Tenoretic 100 mg - 14 Tablets
Tenoretic tablets combines the antihypertensive activity of two agents, a beta-blocker (atenolol) and a diuretic (chlortalidone).
Atenolol (Tenormin) is a beta-blocker that affects the heart and circulation (blood flow through arteries and veins). Atenolol is beta1-selective (i.e. acts preferentially on beta1-adrenergic receptors in the heart). Selectivity decreases with increasing dose.
• Angina (chest pain).
Points of interest:
• If you take this drug too close to bedtime, you may need to wake up to urinate. Therefore, it is best to take this medication at least 4 hours before your bedtime. Consult your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions about your dosing schedule.
• Do not stop taking atenolol without first talking to your doctor. Stopping suddenly may make your condition worse.
• If you are having any type of surgery, be sure the surgeon knows ahead of time that you are using this medicine.
• Atenolol can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert. Avoid drinking alcohol, which could increase drowsiness and dizziness while you are taking atenolol.
• Atenolol is only part of a complete program of treatment for hypertension that may also include diet, exercise, and weight control. Follow your diet, medication, and exercise routines very closely if you are being treated for hypertension.
• If you are being treated for high blood pressure, keep using this medication even if you feel fine. High blood pressure often has no symptoms. You may need to use blood pressure medication for the rest of your life.
