Uses
Tenormin (Atenolol) is used to treat a variety of medical conditions. Its two main uses include the treatment of hypertension (more commonly referred to as high blood pressure) and the prevention of angina. This drug is a beta blocker, a type of medicine that works by blocking beta receptors in the heart, which causes the heart to beat more slowly, thereby leading to a reduction in high blood pressure. Another effect of this is that the heart uses less energy. Because of this, less oxygen is required by the heart, which makes this drug effective at preventing angina attacks. Other related conditions may sometimes be treated by this drug.

Dosage and Administration
Tenormin (Atenolol) is to be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Patients treating high blood pressure may require regular visits to the doctor to check their blood pressure. The most commonly prescribed dosage for high blood pressure is 50mg taken once per day, which your doctor may increase to 100mg once daily if an adequate response to treatment is not noticed after 1 to 2 weeks. Angina generally requires an initial dosage of 50mg taken once a day, which may be increased after 1 week to 100mg per day. Certain patients may be told to take 200mg per day. In all cases, a medical consultation is required in order to determine the correct dosage.

Side effects
As with most other medicines, patients who take Tenormin (Atenolol) tablets may experience side effects, which can be mild or serious. A list of commonly reported side effects is provided here:

  • Depression
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Feeling dizzy or lightheaded
  • Problems related to sexual performance
  • An increase in feelings of anxiety or nervousness

Severe reactions, although uncommon, may still occur in a small number of patients. You will require immediate medical care if you experience a cold feeling in the limbs, inflammation of the feet or hands, weight gain or any other side effects which have not been listed here.

Precautions
When prescribing this medicine for you, it is likely that your doctor will inform you that suddenly stopping treatment with this drug can cause your symptoms to become worse, and in some cases, may even cause serious health complications. In order to avoid this, your doctor may instruct you to reduce your dosage over a period of 1 to 2 weeks.

If you are currently affected by or have in the past suffered from diabetes, allergies, asthma, illnesses affecting the lungs, hyperthyroidism, pheochromocytoma, heart problems, kidney disease or any medical conditions related to circulation, you must inform your doctor.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Tenormin (Atenolol) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.
