MedKoo CAT#: 318083

CAS#: 32780-64-6 (HCl)

Description: Labetalol is a mixed alpha/beta adrenergic antagonist that is used to treat high blood pressure. It can be given intravenously in severe hypertensive situations, or by mouth for long term hypertension management. Studies suggest that the pharmacokinetics of labetalol are significantly affected by the common CYP2C19 polymorphisms.
