, or low blood pressure, you cannot take Labetalol. You might also be unable to take Labetalol if you have asthma or existing lung conditions. Ensure you inform your doctor of any allergies or other medications before taking Labetalol.

The list of side effects listed above is not a comprehensive list – please consult your doctor or pharmacist for further information before taking the medication.

How to Take Labetalol?

You will usually start with a lower dosage of Labetalol, and your doctor will build it up over time until you find a dose that works for you. It is recommended to take it with food and space your doses throughout your waking day. Make sure you use water or juice to help take the tablet. Unless you are on Labetalol due to pregnancy, Labetalol treatment is usually a long-term treatment.

If you experience any side effects it’s important to contact your doctor. In some cases, you may need to stop taking Labetalol immediately and seek a different form of treatment.

It is important to take the medication exactly as directed by your healthcare provider.

What to Avoid While Taking Labetalol?

There are several things that should be avoided while taking Labetalol. In general, you should avoid anything that can lower your blood pressure as this enhances the side effects of Labetalol.

A good example would be alcohol, which can lower your blood pressure even further and exacerbate any dizziness or lightheadedness.

Also, certain medications, such as antidepressants, diuretics, other beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors, and NSAIDs (like ibuprofen) should be avoided.

Other things to avoid:

  • Operating heavy machinery or driving until you know how the medication affects you.
  • Stopping or changing your Labetalol dosage without consulting your doctor.
  • Taking other medications without consulting a healthcare provider.
  • Caffeine and nicotine should also be avoided as these can interfere with the effectiveness of Labetalol.

The list above is not exhaustive and other activities, medications, and substances may interact with Labetalol.

Make sure to talk to your doctor for more information about the precautions you should be taking and the potential side effects of Labetalol.

What Is the Typical Dosage for Labetalol?

The typical starting dose of Labetalol is 100 mg twice daily. This dose may be increased depending on your individual needs and how well it works for you.

Make sure not to increase your dosage without consulting a doctor first, as this could make the side effects more severe.
