Nadolol 80 mg Tablets

Nadolol (Corgard®) is a prescription medication approved to treat high blood pressure (known medically as hypertension) and angina (chest pain due to inadequate blood supply to the heart). It comes in tablet form and is available in three different strengths, including:
  • 20 mg nadolol tablets
  • 40 mg nadolol tablets
  • 80 mg nadolol tablets.
Nadolol belongs to a group of drugs called beta-adrenergic blocking agents, more often known as beta blockers. As the name implies, these medications block beta receptors in the body. Beta receptors are located in a number of places within the body, including the heart and blood vessels. Stress hormones (such as adrenaline) bind to these receptors and cause certain reactions in the body, such as:
By blocking beta receptors, nadolol causes the reverse effect of stress hormones. It decreases the heart rate, blood pressure, and the workload of the heart. This means that the heart requires less blood and oxygen to work properly.
