Uses

Acebutolol is used to treat high blood pressure. Acebutolol also is used to treat an irregular heartbeat. Acebutolol is in a class of medications called beta blockers. It works by relaxing blood vessels and slowing heart rate to improve blood flow and decrease blood pressure.

Acebutolol is also used sometimes to treat chest pain (angina). Talk to your doctor about the possible risks of using this medication for your condition.

High blood pressure is a common condition and when not treated, can cause damage to the brain, heart, blood vessels, kidneys and other parts of the body. Damage to these organs may cause heart disease, a heart attack, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure, loss of vision, and other problems. In addition to taking medication, making lifestyle changes will also help to control your blood pressure. These changes include eating a diet that is low in fat and salt, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising at least 30 minutes most days, not smoking, and using alcohol in moderation.

Usage

Acebutolol comes as a capsule to take by mouth. It usually is taken once or twice a day. To help you remember to take acebutolol, take it around the same time(s) every day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take acebutolol exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

Acebutolol controls your condition but does not cure it. Continue to take acebutolol even if you feel well. Do not stop taking acebutolol without talking to your doctor. If you suddenly stop taking acebutolol, you may experience serious heart problems such as angina (chest pain) or heart attack.
