Tenormin Side Effects

Common Tenormin Side Effects

Tenormin has been studied extensively in people with high blood pressure, people with angina, and people who have recently had a heart attack. In these clinical studies, side effects are always documented and compared to those that occur in a similar group of people not taking the medicine. This way, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they occur, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.
Based on these studies, the most common side effects of Tenormin include:
  • Tiredness -- in up to 26 percent of people
  • Low blood pressure (hypotension) -- up to 25 percent
  • Slow heart rate (bradycardia) -- up to 18 percent
  • Dizziness -- up to 13 percent
  • Cold hands or feet -- up to 12 percent
  • Depression -- up to 12 percent (see Atenolol and Depression)
  • Shortness of breath -- up to 6 percent
  • Fatigue -- up to 6 percent.
Other common side effects (occurring in 2 to 4 percent of people) include but are not limited to:
  • Leg pain
  • A decrease in blood pressure when going from a lying-down or sitting position to standing
  • A spinning sensation (vertigo)
  • Lightheadedness
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea
  • Lethargy
  • Drowsiness
  • Increased dreaming.
