PATIENT INFORMATION

Patients, especially those with evidence of coronary artery insufficiency, should be warned against interruption or discontinuation of Kerlone (betaxolol hydrochloride) therapy without the physician's advice.

Although cardiac failure rarely occurs in appropriately selected patients, patients being treated with beta-adrenergic blocking agents should be advised to consult a physician at the first sign or symptom of failure.

Patients should know how they react to this medicine before they operate automobiles and machinery or engage in other tasks requiring alertness. Patients should contact their physician if any difficulty in breathing occurs, and before surgery of any type. Patients should inform their physicians, ophthalmologists, or dentists that they are taking Kerlone (betaxolol hydrochloride) . Patients with diabetes should be warned that beta-blockers may mask tachycardia occurring with hypoglycemia.
