Atenolol - Overview
Atenolol, marketed under the name Tenormin, is a medication used in the management of hypertension (high blood pressure). Push Health connects people in need of an atenolol prescription with medical providers who can prescribe Tenormin when appropriate.
What Is Atenolol Used For?
Atenolol (Tenormin) is a beta1-selective adrenoreceptor blocking agent with cardioselective properties. Atenolol is in the same class of medications as metoprolol although atenolol has different effects on the blood vessels. Atenolol is widely used as it has very little in the way of intrinsic sympathomimetic activities. A synthetic medication, atenolol has been observed to cause a reduction in heart rate, cardiac output, blood pressure and reflex orthostatic tachycardia. Atenolol differs from propranolol and carvedilol in that it is much more selective in its effects, is metabolized by the liver differently and is less bound to proteins in the plasma. Atenolol is also combined with chlorthalidone in a medication called Tenoretic.
Atenolol - Dosage and Cost
After oral administration, roughly half of the oral atenolol dose is absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract. Peak atenolol levels in the blood are reached in as little as 4 hours and the half-life when ingested as Tenormin is 6 to 7 hours. The antihypertensive effects of atenolol can persist for 24 hours after oral ingestion. Atenolol is excreted via the feces and urine. As Tenormin, atenolol is available as atenolol 25 mg, atenolol 50 mg and atenolol 100 mg tablets. Atenolol 50 mg tablets are inexpensive, costing under 10 cents per tablet at many pharmacies. Atenolol coupons are available online and some insurance plans will also cover the costs associated with filling an atenolol prescription.
Can I Buy Atenolol Online?
Atenolol is a prescription medication in the US, meaning that one needs a prescription from a licensed medical provider before being able to obtain atenolol tablets from a pharmacy. Because of this, one cannot just buy atenolol online and atenolol OTC is not available from pharmacies in the United States. However, people in need of an atenolol prescription can connect with a medical provider using Push Health who can prescribe atenolol if appropriate to do so.
Atenolol - Side Effects
Atenolol's side effects include weakness, fatigue, dizziness, low heart rate and blood pressure, and cardiac dysfunction. Atenolol should be avoided in anyone with a hypersensitivity or allergy. Additionally, there are a wide range of patients who should not use atenolol because of underlying cardiac or other medical conditions. Atenolol and alcohol should typically not be used together. Anyone planning to use atenolol should first discuss all questions and side effects with a licensed medical provider and pharmacist prior to use.
