What does Atenolol treat?

Atenolol falls into the class of beta blockers and is used in the prevention and treatment of heart attacks. It blocks the action of certain natural chemicals in the body on the heart and blood vessels. This lowers blood pressure and the heart rate and brings down the strain on the heart. Your physician may use this to treat other ailments based on their discretion.

Dosage Instructions

Follow the Atenolol dosage prescribed by your physician. The dosage could vary based on individual patient requirements. Always follow your physician’s instructions or go by the directions on the prescription drug label. Make sure you have it with a whole glass of water.

Missed a dose?

Take it immediately once you remember. In case, this time falls within 8 hours of the next dosage, skip it and get back to the prescribed schedule. Never take a double dose unless your physician specifically directs you to do so.

Overdosed?

Don’t waste any time and seek immediate medical attention.

Drug Interactions

Drug interactions must be considered before starting to take any kind of drug. Drug interactions might happen either when Atenolol is taken along with another drug or with particular foods. To prevent any kind of negative interaction, make sure you inform your doctor of any drugs you are taking including non-prescription medication, OTCs, health supplements like vitamins, minerals, herbal medicine and so on which may increase the effect of Atenolol.

It may interact with: 

  • Amiodarone
  • Chlorpropamide
  • Digoxin
  • Glipizide
  • Glyburide
  • Insulin
  • Metformin 
  • Nifedipine 

It may also interact with antidiabetic drugs and heart medication. This is not an exhaustive list though.

Appraise your doctor of any medical conditions that you are suffering from and your family history of medical ailments. It’s important that you do not stop or start taking any medicine without the consent of your physician.

Possible Side Effects

Atenolol might have some side effects but it’s not possible to anticipate them. It does not have any major side effects and the minor ones that may occur are temporary. In rare cases, there might be major side effects and immediate medical attention must be sought.

Some of the side effects could be nausea, cold hands and feet, diarrhea, sleep problems, dizziness, sudden weight gain, drowsiness, swelling ankles, tiredness, nervousness and anxiety.

In case, there is a change in intensity of side effects or if any new side effects develop, make sure you consult your doctor.

What to ask your doctor before you start on Atenolol

  • Can I take Atenolol along with other drugs? 
  • Are there certain foods, beverages and products to be avoided while on Atenolol? 
  • What is the dosage of Atenolol to be consumed? 
  • How should I use Atenolol?
