ATENOLOL

Information for patients
Drug Information Atenolol contains a medicine called atenolol. This belongs to a group of medicines called beta blockers. Atenolol is used to: •Treat high blood pressure (hypertension). •Treat uneven heart beats (arrhythmias). •Help prevent chest pain (angina). •Protect the heart in the early treatment after a heart attack (myocardial infarction). It works by making your heart beat more slowly and with less force.
Drug Alert
Alert Do not take Atenolol if: •You are allergic (hypersensitive) to atenolol. •You have ever had any of the following heart problems: -heart failure which is not under control (this usually makes you breathless and causes your ankles to swell) - second- or third-degree heart block (a condition which may be treated by a pacemaker) - very slow or very uneven heart beats, very low blood pressure or very poor circulation. • You have a tumour called phaeochromocytoma that is not being treated. This is usually near your kidney and can cause high blood pressure. If you are being treated for phaeochromocytoma, your doctor will give you another medicine, called an alpha-blocker, to take as well as your Atenolol. •You have been told that you have higher than normal levels of acid in your blood (metabolic acidosis). Do not take Atenolol if any of the above apply to you. If you are not sure, talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking Atenolol.
