    Expert advice for Atenolol

    • Atenolol lowers your blood pressure and makes it easier for your heart to pump blood around your body.
    • Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent stroke and heart attack.
    • It may also be used to reduce the number and severity of angina attacks (chest pain caused by heart disease).
    • It may cause dizziness. If this happens to you, get up slowly when rising from a sitting or lying position.
    • It can hide symptoms of low blood sugar if you are diabetic. Monitor your blood sugar levels regularly.
    • Do not stop taking Atenolol suddenly as it can cause your blood pressure to rise suddenly, thereby increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke.
