Can You Get a Sectral Prescription Online?

Do you have high blood pressure or irregular heart rhythm? You may benefit from Sectral. You probably have a lot of questions about Sectral, like what is it, how does Sectral work, what are the potential benefits and side effects, and can you get a Sectral prescription online?

The short answer is yes, you can get a Sectral prescription online. But let’s talk more about Sectral and how can go about getting getting it online.

What is Sectral?

Sectral is the brand name for Acebutolol, which is a beta-blocker. Sectral, like other beta-blockers, treats high blood pressure (hypertension) and irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmia). High blood pressure can lead to heart attacks, strokes, and kidney problems, so beta-blockers like Sectral can help reduce those risks by lowering blood pressure.

How does Sectral work?

Beta-blockers like Sectral work by blocking things like epinephrine from acting on your heart and blood vessels. As a result, you benefit from lowered blood pressure, heart rate, and strain on the heart.

Sectral dosage and treatment

The initial dosage of Sectral is typically 400 mg taken once or twice a day. Maintenance dosages of Sectral may range from 200 mg to 1200 mg per day. Always take medications exactly as prescribed by your doctor to prevent taking too much or too little medication for your health conditions.

Benefits of Sectral

Sectral lowers blood pressure and helps keep your heart rhythm regular. As a result, the benefits of taking Sectral include a lower risk of heart attack, kidney problems, and stroke.

Side Effects of Sectral

Most side effects of Sectral are mild and go away with time. Severe allergic reactions or other side effects are possible, though. Potential side effects that you may experience with Sectral include:
• Lightheadedness
• Tiredness
• Upset stomach

Considerations and Precautions of Sectral

Sectral is generally considered safe, but it isn’t appropriate for everybody. You should always talk to your doctor about your medical conditions and every medication you take, including vitamins, supplements, and over the counter medications.

Sectral Interactions

Taking Sectral along with other medications can cause interactions which may be severe. Tell your doctor about all the medications you take, especially:

  • Fenoldopam (Corlopam)
  • Fingolimod
  • Clonidine
  • Epinephrine (Adrenaline, EpiPen)
  • Reserpine (Harmonyl)
  • Other beta-blockers
  • Diet aids
  • NSAIDS like naproxen (Aleve) or ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil)
  • Cough and cold products (especially decongestants)

Other Sectral Considerations

Sectral may not be safe if you have certain health conditions. Always share with your doctor all of your medical history, especially if you currently have or have had any of these conditions:

  • Severe heart failure
  • Fainting caused by a slow heartbeat
  • AV block (2nd or 3rd degree)
  • Peripheral vascular disease like Raynaud’s syndrome
  • A heart condition for which you take a diuretic (“water pill”) digoxin (digitalis)
  • Coronary artery disease (hardened arteries)
  • Thyroid disorder
  • History of allergies
  • Kidney or liver disease
  • Diabetes
  • Asthma, sleep apnea, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or other breathing disorder
  • History of heart failure
  • Mood or mental disorders (like depression or anxiety)
  • Myasthenia gravis

Sectral and Pregnancy or Breastfeeding

Sectral should only be taken during pregnancy if the benefits outweigh the risks because babies can be born with low birth weight, slow heartbeat, or low blood pressure if their mother took Sectral during the pregnancy.

Sectral can pass through breast milk, so talk to a doctor before taking Sectral while breastfeeding.

Can You Buy Sectral Online?

It’s important to be careful trying to buy Sectral online. Federal law requires people to talk to a doctor before getting Sectral (or any other prescription medication), and you must pick up the medication at a reputable pharmacy. You should be wary of any website that promises they can send you prescription medication from another country without speaking to a doctor.

Luckily, there is still a way to buy Sectral online. With telemedicine doctors like PlushCare, you can have a video or telephone appointment with a licensed doctor. If that doctor believes that you would benefit from Sectral, they can electronically send a prescription to your favorite pharmacy, where you pick it up when it’s ready.
