Atenblock review

Atenblock, a cardiovascular medication in the beta-blocker group, is primarily used to treat chest pains and high blood pressure. It is also used in the prevention of myocardial infarctions and irregular heart beat episodes and in treating migraine cephalalgias and alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Atenblock is used in treating coronary heart disease, angina, arrhythmia and high blood pressure as well and it can diminish symptoms of Graves Disease until the antithyroid medication kicks in. Atenblock works by slowing the heart rate and reducing the heart's load in the process. This medication works well because it does not pose a risk to the central nervous system and is available in 25, 50 and 100mg pills. Atenblock is suitable to treat heart disorders in patients with extensive liver conditions because it is filtered and excreted in the kidneys, thereby reducing the load on the liver.

For high blood pressure, patients with unimpaired renal function may be given 25 to 50 mg per day. Doctors often give a lower dose initially and gradually increase the dosage each week, checking for the patient's response to the treatment. Dosage can range from 20 to 200mg. For angina, 100mg is frequently quite sufficient.

Asthma patients are given the lowest dose possible since they are at risk of bronchospasms or tightening of the airways as a result of taking Atenblock. Hexoprenaline or salbutamol may be administered if this occurs.

For patients with renal function impairment, doses are altered based on the doctor's observations and the patient's response to the medication. For example, end-stage renal failure patients dependent on dialysis will typically receive 50mg of Atenblock after the dialysis session. Note that these patients may suffer from severe hypotonia after taking the medication.

Atenblock causes fewer side effects than other beta-blockers yet some users will still experience side effects. Common side effects include fatigue, dizziness, stomach pains, constipation, hair loss, sexual dysfunction, difficulty sleeping and a runny or clogged nose. In the event that any of these symptoms arise, contact your doctor immediately.

Rare but more serious side effects include hallucinations, visual distortion, tingling feeling in the hands and feet, low blood pressure, rashes and skin disorders, and difficulty in hearing or speaking. These are serious side effects and require immediate medical attention. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek immediate medical attention.

Many medications react with Atenblock and you should inform your doctor if you take allergy medication, Monoamine oxidase inhibitors, diabetes medication, or other cardiovascular medications. People who suffer from asthma should inform their doctor so that their dosages can be properly managed and tested.

Atenblock can cause lessened activity and drowsiness so avoid doing work requiring full attention and avoid alcohol consumption to prevent increased drowsiness.

This medication also passes through breast milk and may also affect fertility. Consult your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant or are breastfeeding.
