What is Tensinor?
Tensinor containing the active ingredient atenolol is a beta blocker type of medication. It works by blocking the action of certain natural chemicals in the body to relax blood vessels and slowing heart rate to improve blood flow and decrease blood pressure. Lowering blood pressure can help prevent heart attacks, kidney problems and even strokes. Some people may also use the medication to treat angina, irregular heartbeat, heart failure, migraine headaches and even alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
How is Tensinor used?
Tensinor should be taken orally as directed by a doctor, usually 1 to 2 times per day. The tablets can be taken with or without food but should be taken with plenty of water. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the condition being treated and the patientís response to the therapy. The medication, when used with a regular exercise program and a proper diet can treat high blood pressure but cannot be used to cure the condition.
Patients using Tensinor may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
- Decreased sex drive or performance
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or encounter more severe side effects such as:
- Irregular heartbeats
- Mental or mood changes
- Cold feeling in hands and feet
- Unusual weight gain
- Shortness of breath
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.
