Acebutolol can be taken with or without food, usually once or twice daily. The dosage of acebutolol should be reduced in patients with dysfunction of the kidneys or liver since kidney or liver disease reduce the elimination of acebutolol.

The use of beta-blockers together with fenoldopam (Corlopam), a drug used to manage severe high blood pressure, may result in unexpectedly low blood pressure since beta-adrenergic blocking drugs add to the blood pressure-lowering effects of fenoldopam. With concomitant use of clonidine (Catapres) and beta-adrenergic blocking drugs, severe high blood pressure may occur if patients abruptly discontinue the clonidine. Because of this effect, it is advisable to discontinue beta-adrenergic blocking drugs prior to starting clonidine.
