Comparison of a once daily long-acting formulation of propranolol with conventional propranolol given twice daily in patients with mild to moderate hypertension.

Abstract

The effect of conventional propranolol tablets given twice daily has been compared with an equivalent dosage of a long-acting formulation of propranolol ('Inderal' LA)p given once daily in twenty-nine patients with mild to moderate hypertension. The study lasted 10 weeks. There was no significant difference in clinical response to the two treatments which were equally effective and well tolerated. A once daily dosage schedule should greatly aid patient compliance.
