Nadolol 20 mg Tablets
Nadolol (Corgard®) is a prescription medicine licensed for the treatment of high blood pressure and angina (chest pain due to inadequate blood supply to the heart). It comes in tablet form and is typically taken once a day. Nadolol is available in three different strengths, including:
- 20 mg nadolol tablets
- 40 mg nadolol tablets
- 80 mg nadolol tablets.
Although nadolol does not cure high blood pressure or angina, it can be used to control the condition. By blocking beta receptors in various places within the body, the medication can help decrease heart rate, blood pressure, and the workload of the heart. This action allows the heart to require less blood and oxygen to work properly.
As with any medicine, nadolol may cause side effects. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
Some of the most common side effects include, but are not limited to:
- Slow heart rate (bradycardia)
- Cold, numb, and pale fingers and toes
