About Trandate (labetalol) 

Trandate is considered a beta blocker. As with other beta blockers, labetalol works by slowing the heart rate and relaxing blood vessels. By lowering blood pressure and improving blood flow, Trandate helps lower your risk of heart attacks and stroke.

Some conditions that Trandate is known to treat include high blood pressure (hypertension). Trandate is available only by prescription. It is available in a generic formulation as well as under different brand names, including Normodyne. 

Trandate may be prescribed as an oral tablet, or intravenous (IV) solution, which can only be administered in a hospital setting. It’s always important to follow the specific instructions on your prescription, as they can vary based on the formulation and dosage that you are prescribed.

If you're prescribed Trandate, be sure to complete the full course of the beta blocker unless your doctor specifically tells you to stop. If you don’t complete your prescription, the beta blocker may not fully treat your high blood pressure.

Trandate side effects

  • The side effects associated with taking Trandate are typically mild. Most Trandate side effects are associated with drowsiness.

Some potential side effects you could experience with labetalol include:

    • Nausea, vomiting, or upset stomach

    • Dizziness, drowsiness, and tiredness

    • Decreased sexual ability, such as erectile dysfunction

    • Sudden warmth, redness, or sweating

    • Tingly feeling in your scalp

    Other side effects, which are less common but might be more severe, could include:

    • Feeling light-headed, like you might pass out

    • Shortness of breath, swelling, or rapid weight gain

    • Severe headache, blurred vision, or pain in your ears

    • Allergic reactions

    Tell your doctor if you notice any of these side effects, or if you develop any other new or concerning symptoms. The use of Trandate in children under age 18 is not recommended.

How to take Trandate

Your pharmacist will provide you with instructions on how to take your Trandate prescription. Be sure to read your prescription label and follow the instructions. Call your doctor or pharmacy if you have any questions.

Trandate can come in different forms and doses, so be sure to follow the specific instructions on your prescription. The usual starting oral dose is 100 mg twice per day. For most people, the dosage will be increased every 2–3 days until they reach a good maintenance dosage, which is usually 200–400 mg twice per day. You may need to have your blood pressure monitored until an appropriate dosage is reached.
