Patienteninformation

Co-Atenolol Spirig HC®

Spirig HealthCare AG

Was ist Co-Atenolol Spirig HC und wann wird es angewendet?

Co-Atenolol Spirig HC vereint in einer Filmtablette zwei Substanzen, die sich in ihrer

blutdrucksenkenden Wirkung sinnvoll ergänzen.

Co-Atenolol Spirig HC enthält die Wirkstoffe Atenolol und Chlortalidon. Atenolol senkt den

Blutdruck und dämpft die Herztätigkeit ohne die Muskulatur der Atemwege zu beeinflussen, was

eine unerwünschte Wirkung anderer, dem Atenolol verwandter Stoffe ist. Somit können auch

Patienten mit Erkrankungen der Atemwege (Atemnot, Asthma) Co-Atenolol Spirig HC mit

entsprechender Vorsicht einnehmen.

Chlortalidon senkt den Blutdruck, indem es die Ausscheidung von Wasser und Salz durch die Nieren

erhöht.

Co-Atenolol Spirig HC darf nur auf Verschreibung und unter ständiger Kontrolle des Arztes oder der

Ärztin verwendet werden.

Wann darf Co-Atenolol Spirig HC nicht angewendet werden?

Falls Sie an einer Herzkrankheit mit verlangsamtem Puls (unter 50 Schläge pro Minute), an

Herzschwäche oder Herzblock leiden, dürfen Sie Co-Atenolol Spirig HC nicht einnehmen. Bei

Patienten mit Herzschwäche ist eine spezielle Behandlung, eventuell die Kombination mit einem

anderen Herzmittel, notwendig. Auf jeden Fall müssen Sie Ihren Arzt resp. Ihre Ärztin informieren,

falls Sie bereits früher einmal eine allergische Reaktion auf Co-Atenolol Spirig HC bzw. Atenolol

oder Chlortalidon gezeigt haben oder falls Sie jemals einen sehr langsamen oder unregelmässigen

Puls, einen sehr tiefen Blutdruck oder eine sehr schlechte Durchblutung hatten. Auch wenn man bei

Ihnen ein Phäochromozytom festgestellt hat oder nach längerem Fasten dürfen Sie Co-Atenolol

Spirig HC nicht anwenden. Co-Atenolol Spirig HC ist für die Behandlung von Kindern nicht

geeignet.

Wann ist bei der Einnahme von Co-Atenolol Spirig HC Vorsicht geboten?

Dieses Arzneimittel kann die Reaktionsfähigkeit, die Fahrtüchtigkeit und die Fähigkeit, Werkzeuge

oder Maschinen zu bedienen, beeinträchtigen.

Wie bei anderen Diuretika kann auch das in Co-Atenolol Spirig HC enthaltene Chlortalidon eine

Zuckerkrankheit oder Gicht verschlechtern. Informieren Sie deshalb Ihren Arzt bzw. Ihre Ärztin,

falls Sie an einer Zuckerkrankheit leiden, schon einmal einen Gichtanfall hatten oder Disopyramide

resp. Amidarone gegen unregelmässigen Herzschlag einnehmen.

Wenn Sie an Allergien, Asthma, Atembeschwerden oder Durchblutungsstörungen leiden oder

Probleme mit dem Herz, den Nieren resp. der Schilddrüse haben, sollte Co-Atenolol Spirig HC mit

Vorsicht angewendet werden. Vorsicht ist auch angebracht, wenn Sie gleichzeitig andere

Arzneimittel anwenden wie z.B. Lithium, Schmerzmittel, abschwellende Nasensprays oder Mittel

gegen Erkältungen, unregelmässigen Puls und Herzinsuffizienz.

Falls Sie Clonidin gegen Bluthochdruck oder Migräne anwenden, sollten Sie weder Clonidin noch

Co-Atenolol Spirig HC von sich aus absetzen, ohne mit Ihrem Arzt bzw. mit Ihrer Ärztin darüber

gesprochen zu haben.

Ebenso müssen vor einem chirurgischen Eingriff dem Narkosearzt resp. der Narkoseärztin alle

Arzneimittel, die Sie einnehmen, bekannt sein.

Suchen Sie unverzüglich Ihren Arzt bzw. Ihre Ärztin auf, falls Ihr Ruhepuls im Verlauf der

Behandlung unter 50 Schläge pro Minute sinkt, oder falls Ihr Blutdruck zu niedrig ist. Anzeichen

hierfür sind Müdigkeit und Schwindel bei zu raschem Aufstehen.

Bei Zuckerkranken kann Co-Atenolol Spirig HC die Wirkung von Insulin oder von anderen

blutzuckersenkenden Mitteln herabsetzen. Ebenso können die sonst bei tiefem Blutzucker

einsetzenden Körperreaktionen, wie erhöhter Puls, verändert sein.

Informieren Sie Ihren Arzt oder Apotheker bzw. Ihre Ärztin oder Apothekerin, wenn Sie

·an anderen Krankheiten leiden,

·Allergien haben oder

·andere Arzneimittel (auch selbstgekaufte) einnehmen oder äusserlich anwenden!

Darf Co-Atenolol Spirig HC während einer Schwangerschaft oder in der Stillzeit eingenommen

werden?

Während einer Schwangerschaft oder in der Stillzeit sollten Sie, wenn möglich, keine Arzneimittel

einnehmen. Dies gilt insbesondere auch für Co-Atenolol Spirig HC.

Informieren Sie unbedingt Ihren Arzt bzw. Ihre Ärztin, falls Sie schwanger sind, eine

Schwangerschaft planen oder ein Kind stillen.

Wie verwenden Sie Co-Atenolol Spirig HC?

Nehmen Sie Co-Atenolol Spirig HC genau nach Anweisung Ihres Arztes bzw. Ihrer Ärztin ein. Im

Allgemeinen beträgt die Dosis für Erwachsene 1× täglich eine Filmtablette Co-Atenolol Spirig HC

100/25, in leichteren Fällen 1× täglich 1 Filmtablette Co-Atenolol Spirig HC 50/12.5. Bei Patienten,

die an einer Nierenkrankheit mit Ausscheidungsstörungen leiden, wird der Arzt bzw. die Ärztin die

Dosis entsprechend anpassen.

Nehmen Sie die Filmtablette unzerkaut, am besten immer zur gleichen Tageszeit, mit etwas Wasser

oder Fruchtsaft ein. Wenn Sie einmal eine Filmtablette vergessen haben, nehmen Sie diese ein,

sobald Sie sich daran erinnern. Es sollten jedoch nicht zwei Filmtabletten gleichzeitig eingenommen

werden.

Ohne Rücksprache mit Ihrem Arzt bzw. Ihrer Ärztin sollten Sie die Dosis nicht verändern oder das

Arzneimittel absetzen. Ein unkontrollierter hoher Blutdruck kann gefährliche Folgen haben.

Ein allfälliges Absetzen sollte über 1 bis 2 Wochen langsam ausschleichend erfolgen.

Die Anwendung und Sicherheit von Co-Atenolol Spirig HC, Filmtabletten, bei Kindern und

Jugendlichen ist bisher nicht geprüft worden.

Ändern Sie nicht von sich aus die verschriebene Dosierung. Wenn Sie glauben, das Arzneimittel

wirke zu schwach oder zu stark, so sprechen Sie mit Ihrem Arzt oder Apotheker bzw. Ihrer Ärztin

oder Apothekerin.

Welche Nebenwirkungen kann Co-Atenolol Spirig HC haben?

Folgende Nebenwirkungen können bei der Einnahme von Co-Atenolol Spirig HC auftreten:

Häufig können Müdigkeit, Übelkeit, Erbrechen, Durchfall, verlangsamter Pulsschlag sowie kalte

Hände und Füsse auftreten. Gelegentlich wurden Schlafstörungen beobachtet. Selten ist von

Verwirrtheit, Schwindel, Kopfschmerzen, Stimmungsschwankungen, Alpträumen, Halluzinationen,

Kribbeln in den Händen und Füssen, Sehstörungen, trockene Augen, tiefer Blutdruck mit Schwindel

bei zu raschem Aufstehen, Atembeschwerden bei Asthmatikern, Mundtrockenheit, Verstärkung einer

Schuppenflechte, Hautausschläge, Haarausfall und Impotenz berichtet worden.

Wenn Sie Nebenwirkungen bemerken, die hier nicht beschrieben sind, sollten Sie Ihren Arzt oder

Apotheker bzw. Ihre Ärztin oder Apothekerin informieren.

Was ist ferner zu beachten?

Bei Raumtemperatur (15–25 °C), in der Originalpackung vor Licht und Feuchtigkeit geschützt und

für Kinder unerreichbar aufbewahren.

Das Arzneimittel darf nur bis zu dem auf dem Behälter mit «EXP.» bezeichneten Datum verwendet

werden. Wenn die Haltbarkeit abgelaufen ist, bringen Sie die Packung in die Apotheke zur
