Were you looking for information about Atenolol? Attenolol is a common misspelling of atenolol.
A healthcare provider may prescribe atenolol (Tenormin®) to treat several conditions of the heart or blood vessels. This prescription medication can help control high blood pressure, relieve the symptoms of angina, or improve survival after a heart attack. Atenolol works by decreasing the heart rate, blood pressure, and workload on the heart. Because this medication is not suitable for everyone, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medical conditions you have, as well as any other medications you are taking, including vitamins and supplements.
