Uses
Atenolol (Atenolol) is a type of drug known as beta1-selective adrenoceptor blocking agent which is classified as a beta blocker. Its mode of action involves blocking the various beta receptors occurring throughout the body. Medical indications include being used on a prolonged basis to prevent angina attacks, reducing high blood pressure and treating arrhythmias (heartbeats which are irregular). By inhibiting beta receptors present in the vascular and bronchial musculature, it helps to decrease the effect that noradrenaline and adrenaline have on the heart, it helps to lower down the heart rate. It also reduces its need for oxygen which helps in the control of angina and has even been researched for alcohol withdrawal.

Dosage and Administration
Atenolol (Atenolol) tablets each contain 100mg of the active ingredient. The dosage will be tailored to suit each individual's medical needs, and the exact amount of medicine needed (as well as the frequency of administration) will be decided by the doctor. Adults taking it for prophylaxis of angina pectoris may be directed to start with 50mg once per day and if no response occurs after the first week, the doctor may increase it to 100mg per day. Certain patients may even be instructed by their doctor to administer 200mg per day. However, in all cases the dosage instructions provided by the doctor in charge of treatment must be fully complied with.
