Visken How to Take

Visken (Pindolol) belongs to the class of medications called beta-blockers. It is used to treat high blood pressure and to prevent Angina (chest pain). For treatment of high blood pressure, Visken (Pindolol) may be used alone or in combination with other medications that reduce high blood pressure, particularly thiazide diuretics (water pills). Visken (Pindolol) works by decreasing the demands on the heart.

Visken (Pindolol) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Visken (Pindolol) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Visken (Pindolol) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Visken (Pindolol) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Visken (Pindolol), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Visken (Pindolol) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Visken (Pindolol) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Visken (Pindolol) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Visken Dosage

The recommended dose of Visken (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 Visken (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 Visken (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 it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Do not stop taking Visken (Pindolol) without first talking with your doctor. Stopping the medication suddenly after you have been taking it for a while may cause unpleasant and potentially harmful effects.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Visken Precautions

There may be an interaction between Visken (Pindolol) and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Visken (Pindolol). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Visken 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 Visken (Pindolol).

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

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

Diabetes: The signs of low blood sugar may not be as noticeable when taking Visken (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 Visken (Pindolol).

Drowsiness/reduced alertness: Dizziness or fatigue may occur when starting treatment with Visken (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): Visken (Pindolol) may mask symptoms of high levels of thyroid in the body. People with hyperthyroidism should be cautious while taking Visken (Pindolol), as it may reduce the symptoms of this condition giving a false impression of improvement. Stopping Visken (Pindolol) suddenly could worsen this condition.

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

Low Blood Pressure: Occasionally, blood pressure may drop too low after taking Visken (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 Visken (Pindolol).

Psoriasis: Visken (Pindolol) and other beta-blockers may aggravate or worsen psoriasis. If you have psoriasis, discuss with your doctor how Visken (Pindolol) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Visken (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. Visken (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 Visken (Pindolol).

Stopping usage: Visken (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 Visken (Pindolol) abruptly.

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

Pregnancy: The safety of Visken (Pindolol) for use by pregnant women has not been established. It should not be taken by pregnant women unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Visken (Pindolol), contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: Visken (Pindolol) passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Visken (Pindolol), it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Children: The safety and effectiveness of using Visken (Pindolol) have not been established for children.
