Canada Pharmacies Await Newly Approved Generic Labetalol from Gland Pharma

Last week, generic labetalol from Gland Pharma has been approved by the FDA. Labetalol is a drug used for treating hypertension. It is of special importance as a drug indicated for pregnancy induced hypertension. Nearly ten percent of pregnant women develop high blood pressure during their pregnancy. Though most of these women will deliver healthy babies without any serious problem, hypertension can be dangerous for the mother and the baby alike. Some pregnant women, about 6%, develop high blood pressure after 20 weeks of pregnancy, without presence of protein in urine, for no apparent reason.

This type of hypertension is called pregnancy induced hypertension or gestational hypertension. It may lead to more serious condition preeclampsia, hypertension in association with significant amounts of protein in the urine. Therefore the blood pressure has to be closely monitored and has to be kept under control during the pregnancy. The usually recommended preventive actions are taking less salt, drinking adequate amount of water (8glasses a day), avoiding alcohol, smoking, coffee and other drinks containing caffeine, taking rest lying in bed, regular light exercise and increasing protein and decreasing fat in the food. As many of the drugs used for lowering blood pressure affect the baby badly, following the above are very helpful.

Labetalol is one of the drugs that can be used without exposing the fetus to high risks. Other drugs used for treating gestational hypertension are methyldopa and hydralazine. Labetalol is marketed under the brand name Trandate.

A spokesperson for the leading Canada pharmacy, Big Mountain Drugs (BMD) said Our range of prescription drugs contain a wide selection of medications used in treating hypertension. Our hypertension drugs include labetalol (Trandate) and hydralzine (Apresoline) and methyldopa (Aldomet) that can be used for treating pregnancy induced hypertension. Cardene (Nicardipine), Lotrel (Amlodipine/Benazepril), Lotensin (Benazepril), Avalide (Irbesartan/HCTZ) and Cozaar (Losartan) are some other widely used hypertension drugs in our range of medicines.

We already have generics for Labetalol in our portfolio but if Gland Pharma were to enter Canada market, we will certainly seek to have the drug represented in our portfolio. Commented the spokesperson on the new drug approval.

Spokesperson continued Our mission is to provide safe, reliable and inexpensive medications to our valued customers. We achieve this by procuring medicines from reliable and reputed manufacturers worldwide.

In recent years, the popularity of Canada pharmacies has increased markedly because, of the staggeringly low prices being offered by them. The drug prices are low in the countries as Canada due to government regulated prices.
