Kerlone Drug Information

If you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, your healthcare provider may recommend a beta blocker called Kerlone® (betaxolol hydrochloride). Clinical studies show that taking Kerlone once a day can effectively lower blood pressure for a full 24 hours. This prescription drug is approved to be used alone or in combination with other blood pressure medications.
 
Kerlone comes in tablet form and is taken by mouth, typically once a day. As a beta blocker, it works to lower blood pressure by blocking beta-1 receptors in the body. Though generally well tolerated, side effects are possible and may include nausea, slow heart rate, and fatigue.
 
Before using Kerlone, make sure your healthcare provider has up-to-date information on any other drugs you are taking, including vitamins and supplements, as well as any allergies you may have, including to medications, foods, dyes, or preservatives. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you have kidney disease, diabetes, or angina.
