Nadolol is a prescription drug indicated for treatment of high blood pressure. Nadolol may also be used to prevent angina or chest pain. Nadolol belongs to a class of medicines known as beta-blockers. Nadolol helps in relaxing blood vessels and slows heart rate thereby improving flow of blood and reducing blood pressure. Nadolol is a medicine that is used for a long-term management of chest pain (angina). It is a beta-blocker medicine that can also be used as a treatment for high blood pressure. It works by slowing down the heartbeat thus decreasing the amount of blood pumped. This leads to the control and treatment of the high blood pressure. Chest pains are also known to be caused by narrowing of the arteries. Nadolol works by removing the cholesterol in the arteries to increase the diameter to allow for more blood flow and also reduce the high pressure subjected to the arteries. This is how angina gets treated. If you are allergic to some of the ingredients forming Nadolol, do not take it. If you have asthma, slow heartbeat or uncontrolled heart fail, avoid this medicine.
