Penbutolol Medication Information
Though not a cure for high blood pressure, penbutolol sulfate (Levatol®) has been shown to significantly reduce blood pressure in clinical studies. Penbutolol is a beta blocker medication that can be used by itself or in combination with other blood pressure medicines. Headache, dizziness, and fatigue are some of the most common side effects. However, most people are able to take it without any problems.
Penbutolol comes in the form of a tablet and is usually taken once a day. It's important to review penbutolol's safety information with your healthcare provider before starting treatment. This medication may not be suitable for everyone, so make sure your healthcare provider is aware if you have any other medical conditions, such as kidney disease, diabetes, or certain allergies, and if you are taking any other medications, including nonprescription drugs.
