Heart Disease Home > Tenormin Side Effects
Other Possible Side EffectsAfter medications are approved and are in use by the general public, healthcare providers may voluntarily report side effects. This information may point to possible side effects that were not seen in clinical trials. However, it is difficult (if not impossible) to tell how frequently such side effects occur or even if they are actual side effects, since they are reported voluntarily, and since the "side effects" could be coincidental. These reported side effects are known as "postmarketing experience."
Possible Tenormin side effects reported in postmarketing experience include but are not limited to:
- An increase in liver enzymes
- Allergic reactions
- Impotence, also known as erectile dysfunction or ED (see Atenolol and Impotence)
- Peyronie's disease
- Worsening of psoriasis
- Reversible hair loss (see Atenolol and Hair Loss)
- Low blood sugar (see Atenolol and Low Blood Sugar)
- Vision problems
- Dry mouth
- Raynaud's phenomenon
- Unexplained rash
- Dry eyes (see Atenolol and Dry Eyes).
You may experience some or none of the Tenormin side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will develop side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the drug, or if something "just does not seem right." While the problem may not be a side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat it.
