Long-term experience with nadolol in treatment of hypertension and angina pectoris.


Two-hundred ninety-one patients with hypertension and 313 patients with angina pectoris were enrolled and treated with nadolol for up to 2 years. The efficacy of nadolol in hypertension and angina was maintained over the 2-year period. Discontinuation because of an adverse reaction occurred with 8.3% of the hypertensive patients and 8.6% of the angina patients. The observed reactions were typical of those which occur with beta-blocking drugs. Serum creatinine levels fell significantly (p less than 0.05) after 12 months of treatment for both the angina and hypertensive patients. After 24 months of treatment the serum creatinine levels had decreased 20% from baseline (p less than 0.001). Blood urea nitrogen levels fell in the angina patients after 12 months of treatment but not in the hypertensive patients. Nadolol is safe and effective for the long-term treatment of both hypertension and angina. Renal function, as measured by serum creatinine levels, improved with long-term treatment.
