• Pindolol, a nonselective β-adrenergic blocking drug, lowered systolic and diastolic BP equally well during once-daily and twice-daily dosage. Side effects were few. Absence of supine bradycardia distinguished this drug from other β-adrenergic blockers and likely was attributable to the agent's intrinsic sympathomimetic activity. Blood pressure variability was less during therapy. Automatic indirect BP monitoring reliably confirmed office and home BP recordings and indicated good control throughout waking and sleeping periods.
