Action of Atenolol

Atenolol is a beta-blocker that targets the heart (cardioselective beta-1 blocker).

The substance acts on the clock of the heartbeat, the sinus node. It reduces the transmission of electrical impulses in the heart, reduces the frequency and power of the heartbeat. In this way, the heart is relieved and can more easily find an orderly rhythm in the case of cardiac arrhythmias. During physical exertion, the drug prevents heart problems such as angina pectoris.

Atenolol also lowers blood pressure because it affects beta-1 receptors in the kidneys, thus hindering the release of the blood pressure-enhancing hormone renin.

    Atenolol for High blood pressure

    have had (never before) high blood pressure since my hip surgery. 180/110. The doctors in the hospital did not get him under control. In the rehab I felt worse and these doctors had done everything possible so that my blood pressure goes down again. Now I take Atenolol 25mg and Amlodipine 5mg every morning and my blood pressure is now at 130/70, as a rule. After the rehab, I have to become an internist to be properly hired. Who has had such experiences after surgery?

    Side effects: No side effects

    Atenolol for High blood pressure

    Had the day before yesterday in the hospital, because my blood pressure has increased to 280 and in the hospital I was switched to the Atenol 50 mg, which I should take twice. It was not successful after four hours and the blood pressure was back to 170/100 and I went home at my request. Have two, up to three times a year such slip-ups and in the summer it is worse, which I can understand well. Anyone who suffers from high blood pressure, should not stay in the sun for long, it meant a doctor of mine. It should also be noted that one takes at least two liters of liquid per day, as it is very important. I can not write anything more about the drug, because today I will take the Metropolol 50 mg again from me and to strengthen the effect, I will take the amlodepine 5 mg to suppress a heart hunt. On Monday I’ll have to talk to my family doctor about it and that’s why I do not want to write about it anymore.

    Side effects: No side effects
