INTRODUCTION

ATENOWAL 50 contains Atenolol which belongs to the group of medicines called beta-blockers. It is used in the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension) and arrhythmia (uneven heart beats). High blood pressure (hypertension) is a condition in which the blood exerts an increased pressure against the walls of blood vessels. If left untreated, it may lead to damage of blood vessel, kidney problems, stroke and other heart problems. Arrhythmia is a heart condition in which there is an improper generation or conduction of cardiac impulses which affects the normal cardiac rhythm.

ATENOWAL 50 can be used in the prevention of angina pectoris (chest pain) and also offers protection to the heart in the early treatment after a heart attack (myocardial infarction). Atenolol acts by slowing the heart rate and force of contraction which makes your heart pump slowly with less force. Along with the treatment, your doctor might ask you to make certain lifestyle changes such as quitting alcohol and smoking, improve your sleep at night, eating a healthy diet and manage weight.

The most common side effect of taking this medicine is an initial decrease in pulse rate. This is usually normal and disappears with time. However, if it bothers you contact your doctor. Others include nausea, dizziness and tiredness. Before taking this medicine, inform your doctor if you have any other heart problems or kidney problems. ATENOWAL 50 should be used with caution in pregnant or breastfeeding women and in elderly patients. Consult your doctor before taking. Do not use this medicine in children under 18 years without consulting a doctor.

USES OF ATENOWAL 50

  • Treats high blood pressure and arrhythmia (uneven heart beats)
  • Prevents angina pectoris (chest pain) and recurrence of heart attack

HOW ATENOWAL 50 WORKS

Following oral administration, atenolol selectively binds to and inhibits the activity of beta 1-adrenergic receptors, which reduces the heart rate, force of contraction and cardiac output, leading to decrease in blood pressure. It also decreases cardiac workload and oxygen demand which helps in protecting the heart against heart attack and chest pain.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Take this medicine as directed by your physician. Swallow the medicine as whole with a sip of water. Do not crush or chew the medicine. Your doctor will decide the correct dose and duration for you depending upon your age, weight and health condition. Continue to take this medicine, as long as your doctor tells you to do so, to obtain better results.
