Tenoric 100/25 mg treats hypertension (high blood pressure). It combines the antihypertensive activity of two agents: Atenolol and chlorthalidone. This fixed dose combination is not indicated for the initial treatment of hypertension. Atenolol belongs to a class of medications known as beta-blockers, making your heartbeat slower and more forceful. Chlorthalidone is a diuretic that increases the urine produced by the kidneys. This medicine does not cure your disease but helps to control it.
If the fixed-dose combination medicine represents the dose appropriate to the individual patient’s needs, it may be more convenient than the separate components.
Take the Tenoric tablet by swallowing the tablet whole with water once daily at the same time each day. Depending on your condition, your doctor will decide how many Tenoric tablets to take daily. The usual adult dose is one tablet a day. Do not stop taking Tenoric suddenly, which could lead to chest pain or a heart attack. If your doctor decides you should stop taking this combination drug, your dose may be reduced, so you must use it less before discontinuing treatment completely.
Tenoric is contraindicated in patients with heart block, sinus bradycardia, cardiogenic shock, overt cardiac failure, anuria, and hypersensitivity to the product or sulfonamide-derived drugs. Do not use Atenolol/chlorthalidone if you have slow or irregular heartbeats or if you have been told that you have a heart block. Avoid using this medicine if you have heart failure and you notice that your symptoms are getting worse. For example, you feel more tired, are out of breath, or have to swell your ankles.
Do not use Tenoric if you have low blood pressure, an adrenal gland tumour, abnormal levels of acids in your blood, and cannot produce urine.
Before taking this combination medicine, let your doctor know the following:-
– If you are pregnant, are trying to get pregnant, or are breastfeeding.
– Younger than 18 years of age
– If you have health issues like asthma or lung problems, thyroid problems, circulation problems, diabetes, liver problems, circulation problems, lupus or gout, or allergies
– If you are going to the hospital for an operation. Before performing tasks requiring special attention, wait until you know how to respond to Tenoric/chlorthalidone. You may notice that your pulse rate gets slower while taking Tenoric medicine.
Possible side effects from using Tenoric include diarrhea, cough, nausea, cold fingers and toes, dizziness, trouble sleeping, tiredness, headache, vertigo, and joint and back pain. Talk to your doctor if you have troublesome symptoms or side effects not listed in this information guide or become bad enough to interfere with your daily activities.
