Product Description

Trandate is a trade name for Labetalol, a nonselective alpha and beta adrenergic antagonist used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) in adults. Trandate is available by physician prescription.

 

Drug Information

 

Adrenergic receptor blocking agents like Labetalol, the active ingredient of Trandate, work by inhibiting norepinephrine (noradrenaline) hormone from reaching the walls of smaller blood vessels. This action leads to the relaxing of smooth muscles in blood vessel walls, which dilates small arteries and veins allowing blood to flow smoother, relieving elevated pressure.

 

four_dot_bullet_red As an alpha blocker, Labetalol can relax muscles other than blood vessels all over the body. Therefore, the drug is sometimes prescribed to make urination easy, especially for elderly men with prostate complications.

 

four_dot_bullet_red As a beta blocker, Labetalol can directly affect the muscles of the heart to reduce rate, beat strength and overall strain. Therefore, Labetalol is sometimes prescribed to treat chest pain (angina).

 

Labetalol may be prescribed for a number of conditions other than hypertension, including, but not limited to, arrhythmia, glaucoma, migraines, benign prostatic hyperplasia, Raynaud’s disease, scleroderma and pheochromocytoma.

 

Trandate tablets are available in 100 mg, 200 mg, and 300 mg doses.

 

Inactive ingredients of Trandate include lactose, pregelatinized corn starch, magnesium stearate, titanium dioxide, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, (in 200 mg tablet) sodium benzoate and (in 100 mg tablet) talc.

 

Dosage

 

Trandate dosage will vary as per physician recommendation, age, severity of the condition and response to the treatment. The dosage prescribed by a physician should be followed exactly as instructed.

 

four_dot_bullet_red Trandate tablets must be consumed orally, usually prescribed to be taken twice a day.
