 5  hypertension Brand name no side effects; generic, stomach problems F 69 10 years
 2  Hypertension Lethargy, sleeping during day, dizziness, light headed. Am getting off of it. M 56 3 months
 1  High Blood Pressure I give this a qualified "1", because others may not have the same reaction as I did, as an asthmatic. Rendered Albuterol inhaler useless. I immediately went into distress from the very first dose. I was sucking on my inhaler every 15 minutes. Did a Google search on Atenolol and there it was in bold letters: Do Not Use This Medication If You Are Using Albuterol!?!?!? (paraphrased). Stopped taking Atenolol and the problem went away. Go figure... M 58 1 days
 2  HBP Erectile dysfunction and borderline HBP despite drug M 50 12 months

TENORETIC 100  (ATENOLOL; CHLORTHALIDONE):  This medication is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This product contains 2 medications: atenolol and chlorthalidone. Atenolol 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. Chlorthalidone is a "water pill" (diuretic) and causes your body to get rid of extra salt and water. This effect may increase the amount of urine you make when you first start the medication. It also helps to relax the blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily. These medications are used together when 1 drug alone is not controlling your blood pressure. Your doctor may direct you to start taking the individual medications first, and then switch you over to this combination product if this is the best dose combination for you.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
