What is Tenormin?
Tenormin is used to treat angina (chest pain caused by too little oxygen reaching the heart muscle), high blood pressure, and heart attack.
What is the most important information I should know about Tenormin?
You must take Tenormin regularly for it to be effective. Since blood pressure declines gradually, it may be several weeks before you get the full benefit of Tenormin. You must continue taking it even if you are feeling well. Tenormin does not cure high blood pressure. It only keeps it under control.
Tenormin should not be stopped suddenly. It can result in increased chest pain and heart attack. When stopping the drug, your doctor will gradually reduce your dosage.
Who should not take Tenormin?
Do not take Tenormin if you have a slow heartbeat, a history of serious heart block (conduction disorder), inadequate blood supply to the circulatory system (cardiogenic shock), heart failure, or if you are sensitive to any component of the drug.
