Tenormin Product Description
Tenormin is a cardioselective beta-blocker with antihypertensive, antiarrhythmic and antianginal activity. Tenormin is successfully used to treat hypertension and reduce the risk of fatal and non-fatal cardiovascular events in patients aged 18 years and older. Oral Tenormin tablets are approved for short-term and long-term management of:
- cardiac arrhythmias (post-infarction period included);
- angina pectoris caused by coronary artery disease (CAD);
- disabling angina without signs of congestive heart failure (CHF);
- mild or moderate hypertension (as monotherapy);
- severe hypertension (in combination with peripheral vasodilators or/ and thiazides and thiazide-like diuretics).
In addition, Tenormin is used to reduce fatal cardiovascular events in patients with suspected or confirmed acute heart attack. Antihypertensive and antianginal effects are reached within 7-14 days after the start of using Tenormin tablets. The maximum dose of Tenormin for hypertensive patients is 100mg a day as a single dose. The patients with angina may need to increase Tenormin dose up to 200mg per day.
If you miss a dose of Tenormin, you may take it as soon as you remember if there is much time until the next dose of this beta blocker. If there is little time before the next dose of Tenormin, skip the missed tablet and do not double the prescribed dose.
The patients should be prescribed with injectable Tenormin for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias associated with acute heart attack. Tenormin intravenous injections should be administered only to hemodynamically stable patients. If the patient shows tolerance to the effects of the maximum intravenous dose of Tenormin 10 mg, he or she can be prescribed with Tenormin 50mg or 100mg oral tablets.
Tenormin tablets are advised to store at controlled room temperature between 15°C and 25°C. This beta blocker must be protected from light, heat and moisture.
