Atenolol Overview

Atenolol, is a medication of the beta blockers type, primarily used to treat high blood pressure and angina.[1] Other uses include the prevention of migraines.[1] It works by slowing down the heart and reducing its workload. Unlike propranolol, atenolol does not readily pass through the blood–brain barrier, thus decreasing the incidence of central nervous system side effects.[2] Introduced in 1976, atenolol was developed as a replacement f...

GG 269 round white tablet

What is a small white round tablet with GG 269 on it? ## I believe the original imprint posted here is incorrect. There are a couple of possible tablets which are likely what is being asking about. The first one is a round white tablet with GG 296 on it. That is Loratadine 10 mg (NDC 0781-5077). It's an antihistamine "used to temporarily relieve the symptoms of hay fever (allergy to pollen, dust, or other substances in the air) and other allergies." [1] Inactive ingredients: - Lactose Monohydrate - Magnesium Stearate - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - Sodium Starch Glycolate Type a Potato And the second one is a round white tablet with imprint GG 264. This is Atenolol 100 mg (NDC 0781-1507), which is a medication "used alone or in combination with other medications to trea...

Atenolol - Teva or Zydus?

Which is better for Atenolol? Teva or Zydus? Which works better? Which has less side effects? Teva is a smaller pill than Zydus. ## Hello Grammy, Both brands should have the same side effects because Atenolol is the active ingredient and Teva/Zydus are only the brands. Every person reacts to medication uniquely and thus each person is going to have to decide which brand works best for them. Although they share the same active ingredient, often brands will have small differences such as size, inactive ingredients, shape, coating etc. I will provide you with some of these details I sourced from the NIH so you can make a more informed decision on which you would prefer to take. Teva 25mg size: 6mm Inactive ingredients: - Anhydrous Citric Acid - Croscarmellose Sodium - Magnesium Stearate - ...

small white pill with gg 254

I have a loose small white pill with gg 254 printed on it. Is this Atenolol - a blood pressure pill? ## Hello Stormy, I wasn't able to find anything that matches your description but I was able to find a 100mg atenolol pill marked gg 264 which looks like it could be mistaken for gg 254. I will post a picture below, let me know if this is what you have before I provide you with additional information. Let me know if this is a match and then I will post additional information. I will keep searching for a 254 in the mean time.

Accidental double dose of Atenolol

My grandpa is 77 years old and he accidentally took 2 tablets of Atenolol 50mg at a time. Will any serious injury occur in regards to his health? Please advise. ## Doubling up hasbeen known to cause someone to experience more severe side effects, according NIH reports, which may include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Given his age, that could also make them worse. Thus, it would be best to consult his doctor to be safe. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Not sure if I accidentally took a double dose of atenolol or not, which would be 75mg with the mistake, instead of 37.50 mg normally. Will I be alright if I had taken a double dose? ## I accidentally took a 100 mg dose of atenolol instead of 1/2 pill about 1 hour ago. I take it for tachycardia...

Mecobalamin (500 Mcg)

what is this medicine for? ## Methylcobalamin is a Vitamin B12 nutritional supplement. It is often given to people who are deficient in this nutrient, or to help those who suffer from certain forms of nerve pain, because a deficiency in it can cause or contribute to such problems. More details: Are there any other questions? ## WHAT IS THE SIDE EFFECT OF MECOBALAMIN 500MCG? ## Yun, since this is a nutritional supplement, rather than a medication, the side effect profiles for it have not been studied, as is done for actual medications.

Atenolol and bad taste

I have been taking 25 mg of Atenolol for some time. It seems that since the shortage during the winter, I have had a bad taste in my mouth for some time. I am wondering if anyone else has noted this. It is the only medication I take. One doctor did wonder if any non-active ingredients in the Atenolol now being shipped have changed to create this effect. Has anyone else noticed this? ## KC94, I did a little research and according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information orally administered Atenolol is known to have a bitter taste. Different companies try to mask this by decreasing the solubility of the drug or by removing the interaction of the drug with the taste buds but it will vary from brand to brand and batch to batch. Basically some companies will flavor their drugs or...

Atenolol and Metoprolol

I was taking atenolol until the drug company stopped making them, and my doctor gave me metoprolol as a replacement. Is it ok to take metoprolol when i run out of atenolol? My doctor said it's ok, but I just wanted to double check. ## It is always best to follow your doctor's instructions. While there are no guarantees, it should be a smooth switch from one to the other. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. However, both of these medications are still available, at least for the moment. Where did you hear that Atenolol was discontinued? I am not saying you are wrong, because such information can change in an instance, sometimes it takes awhile for any given database to update. What I can t...
