Trandate is a drug which is used for treating high blood pressure. It is related to carvedilol (Coreg). Nerves that are part of the adrenergic nervous system travel to most arteries where they release an adrenergic chemical norepinephrine. The norepinephrine attaches to receptors on the muscles of the arteries and causes the muscles to contract, narrowing the arteries, and increasing the blood pressure. Trandate blocks receptors of the adrenergic nervous system. When Trandate attaches to and blocks the receptors, the arterial muscles relax, and the arteries expand, resulting in a fall in blood pressure. Generic name of Trandate is Labetalol. Trandate is also known as Labetalol, Normodyne. Brand name of Trandate is Trandate.
