   Acebutolol

Acebutolol
Oral


Acebutolol is used alone or with other medications to treat high blood pressure and irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia). Lowering high blood pressure prevents strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Treating irregular heartbeat helps the heart to work better with less strain. Irregular heart beats can be serious and sometimes lead to heart attacks, which may be fatal.This medication belongs to a class of medications called beta-blockers. It works by blocking the action of certain natural chemicals (such as adrenaline and epinephrine) that affect the heart and blood vessels, resulting in a lowering of heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on the heart.This drug is also used for a certain type of chest pain (angina). It can decrease your need for nitrate drugs and improve your ability to exercise by preventing the heart from working too hard. It can also improve heart failure by decreasing the amount of work your heart needs to do. Your doctor may also use this medication to treat other conditions.
