Tenolol 50 mg
Tenolol 100 mg
Tenolol is used alone or together with other medicines (such as hydrochlorothiazide) to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). High blood pressure adds to the workload of the heart and arteries. If it continues for a long time, the heart and arteries may not function properly. This can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart, and kidneys, resulting in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure.
High blood pressure may also increase the risk of heart attacks. These problems may be less likely to occur if blood pressure is controlled. Tenolol is also used to help prevent chest pain and to decrease the severity of heart attacks. Tenolol is a beta-blocker and works by affecting the response to nerve impulses in certain parts of the body, like the heart. As a result, the heart beats slower and decreases the blood pressure. When the blood pressure is lowered, the amount of blood and oxygen is increased to the heart.
Take Tenolol tablet by mouth with or with out food. Take the medication as prescribed by your doctor. If you are taking for the treatment of chest pain, take it regularly at the same time for better results. The initial dose of 50 mg a day is given for hypertension and angina. If the desired response is not achieved the dose is increased to 100 mg a day.
Side Effects are dizziness, fatigue, lightheadedness and nausea. Atenolol may cause impotency.
