Nadolol is a beta blocker medication that is sometimes prescribed to help lower blood pressure and reduce chest pain related to high blood pressure. It may be prescribed by itself or in conjunction with other blood pressure medications. This medication slows the heart rate and relaxes blood vessels in order to reduce blood pressure and chest pain.
It’s important not to suddenly stop taking this medication. Sudden withdrawal from the medication can cause fatal heart attacks. Instead, patients should gradually lower the dose they take over the course of several weeks if they want to come off the medication.
This medication can lower blood pressure too much, especially if taken in conjunction with other medications. Get emergency medical treatment if you feel unusually dizzy or drowsy after taking this medication.
