  • Acebutolol Overview

    Acebutolol is used to treat high blood pressure and irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Treating irregular heartbeat helps the heart work better and with less strain. Irregular heartbeats can be serious and may sometimes even lead to a heart attack. Acebutolol belongs to a class of drugs known as beta blockers. It works by blocking the action of certain natural substances in your body, such as epinephrine, on the heart and blood vessels. This effect lowers heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on the heart.
