Uses of Tenormin
Tenormin is a type of beta-blocker drug that treats angina (chest pain) and hypertension (high blood pressure). It affects how blood flows through the arteries and veins and eventually lower episodes of a heart attack.
Beta-blockers work by blocking the action of natural chemicals in the body and lowering heart rate or blood pressure. This process prevents the occurrence of stroke and heart attacks. You can purchase this medicine under the generic name Atenolol.
