INTRODUCTION

LABEBET 200MG contains Labetalol which belongs to a group of medicines known as beta-blockers. It is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure during pregnancy in women). It also used to treat angina (pain in the chest, arms, shoulders or neck caused by effort, stress or cold weather) in patients with high blood pressure.

High blood pressure usually occurs from blood pushing too hard against your blood vessels. Angina is pain or discomfort that keeps coming back when part of your heart does not get enough blood.  LABEBET 200MG works by causing the heart to beat slower and with less force and also widens the arteries in the body which helps to lower the pressure of blood.

High blood pressure often causes no obvious symptoms but if it is not treated it can damage blood vessels in the long-term. This can lead to heart attacks, kidney failure, stroke or blindness. Always take LABEBET 200MG exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Swallow the medicine whole with plenty of water. It should not be given to children. Do not drive or operate machines if you feel dizzy or tired while taking this medicine. Avoid drinking alcohol while taking this medicine, since it can make these side effects worse.
