Tenormin is prescribed for patients with high blood pressure (hypertension). It is also used to treat chest pain (angina pectoris) related to coronary artery disease. Tenormin is also useful in slowing and regulating certain types of abnormally rapid heart rates (tachycardias). Other uses for tenormin include the prevention of migraine headaches and the treatment of certain types of tremors (familial or hereditary essential tremors).
Should be taken before meals or at bedtime.
Drug Class and Mechanism
Tenormin is a beta-adrenergic blocking agent. Tenormin blocks the action of the sympathetic nervous system, a portion of the involuntary nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system stimulates the pace of the heart beat. By blocking the action of these nerves, tenormin reduces the heart rate and is useful in treating abnormally rapid heart rhythms. Tenormin also reduces the force of heart muscle contraction and lowers blood pressure. By reducing the heart rate and the force of muscle contraction, tenormin reduces heart muscle oxygen demand. Since angina occurs when oxygen demand of the heart exceeds supply, tenormin is helpful in treating angina.
