Tenormin is licensed to treat high blood pressure, angina, and other conditions related to the heart and blood vessels. The medicine works by blocking a specific type of beta receptor -- this lowers the heart rate and blood pressure and decreases the workload of the heart. Regular use can decrease the risks that accompany long-term high blood pressure. Possible side effects include depression, dizziness, and tiredness.
