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.

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.
