Apo Pindol Dosage

The recommended dose of Apo Pindol (Pindolol) ranges from 10 mg to 45 mg daily, depending on the needs of the person taking the medication. It should be taken with food.

For treatment of high blood pressure, the dose of Apo Pindol (Pindolol) is usually started at 5 mg twice daily and increased gradually until the best dose is found. When the dose is less than 30 mg per day, it is taken in 2 divided doses. Doses greater than 30 mg per day are taken in 3 divided doses.

For treatment of angina, the starting dose is 5 mg 3 times a day with food. If the desired response is not reached in 1 to 2 weeks, the dosage may be increased, up to a maximum of 40 mg per day.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Apo Pindol (Pindolol) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule.

If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Apo Pindol Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Apo Pindol (Pindolol).

Breathing problems: People with asthma and certain other breathing problems should, in general, not take a beta-blocker such as Apo Pindol (Pindolol). If you have these types of conditions and your doctor prescribed Apo Pindol (Pindolol) for you, it may be at a lower dose, and your doctor will monitor you regularly while you are taking Apo Pindol (Pindolol).

Congestive heart failure (CHF): Apo Pindol (Pindolol) may make heart failure worse. If you have CHF, discuss with your doctor how Apo Pindol (Pindolol) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Apo Pindol (Pindolol), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Diabetes: The signs of low blood sugar may not be as noticeable when taking Apo Pindol (Pindolol). If you have diabetes and take insulin or another medication that works by reducing the sugar in the blood, be cautious and monitor your blood sugar carefully while taking Apo Pindol (Pindolol).

Drowsiness/reduced alertness: Dizziness or fatigue may occur when starting treatment with Apo Pindol (Pindolol). This may impair your ability to drive or operate machinery. Exercise caution with these activities until you find out whether the medication affects you in this way.

Hyperthyroidism (high level of Thyroid hormones): Apo Pindol (Pindolol) may mask symptoms of high levels of thyroid in the body. People with hyperthyroidism should be cautious while taking Apo Pindol (Pindolol), as it may reduce the symptoms of this condition giving a false impression of improvement. Stopping Apo Pindol (Pindolol) suddenly could worsen this condition.

Liver disease: Liver disease or reduced liver function may cause Apo Pindol (Pindolol) to build up in the body, causing side effects. If you have liver problems, discuss with your doctor how Apo Pindol (Pindolol) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Apo Pindol (Pindolol), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Low Blood Pressure: Occasionally, blood pressure may drop too low after taking Apo Pindol (Pindolol), causing dizziness or lightheadedness. Move slowly when moving from a lying down or sitting position to a standing position to prevent dizziness, especially when you first start taking Apo Pindol (Pindolol).

Psoriasis: Apo Pindol (Pindolol) and other beta-blockers may aggravate or worsen psoriasis. If you have psoriasis, discuss with your doctor how Apo Pindol (Pindolol) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Apo Pindol (Pindolol), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Severe allergies: People with allergies severe enough to cause Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) (a severe allergic reaction where swelling of the face, lips, and throat makes it difficult to breathe) should talk to their doctor about what to do if they have an allergic reaction. Apo Pindol (Pindolol) may make it more difficult to treat their allergic reaction with Epinephrine.

Skin conditions: Various skin rashes and dry eyes have been reported with use of Apo Pindol (Pindolol).

Stopping usage: Apo Pindol (Pindolol) should not be stopped suddenly by those who are taking it to treat angina. There have been reports of severe worsening of angina, and of Heart Attack or abnormal heart rhythms occurring in people with angina who have stopped Apo Pindol (Pindolol) abruptly.

Surgery: If you are scheduled for surgery, inform all doctors involved in your care that you are taking Apo Pindol (Pindolol).
