What is labetalol?

Trandate 100 mg Tab
Drug Name: LABETALOL-ORAL
Other Brand Names: Normodyne, Trandate
Uses: Labetalol is used with or without other medications to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This medication is both an alpha blocker and beta blocker. It works by blocking the action of certain natural chemicals in your body such as epinephrine on the heart and blood vessels. This effect lowers the heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on the heart.
