 Pindolol Drug Information

Pindolol belongs to a group of drugs called beta-blockers that work on the heart and blood vessels. Pindolol slows down heart activity by stopping the transmission of messages from certain nerves to the heart. It does this by blocking small areas (called beta-adrenergic receptors) where messages are received by your heart. As a result, your heart rate will be slower and less intense. Blood pressure in the blood vessels decreases, making it easier to pump blood around the body. Pindolol is prescribed for you when your blood pressure is too high or if you have angina or an arrhythmia in which your heart is not working properly, and it is helpful for you in these situations. Because your heart uses less energy when you take this medicine, Pindolol helps reduce chest pain if you have angina.

Pindolol is also available in combination with diuretics ("water pills"); These combination pills (Viskaldix) are used only to treat high blood pressure.
