Tenormin tablets 25 mg for hypertension and heart diseases
What are Tenormin 25 mg tablets for hypertension and heart disease?
Atenolol serves as the principal component within Tenormin tablets, contributing to its therapeutic effects. The mechanism of action involves the inhibition of beta-1 receptors located within the heart. By doing so, the medication achieves a reduction in blood pressure and a deceleration of heart rate. This physiological response finds utility in various medical conditions.
Tenormin tablets find application in both the prevention of anginal attacks and the management of tachyarrhythmia, hypertension, angina, and long QT syndrome. The medication's proficiency in affecting beta-1 receptors in the heart enables its versatility in treating these conditions, where a regulation of heart rate and blood pressure is crucial.
Notably, atenolol exhibits a distinctive pharmacokinetic profile. It is predominantly eliminated through the renal route in an unchanged form, highlighting the renal system's role in its excretion. Furthermore, atenolol demonstrates limited permeability through the blood-brain barrier, indicating a reduced propensity to affect central nervous system functions.
Tenormin tablets offer a favorable safety profile, particularly for patients with compromised liver function. This attribute stems from the minimal hepatic metabolism associated with the medication. Consequently, individuals with liver dysfunction can benefit from the therapeutic effects of Tenormin without heightened concerns regarding significant hepatic involvement.
