Frequently asked questions about pindolol

Pindolol is a prescription beta-blocker used to treat several conditions, such as high blood pressure and angina. It works by blocking the effects of certain hormones on the heart and blood vessels; due to these effects, it is also FDA-approved for the treatment of hyperthyroidism. Common side effects include lightheadedness, dizziness, tiredness, nausea, and diarrhea.

Although the brand name for pindolol, Visken, has been discontinued in the U.S., generic forms are still available and are prescribed in the form of an oral tablet.

Pindolol is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), chest pain (angina), and other conditions related to the heart and circulation. It is important to note that pindolol can only control high blood pressure, not cure it.

High blood pressure can damage vital organs, including the heart, brain, and kidneys. Damage to these organs can lead to serious health problems, such as heart attacks, vision loss, or strokes, so proper management of hypertension is critical. It is typically suggested that pindolol be used along with other lifestyle changes such as a low-fat, low-sodium diet and exercise in order to keep your blood pressure under control.

Pindolol belongs to a class of medications that are known as beta-blockers. It works by blocking certain hormones (such as epinephrine) that can cause the heart and other parts of the body to work harder. As a result, your blood vessels relax and your heart beats slower and decreases your blood pressure, which increases the amount of blood and oxygen getting to your heart.

Common side effects of pindolol include:

  • dizziness or lightheadedness
  • excessive tiredness
  • difficulty sleeping
  • upset stomach
  • heartburn
  • cold hands or feet
  • muscle or joint pain

This is not a complete list of adverse effects – though these are among the most common. Seek medical attention right away if you experience any of the following symptoms while taking pindolol:

  • difficulty breathing
  • sore throat and fever
  • unusual bleeding
  • swelling of the feet or hands
  • weight gain
  • chest pain
  • slow, irregular heartbeat

As with all prescription medication, be sure to inform the prescribing doctor about any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with and any medication/ supplements you are currently taking before starting treatment with pindolol. Pindolol can interact with other forms of medication and substances, causing potentially serious side effects.

If you are having surgery, you should let any healthcare professionals who are treating you know that you are taking pindolol.

In addition, let your doctor know if you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant before starting treatment with this medication.

Pindolol comes in the form of an oral tablet which is typically taken twice per day. However, you should take the medication exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider. Do not discontinue or increase your dosage of pindolol without consulting with your provider first. If you begin to experience adverse side effects while taking this medication, like those listed above, inform your provider right away.

Pindolol should be stored in a closed container at room temperature, away from extreme heat, extreme cold, moisture, and direct light, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Pindolol is currently only available via prescription. This means the use of this drug must be authorized by a licensed health care provider.
