What is atenolol (atenonol)?

Atenolol (atenonol) belongs to a group of medicines called beta-blockers and is used to treat chest pain (angina) and high blood pressure (hypertension). Atenolol (atenonol) is also used after an acute heart attack to improve survival. Atenolol (atenonol) causes the heart to beat more slowly and with less force. It also widens blood vessels. These actions help to lower blood pressure and decrease chest pain caused by angina.

Off label uses of atenolol (atenonol) include treatment of irregular heartbeats, tremors, heart failure and migraine headache prevention.

Atenolol (atenonol) may also be used for purposes other than those listed here.

Atenolol (atenonol) is not effective if you use it only when chest pain or a migraine headache occurs. It is very important to take Atenolol (atenonol) regularly as prescribed to help prevent these conditions.
