What is the dosage for Tenoretic?
- The dose for treating high blood pressure or angina is 25-100 mg once daily.
- Acute myocardial infarction (heart attack) is treated with two 5 mg injections administered 10 minutes apart. Ten minutes after the last injection, give 50 mg every 12 hours followed by 100 mg oral Tenoretic daily for 6-9 days. If Tenoretic injections are not appropriate, patients may be treated with 100 mg daily of oral Tenoretic for 7 days.
Acute Myocardial Infarction
In a series of investigations in the treatment of acute myocardial infarction, bradycardia and hypotension occurred more commonly, as expected for any beta blocker, in Tenoretictreated patients than in control patients. However, these usually responded to atropine and/or to withholding further dosage of Tenoretic. The incidence of heart failure was not increased by Tenoretic. Inotropic agents were infrequently used. The reported frequency of these and other events occurring during these investigations is given in the following table. In a study of 477 patients, the following adverse events were reported during either intravenous and/or oral Tenoretic administration:
In the subsequent International Study of Infarct Survival (ISIS-1) including over 16,000 patients of whom 8,037 were randomized to receive TENORMIN treatment, the dosage of intravenous and subsequent oral TENORMIN was either discontinued or reduced for the following reasons:
During postmarketing experience with TENORMIN, the following have been reported in temporal relationship to the use of the drug: elevated liver enzymes and/or bilirubin, hallucinations, headache, impotence, Peyronie's disease, postural hypotension which may be associated with syncope, psoriasiform rash or exacerbation of psoriasis, psychoses, purpura, reversible alopecia, thrombocytopenia, visual disturbance, sick sinus syndrome, and dry mouth. TENORMIN, like other beta blockers, has been associated with the development of antinuclear antibodies (ANA), lupus syndrome, and Raynaud's phenomenon.
How it works
Tenoretic belongs to a class of drugs called beta blockers. A class of drugs is a group of medications that work in a similar way. These drugs are often used to treat similar conditions.
Beta receptors are found on cells in the heart. When adrenaline activates a beta receptor, blood pressure and heart rate go up. Beta blockers prevent adrenaline from affecting beta receptors in your blood vessels and heart. This causes blood vessels to relax. By relaxing the vessels, beta blockers help to lower blood pressure and reduce chest pain. They also help to decrease the heart's demand for oxygen.
Beta blockers don’t permanently change blood pressure and chest pain. Instead, they help to manage the symptoms.
Tenoretic may cause drowsiness. It can also cause other side effects.
You should not use this Tenoretic if you have a serious heart condition such as "AV block," very slow heartbeats, or heart failure.
Do not stop taking Tenoretic without first talking to your doctor. Stopping suddenly may make your condition worse.
If you are having any type of surgery, be sure the surgeon knows ahead of time that you are using this medicine.
Tenoretic can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert. Avoid drinking alcohol, which could increase drowsiness and dizziness while you are taking Tenoretic.
Tenoretic is only part of a complete program of treatment for hypertension that may also include diet, exercise, and weight control. Follow your diet, medication, and exercise routines very closely if you are being treated for hypertension.
If you are being treated for high blood pressure, keep using this medication even if you feel fine. High blood pressure often has no symptoms. You may need to use blood pressure medication for the rest of your life.

Tenoretic can cause breathing difficulties in patients with asthma, chronic bronchitis, or emphysema. In patients with existing slow heart rates (bradycardias) and heart blocks (defects in the electrical conduction of the heart), Tenoretic can cause dangerously slow heart rates and even shock. Tenoretic reduces the force of heart muscle contraction and can aggravate symptoms of heart failure.
In patients with coronary artery disease, abruptly stopping Tenoretic can suddenly worsen angina, and occasionally precipitate heart attacks. If it is necessary to discontinue Tenoretic, its dosage can be reduced gradually over several weeks.
