How Does Tenormin (Atenolol) Work?

Tenormin is in a class of medications known as beta-blockers. These medications help with the regulation of blood flow, working by interacting with B1-adrenergic receptors in the heart.

This interaction blocks the production of certain natural chemicals in the body, such as epinephrine. This, in turn, causes a decrease in the heart rate, lowering the workload that the heart takes on to pump blood.
