Rated Ateblocor for Hypertension Report
My parents had high bp. Since my thirties, so have I. I have been unable to suffer the adverse side of any medication. As a last resort, I was given the lowest dose of Ateblocor. My joints ached. My vision was affected. I had difficulty walking as the pain in my leg and thigh made me feel like a cripple. I saw the pharmacist at the surgery, (not so easy to see the doctors) who quite obviously thought it was ‘all in my mind’ and said he was unable to help me further. Well, I took matters into my own hands. I walk more. At least 30 minutes every other day and more if I have the time.(I am a retired female, but still very busy). I drink lots of water and watch my diet. I drink coconut water, which contains potassium and magnesium. It’s a pleasant drink and I have at least three small glasses day. I do have a weak coffee two or three times a day, occasionally with cream. I feel in charge of my body now and have just taken my bp reading 129/85. So, what do doctors know. Go for it.
What Is Ateblocor and How Does It Work?
Ateblocor is used with or without other medications to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This medication is also used to treat chest pain (angina) and to improve survival after a heart attack.
Ateblocor belongs to a class of drugs known as beta-blockers. It works by blocking the action of certain natural chemicals in your body, such as epinephrine, on the heart and blood vessels. This effect lowers the heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on the heart.
Ateblocor may also be used to treat irregular heartbeat, heart failure, alcohol withdrawal symptoms, and to prevent migraine headaches.
Ateblocor is available under the following different brand names: Tenormin.

Rated Ateblocor for Ventricular Tachycardia Report
I’ve been taking 25 mg of Ateblocor for 16 years to treat my symptoms. I’ve never had an issue until the past two months. Ateblocor actually worked great until now. Either I’ve built up an immune to this med or something has changed. I keep checking my pills to make sure the pharmacist gave me the correct ones. Slowly my symptoms came back like I’m not taking this medication at all. I take my meds at 7 a.m. and by 9 a.m. my heart rate is at 140 for no apparent reason. Not looking forward to changing my meds.. Hoping the extra dose works..
