How does atenolol/chlorthalidone work?

atenolol/chlorthalidone is a combination of two different medications that both work to lower blood pressure. Atenolol is a cardioselective beta blocker. It works by blocking chemicals that attach to receptors on the heart. This slows down your heart rate and lowers your blood pressure. Chlorthalidone is a thiazide-like diuretic (water pill) that makes you urinate more. It works in the kidneys to remove extra water and salts, which then lowers blood pressure and swelling.

Effects of other drugs, drug classes and over-the-counter products on atenolol/chlorthalidone

Effects of other drugs, drug classes and over-the-counter products on atenolol/chlorthalidone

The following medications may interact with atenolol/chlorthalidone:

  • atenolol/chlorthalidone may potentiate the action of other
  • antihypertensive agents used concomitantly. Patients treated with atenolol/chlorthalidone plus a catecholamine depletor (eg reserpine) should be closely observed for evidence of
  • hypotension and/or marked bradycardia which may produce vertigo, syncope or postural hypotension.
  • Calcium channel blockers may also have an additive effect when given with atenolol/chlorthalidone
  • Disopyramide is a Type I antiarrhythmic drug with potent negative inotropic and chronotropic effects Disopyramide has been associated with severe bradycardia, asystole and heart failure when administered with beta blockers
  • Amiodarone is an antiarrhythmic agent with negative
  • chronotropic properties that may be additive to those seen with beta blockers
  • Thiazides may decrease arterial responsiveness to
  • norepinephrine. This diminution is not sufficient to preclude
  • the therapeutic effectiveness of norepinephrine. Thiazides
  • may increase the responsiveness to tubocurarine.
  • Concomitant use of prostaglandin synthase inhibiting drugs
  • eg, indomethacin, may decrease the hypotensive effects of beta blockers.
  • Lithium generally should not be given with diuretics because they reduce its renal clearance and add a high risk of lithium toxicity. Read prescribing information for lithium preparations before use of such preparations with atenolol/chlorthalidone
  • Beta blockers may exacerbate the rebound hypertension which can follow the withdrawal of clonidine
  • Both digitalis glycosides and beta-blockers slow trioventricular conduction and decrease heart rate
  • Concomitant use can increase the risk of bradycardia
