Aten 100 mg is a medicine that affects the heart and circulation (blood flow through arteries and veins). It is prescribed primarily for treating hypertension (high blood pressure), angina (chest pain), heart rhythm disorders, and other heart or circulatory conditions. It is also used after a heart attack to increase the chances of survival and may be used in other conditions not listed here.

This medicine contains the active ingredient Atenolol, a class of medications known as beta-blockers, one of the safest and most effective antihypertensive drugs. The class of medications prevents adrenaline from affecting beta receptors in your blood vessels and heart. This causes blood vessels to relax, reducing blood pressure and chest pain. This also helps to decrease the heart’s demand for oxygen.     

Atenolol should be given with caution to those with obstructive airway disease, and full doses of beta-agonist bronchodilators should be given simultaneously.   


Aten passes the placenta, which exposes the fetus to possible negative effects. Additionally, studies have shown that Atenolol during the second trimester of pregnancy results in smaller infants for gestational age and lower birth weight. Fetal exposure to this beta blocker during the last months of pregnancy increases the infant’s risk. Low blood sugar, slow heart rate, and high blood pressure immediately or several hours after delivery.  


Atenol is not recommended for breastfeeding women. This medicine is excreted in breast milk and can cause unwanted effects on the nursing infant. 


Patients with bronchospastic disease should not, in general, receive Atenolol. The drug should be used cautiously in patients with bronchospastic diseases who do not respond to or can’t tolerate another antihypertensive agent. Beta-blockers should be used with caution in diabetic patients if their use is required.

Most patients have well-tolerated Aten. But like any other pharmaceutical agent, it can also cause side effects, including diarrhoea, headache, constipation, cold hands and feet, shortness of breath, unexplained tiredness, leg pain, reduced sex drive or impotence, and blood pressure that’s lower than unusual. These effects may resolve independently within a few days or a couple of weeks if these effects are mild. If they are more severe or don’t go away, there is an immediate need for medical help.


Serious side effects of Atenolol and its symptoms can include Allergic reaction, fever, anxiety, trouble breathing, depression, a red rash, trouble focusing, feelings of sadness, unusual weight gain, swelling of the hands, feet, and ankles, swelling of your tongue or throat, and tiredness.  

For hypertension, the initial dose of Aten is 50 mg once daily, given either as a single dose or in conjunction with diuretic therapy. Without an adequate therapeutic response after a few weeks, the dosage may be increased to a single 100 mg tablet once daily. Daily doses higher than this are unlikely to produce further benefits. For renal impaired or elderly patients, a lower dose of 25 mg daily is generally prescribed.   


For angina pectoris, the initial dose of Atenolol is 50 mg once daily. If, after one week, the patient hasn’t achieved the optimal response, the dose should be increased to 100 mg daily. Some patients may require 200 mg daily for an optimal therapeutic response. However, withdrawal should be achieved gradually with the patient monitored and advised to limit physical activity during this time.


For acute myocardial infarction, the intravenous injection should occur as possible after the patient arrives in the hospital within twelve hours of the heart attack. A 50 mg oral dose should follow twelve hours later. After that, oral dosing can be either 50 mg twice daily or 100 mg once daily for 6 to 9 days or until discharged from the hospital.


The dosage given here may differ from the one your doctor has prescribed. So, to achieve maximum effects, use the medicine exactly as your doctor has prescribed.
