Overview Information on Atenolol
Pharmacist Tip
Check with your doctor before you take medicines for coughs, colds, or pain. Some of these medicines may increase your blood pressure.     
Atenolol is a type of medicine called a beta-blocker, which doctors prescribe along with other kinds of medicine to treat high blood pressure and chest pain. Your doctor may want you to take atenolol to help protect your heart if you have a heart attack and to help prevent you from having another heart attack.

Atenolol helps the heart to beat more regularly. Atenolol relaxes the blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily through your body. While atenolol may improve your high blood pressure and chest pain, it will not cure them.
