IV. Uses of Atenolol/Chlorthalidone

  1. Blood Pressure Control: Atenolol, a beta-blocker, helps reduce the heart rate and the force of contraction, thereby lowering blood pressure. Chlorthalidone, a thiazide diuretic (water pill), promotes the excretion of excess salt and water from the body, further aiding in blood pressure reduction1.

  2. Risk Reduction: By effectively managing blood pressure, Atenolol and chlorthalidone contribute to a decrease in the risk of stroke, heart attacks, and artery bulges (aneurysms). Consistent use of this combination medication can lead to better outcomes and a lower likelihood of complications related to heart problems over time1.
