SALT INFORMATION

Atenolol(25 mg)

TYPICAL USAGE

To control high blood pressure, prevent chest pain, control heart rhythm disorders and prevention of severe headache (migraine).

SIDE EFFECTS

Narrowing of airways, wheezing, slowing of heart rate, low blood pressure, heart failure, heart block, cold hands and feet, feeling tired and weak, dizziness, confusion, drowsiness, feeling depressed, urge to vomit (nausea), diarrhea, constipation, and inability to maintain erection (sexual dysfunction).

DRUG INTERACTION

NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, naproxen and calcium channel blockers (verapamil, nifedipine and diltiazem) taken with atenolol can severely lower blood pressure and reduce heart rate. Atenolol when administered with antiarrhythmic drugs (disopyramide, amiodarone), digoxin can cause severe lowering of heart rate. Use of other hypotensive with atenolol can cause excess lowering of blood pressure. Both digitalis glycosides and beta-blockers slow atrioventricular conduction and decrease heart rate. Concomitant use can decrease the heart rate (bradycardia). Administration with insulin or other oral anti-diabetics can impair sugar control. Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Atenolol blocks beta receptors (beta blockers) in the heart and peripheral blood vessels resulting in slowing of heart rate and relaxing of blood vessels thereby lowering blood pressure. Atenolol reduces oxygen requirement at any level of activity making it useful for long-term management of heart attacks caused by restricted cardiac blood flow.
