What can I do if I am commercially insured but cannot afford my atenolol/chlorthalidone?

If you are commercially insured and you cannot afford your copay or co-insurance you can opt for purchasing atenolol/chlorthalidone outside of your plan using the Rx Advantage card, with costs that are usually lower than a typical plan copay. If you elect to use this method, out of pocket costs do not contribute towards your plan deductibles.

If you cannot afford the cash price possibly due to income constraints, then there is the option of applying to state assistance programs like Medicaid. Often, you may be able to receive your atenolol/chlorthalidone without any costs at all. You can check Medicaid eligibility in your state by following this link HealthCare.gov. The government site is easy to use and you can select your state and it will navigate you to the appropriate contact point to make the application.

Conditions treated by atenolol/chlorthalidone

atenolol/chlorthalidone is commonly prescribed for the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure). It is also used in patients with heart failure to help improve symptoms and prevent complications such as heart attacks and strokes. This medication works by reducing blood pressure through its dual action as a beta-blocker (atenolol) and a diuretic (chlorthalidone), which increases the flow of urine and decreases fluid retention.

How does atenolol/chlorthalidone work?

atenolol/chlorthalidone works through two different mechanisms of action. Atenolol is a beta-blocker that works by blocking the action of certain chemicals in the body, such as adrenaline, thereby reducing heart rate and blood pressure. Chlorthalidone is a diuretic that increases urine production, helping to remove excess fluid from the body and lower blood pressure.

Forms of atenolol/chlorthalidone available

atenolol/chlorthalidone is available in the form of oral tablets.

Dosage of atenolol/chlorthalidone

The dosage of atenolol/chlorthalidone may vary depending on the individual’s condition, medical history, and response to the medication. It is important to follow the recommended dosage instructions the healthcare provider provides.

Directions for atenolol/chlorthalidone use

atenolol/chlorthalidone should be taken exactly as directed by the healthcare provider. The medication is usually taken orally, with or without food. It is important to take atenolol/chlorthalidone consistently and continue the prescribed treatment course. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is close to the time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. Store at room temperature away from moisture, heat, and light.

Drug Interactions

  • Lithium: atenolol/chlorthalidone may increase the levels of lithium in your blood, increasing the risk of side effects. It is important to monitor lithium levels closely if you are taking both medications
  • Digoxin: Co-administration with atenolol/chlorthalidone can increase digoxin levels in the blood, potentially causing adverse effects. Regular monitoring of digoxin levels is recommended
  • Other antihypertensive drugs: Combining atenolol/chlorthalidone with other antihypertensive medications can further lower your blood pressure, which may result in dizziness or fainting. Close monitoring and adjustment of dosages may be necessary
  • Taking NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) along with atenolol/chlorthalidone can reduce its antihypertensive effect and increase the risk of kidney problems. It is advised to use NSAIDs cautiously while on this medication and inform your doctor about any new symptoms
  • Concurrent use of certain anti-diabetic medicines like insulin or oral hypoglycemic agents with atenolol/chlorthalidone might mask signs and symptoms of low blood sugar. Regular monitoring for glucose control is essential when using these combinations

  • If you have asthma or shortness of breath, use caution when taking atenolol/chlorthalidone as it may worsen your symptoms
  • Atenolol, one of the components of this medication, can lower heart rate and worsen any existing heart block. Heart block refers to a condition where the electrical signals are in your heart
  • Individuals with diabetes mellitus should monitor their blood sugar levels closely while on this medication to prevent any fluctuations
  • People with gout or high uric acid levels should be aware that atenolol/chlorthalidone can potentially increase these levels and trigger a gout attack

Allergic reactions can range from mild symptoms like skin rash or itching to severe reactions like trouble breathing or swelling of the face, lips, or tongue. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience any signs of an allergic reaction

Use of atenolol/chlorthalidone during pregnancy and breastfeeding
