    One of the best beta blockers with the least side effects. It is great for blood pressure and heart rate control. This is a true beta-blocker with the relaxing and anti-anxiety qualities of PROPRANOL and the exact profile of Metoprolol/TOPROL, but without some of the side effects. One of the problems with this medication is the recent recall of the generic KERLONE known as BETAXOLOL. The medication was unavailable for a long time and this made many switch to another medication/beta blocker. Luckily KERLONE is avaliable once again. After the recall I would probably want to avoid the generic BETAXOLOL.Then again it may have improved after the FDA recall and publicity. For all HBP beta blocker users with side effects it's definitely worth giving KERLONE a try. You don't have much to lose.

    I have been taking this med for 15 years & it keeps my B/P right in line, but I only take 5mg or 1/2 of lowest dosage made.

    I have been taking kerlone for mvp for many years, and have been extremely satisfied. The only problem that I have is the dosage. I only need to take 5mg a day, so I must cut the 10mg pill in half.

    After taking this medicine for approx 15 years with good results, Medco informed me that it has been recalled and is no longer available? No reason given. Rite Aid confirmed this recall.
