Atenolol - Oral



Atenolol is a beta-blocker used to treat chest pain (angina) and high blood pressure. It is also used after an acute heart attack to improve survival. High blood pressure reduction helps prevent strokes, heart attacks and kidney problems. Atenolol works by blocking the action of certain natural chemicals in your body such as epinephrine on the heart and blood vessels. This results in a lowering of the heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on the heart.

How To Use
  • Take Atenolol by mouth, usually once daily; or as directed by your doctor.
  • Use Atenolol regularly in order to get the most benefit from it.
  • To help you remember, use it at the same time each day.
  • Atenolol is not effective if you use it only when chest pain or a migraine headache occurs.
  • It is very important to take Atenolol regularly as prescribed to help prevent these conditions.
  • The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy.
  • It may take one or two weeks before the full benefit of Atenolol takes effect.
  • It is important to continue taking Atenolol even if you feel well.
  • Most people with high blood pressure do not feel sick.
  • Do not suddenly stop taking Atenolol without consulting your doctor.
  • Your condition may become worse when Atenolol is suddenly stopped.
  • Refer to the Warning section.

Side Effects
  • You may experience dizziness, lightheadedness, drowsiness, tiredness, nausea, diarrhea, unusual dreams, leg pain, or vision problems as your body adjusts to the medication.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
  • Atenolol may reduce blood flow to your hands and feet, causing them to feel cold.
  • Smoking may worsen this effect.
  • Dress warmly and avoid tobacco use.
  • Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: symptoms of a very slow heartbeat (e.g., persistent dizziness, fainting, unusual fatigue), bluish discoloration of the fingers and toes, numbness/tingling/swelling of the hands or feet, decreased sexual ability, reversible hair loss, mental/mood changes, joint changes, butterfly-shaped rash on the nose and cheeks, trouble breathing, cough, unexplained or sudden weight gain, increased thirst, increased urination.

  • Atenolol may make you dizzy or drowsy; use caution engaging in activities requiring alertness such as driving or using machinery.
