In-Hospital Treatment for Hypertension with Trandate Injection

Trandate Injection or Labetalol generic is a beta blocker that is administered intravenously by a healthcare professional to patients that have just had a heart attack and require immediate attention to lower their blood pressure to avoid a second attack, and for pregnant women with gestational hypertension to reduce their risk of eclampsia. Beta blockers are usually not recommended during the first trimester of a pregnancy to treat gestational hypertension, which does not usually occur that early in the pregnancy. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Beta Blockers Work to Lower Blood Pressure

Once the Trandate Injection is administered, the active ingredient called Labetalol will find its way to block the effects of the adrenaline and noradrenaline hormones which results in your heart rate slowing down and a reduction in the force of blood being pumped to other organs and tissue. Beta blockers also prevent your kidneys from producing the angiotensin II hormone so the muscles that surround your blood vessels relax and a proper flow of blood around your body is restored.

Who is at Risk for Hypertension?

Risk factors for being diagnosed with high blood pressure include your age, race, being overweight, unhealthy eating habits, smoking, inactivity, high alcohol consumption, stress, and certain chronic conditions such as sleep apnea, kidney disease, or diabetes. Hypertension, unless it is severe, has no symptoms to alert you that something is wrong. Usually the first you hear you have hypertension is during a routine physical exam. Improving your lifestyle helps to reduce your risk of a heart attack or stroke from hypertension, but you may still need to take oral medications long-term to avoid a possible trip to emergency.

Before the Administration of a Trandate Injection

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or may be pregnant before the Trandate Injection if your hypertension is not gestational. Describe other medical conditions or allergies you have to your doctor and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements, to determine if the Trandate Injection is right for your situation.

Important Information About Trandate Injection

Expect to be monitored during your stay to lower your blood pressure with Trandate Injection as dosages may require adjustments depending on how fast your pressure is coming down. If the severity of your blood pressure is a danger, you may be given an intravenous injection directly into a vein or if you are not in immediate trouble, Labetalol may be slowly infused through an IV catheter as a drip that can be adjusted. You may be sent home with a prescription for oral meds to maintain a safe pressure.
