The generic ingredient in Tenormin is called atenolol, which belongs to a class of medications called beta blockers that are prescribed to treat high blood pressure and prevent chest pain.
Doctors prescribe Tenormin to treat high blood pressure and prevent angina (chest pain). Doctors may decide to prescribe another medicine like a water pill or a vasodilator for you to take along with Tenormin to treat your high blood pressure.
As part of a group of medicines called beta blockers, Tenormin works by making your heart beat more slowly and with less force, thereby reducing blood pressure. The drug also helps to widen blood vessels to improve blood flow.
The usual adult dose is 50mg to 100mg taken orally once per day. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully as he or she will decide how much Tenormin you should take depending on your condition and what other medication you are taking. Sometimes up to 200mg is required by patients with chest pain.
These may not be all the side effects of Tenormin 50mg.
Do not use Tenormin if you have serious problems with blood flow in your feet and legs, irregular heartbeats or severe heart damage.
Before taking this medication, tell your doctor if you have heart problems, a history of fainting, asthma, thyroid problems or diabetes. You should not breastfeed while taking Atenolol.
Store at room temperature (15º to 25ºC), away from light and moisture. Discard after the expiry date.
