      How it works

      It works by changing the body’s response to some nerve impulses, especially in the heart. Atenolol decreases the heart’s need for blood and oxygen and therefore reduces the amount of work the heart has to do. It also widens the blood vessels in the body, causing blood pressure to fall. It also helps the heart beat more regularly.
