What Apo-Atenol

is used for

Apo-Atenol can be used for:

high blood pressure

symptoms of chest pain (angina)

How Apo-Atenol works

Apo-Atenol belongs to a class of drugs

called beta-blockers. Atenolol acts by

blocking the action of certain chemicals

(hormones) on the heart and the blood

vessels and affects, amongst other things,

the heart rate and the heart’s workload.

Before you use Apo-Atenol

When you must not use it

Do not use this product if you have

any known heart failure/

complications/ problems, as this

product might cause greater stress to

your heart. This includes sinus

bradycardia (decreased heart rate

pattern), atrioventricular block/ AV

block (impairment of conduction

between the chambers in the heart). If

you are unsure, always talk to your

health consultant before taking this

product.

You must not use this product if you

are allergic to atenolol or any other

ingredient in this product.

Pregnancy and lactation

Do not take Apo-Atenol if you are

pregnant, trying to get pregnant or think

you may be pregnant.

Do not take Apo-Atenol if you are

breast-feeding. Ask your doctor or

pharmacist for advice before taking any

medicine.

Before you start to use it

Before you start using this medication,

you should inform your doctor if you

have:

- any other type of medical condition

you have, such as thyrotoxicosis

(excess of thyroid hormones in the

body, diabetes, kidney function

problem, or any heart related disease.

-any planned surgeries in the near

future, or had just undergone a

surgery, whether minor or major.

Taking other medicines

It is not advised to take a combination

of more than 1 beta blockers

medication at the same time. If you are

previously taking this medication with

clonidine, and is told to withdraw

clonidine, you should withdraw

atenolol several days before

withdrawal of clonidone, as the

presence of beta-blocker will agitate

the withdrawal effect of clonidine.

Tell your doctor if your are receiving

catecholamine depleting drugs such as

reserpine or guanethidine (to treat high

blood pressure).

Tell your doctor if you are taking any

other medicines, including any that

you buy without a prescription from a

pharmacy, supermarket or health food

shop.

How to use Apo-Atenol

How much to use

understand the instructions on the

label, ask your doctor or pharmacist

for help.

The starting dose is 50mg once daily.

The dose can be increased to 100mg

once daily if an adequate response is

not achieved.

When to use it

Use as directed by your doctor or

pharmacist.

How long to use it

Continue taking Apo-Atenol for as

long as your doctor recommends.

If you forget to use it

Consult your doctor or pharmacist on

what you should do if you forget to use

Take the missed dose as soon as you

remember. If it is almost time for your

next dose, wait until then to take the

medicine and skip the missed dose. Do

not take a double dose to make up for

the missed dose.

If you use too much (overdose)

Contact your doctor immediately or go

to the Emergency Department of your

nearest hospital, if you think you or

anyone else may have taken too much

of this medicine. Do this even if there

are no signs of discomfort or

poisoning. You may need urgent

medical attention.

Taking too much of this medication

may cause bradycardia (lower heart

rate), congestive heart failure (heart

pumping power becomes weak), low

blood pressure, hypoglycemia (low

blood sugar) or maybe bronchospasm

(sudden constriction of airway

passage).

While you are using it

Things you must do

Take your medicine exactly as your

doctor has told you.

pharmacists treating you that you are

taking Apo-Atenol.
