About Aten 100 mg TABLET
Aten 100 mg TABLET belongs to a group of heart disease-related medicines known as beta-blockers. It helps in the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension), irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias), chest pain with painful tightness in the chest (angina pectoris), and protects the heart in the early treatment after a heart attack (myocardial infarction). High blood pressure increases the heart’s workload, and if it continues for a long time, the heart and blood vessels (arteries) may not function properly. It can damage the arteries of the brain, heart, and kidneys, resulting in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure. However, lowering blood pressure may reduce the risk of stroke and heart attacks.
ATEN 100MG TABLET contains atenolol, which primarily helps relax our blood vessels by blocking the action of certain natural substances in your body. Thus, ATEN 100MG TABLET helps lower your raised blood pressure and reduce the risk of having a stroke, a heart attack, other heart problems, or kidney problems in the future.
You can take ATEN 100MG TABLET with food or before/after a meal. Your doctor will advise you how often you take your tablets based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience headaches, cold hands/feet, diarrhoea, feeling sick (nausea), feeling tired, aching and tired muscles, depressed mood, and dizziness. Most of these side effects of ATEN 100MG TABLET do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.
Try not to stop taking this medicine of your own as it may raise your blood pressure and increase the chance of having a heart attack.
