Aten 50 mg is prescribed primarily for the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure), angina (chest pain), heart rhythm disorders, and other heart or circulatory conditions. The medicine has Atenolol, a beta-blocker drug that affects the heart and circulation (blood flow through arteries and veins). It is also used after a heart attack to increase the chances of survival and may be used in other conditions not listed here.
Atenolol may impact your thinking capability and reflexes. Take extra care while driving or other such activities that require a high level of mental awareness and alertness. Avoid or limit alcohol consumption while taking Atenolol. Also, avoid getting up quickly from a lying or sitting position; otherwise, you may feel dizzy. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for any other restrictions while using this medicine. To ensure that this drug is safe for you, inform your doctor before taking Atenolol if you have any of the following conditions: diabetes (taking Atenolol can make it difficult for you to judge when you have low blood sugar), angina, low blood pressure, kidney or liver disease, depression, a thyroid disorder, myasthenia gravis, pheochromocytoma (tumor of the adrenal gland), circulation problems (such as Raynaud’s syndrome), or a history of allergies.
Some common side effects of Aten 50 mg are dizziness, drowsiness, lightheadedness, diarrhea, or fatigue. However, if any of these side effects persist or deteriorate, or if you get serious side effects or allergic reactions like rash, itching, swelling of face, tongue, or throat, or breathing trouble, unusual fatigue, sudden or unexplained weight gain, severe dizziness, severe stomach or abdominal pain, dark urine, yellowing of eyes and skin, persistent nausea or vomiting, seek medical attention immediately. Atenolol may reduce blood supply to your hand and feet, which may make them feel cold. Smoking may deteriorate this effect. Dress warmly and avoid tobacco use.
Aten dosage may depend on a range of factors like age, sex, drug allergies, or seriousness of the condition among several other factors. Your doctor will determine your dosage after examining you properly. Remember to follow your doctor’s advice properly for best results. Take Aten 50 mg strictly according to your doctor’s direction or according to the instructions on the medication label. Do not alter the dosage unless your doctor advises you to do so. Also, do not take this medication after the prescribed period is over. All medications come with a patient leaflet. Refer the instructions in them for detailed information on that medication. Atenolol works best when taken with food. Always store this medicine in a cool and dry place. Aten is a part of a full line of treatment for blood pressure which includes diet restrictions, exercises, and other medicines. Follow a proper regimen of these things as directed by your doctor to keep your blood pressure in control.
