|Drug Class: What is Inderal and why is it prescribed?|
Generic Inderal is in a class of drugs called beta-blockers. Beta-blockers affect the heart and circulatory system (arteries and veins).
Generic Inderal is prescribed to treat angina, mild to moderate high blood pressure (hypertension), irregular heartbeat (cardiac arrhythmias), hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (weakness of the heart muscle), heart attack, pheochromocytoma, tremors, and migraine headaches.
Generic Inderal may also be used for purposes other than those listed.
|Drug Mechanism: How does Inderal work?|
|Generic Inderal blocks nerve impulses to various parts of the body, which accounts for its many effects. For example, it slows the heart rate and force of the contraction (which helps lower blood pressure), decreases the hearts oxygen requirement (which helps prevent angina), and helps stabilize heart rhythm.
|Dosage: How should you take Inderal|
Therapeutic response to a given dosage varies between patients, therefore, dosage must be individually titrated and should be carefully monitored. In the treatment of hypertension, Generic Inderal may be started by administering the drug in 2 equal daily doses of 40 mg. This may be increased, if necessary, in one week, to 80 mg twice daily, before breakfast and at bedtime. If necessary, the drug may be increased to 160 mg twice daily. For most patients the dosage is within the range of 160 to 320 mg daily. A small number of patients may respond to 80 mg daily. Experience to date suggests that in some resistant patients increasing the dosage above 320 mg/day may have an additional effect. Doses above 320 mg/day should be given on a 3 or 4 times daily regimen.
The time course of full blood pressure response is variable. The antihypertensive effect will usually occur within 3 to 7 days after reaching the effective dose. The maximum decrease in blood pressure may occur 2 to 4 weeks after initiation of treatment.

Since blood pressure declines gradually, it may be several weeks before you get the full benefit of Generic Inderal; and you must continue taking it even if you are feeling well. Generic Inderal does not cure high blood pressure; it merely keeps it under control.
