Atenolol

Atenolol

Atenolol is a prescription medicine used for the treatment of high blood pressure. Additionally, it can be taken for chest pain that's related to coronary artery disease. There is a good chance Atenolol will need to be taken all the time by the patient.
Synonyms: Tenormin

Atenolol (tenormin) is classified as a beta-adrenergic blocking agent. By blocking the stimulating of nerves in the sympathetic nervous system, it decreases the abnormally high heart rate and lowers blood pressure. Therefore, Atenolol should be prescribed only for patients with high blood pressure and chest pain. It also proved useful in treating heart attacks and tachycardia, as well as to prevent migraine headache and treat specific types of tremors. Atenolol 25 mg, 50 mg and 100 mg are the most commonly used doses of the medicine. The choice of doses allows choosing a suitable one for every patient without any side effects experienced in the course of it. When you buy Atenolol (tenormin) online, you may want to start with the 25 mg dose and see if it helps. The general advice is always to take the minimal efficient dose. So if Atenolol 25 mg works for you, there is no reason to take tenormin 50 mg or 100 mg. Atenolol purchased online will help you in the same way brand name Atenolol would, because both contain the same amount of the active ingredient tenormin. Because of that fact, you can buy Atenolol online without being worried about any aspects of your treatment. It's always best to take Atenolol before having a meal (half in hour in advance) or at bedtime, unless directed otherwise. The usual dose is 50 mg Atenolol or 100 mg taken once a day. Atenolol should not be given to pregnant women, as it can affect the growth of the unborn baby and cause other problems.

Side Effects

Atenolol is well tolerated by most patients, with only a few percent of them being affected by minor side effects. Some of the side effects possible in certain patients include lightheadedness, constipation, diarrhea, insomnia, nausea, sore throat and abdominal cramps. In most cases, there is no need to report those side effects or stop the treatment. You do need to call your doctor if any of the side effects you developed persist or get bothersome.
