Amlodipine + Atenolol

CVnor A: Each tablet contains Amlodipine Besilate BP equivalent to
Amlodipine 5 mg and Atenolol BP 50 mg.

CVnor A is a fixed dose combination of Amlodipine and Atenolol. Amlodipine
is a dihydropyridine calcium antagonist that inhibits the transmembrane influx of
calcium ions into vascular smooth muscle and cardiac muscle; it has a greater
effect on vascular smooth muscle cells than cardiac muscle cells. Amlodipine is
a peripheral vasodilator that acts directly on vascular smooth muscle to cause a
reduction in peripheral vascular resistance and reduction in blood pressure.
Amlodipine reduces tone, decreases coronary vasoreactivity and lowers
cardiac demand by reducing after load. Atenolol is a cardio-selective beta-blocker. It does not possess any membrane-stabilizing action. The cardio selectivity is dose related. Atenolol causes a reduction in blood pressure by lowering cardiac output, decreasing the plasma renin activity and sympathetic outflow from CNS. Atenolol also causes a reduction in myocardial oxygen
demand by virtue of its negative inotropic and negative chronotropic effect.

Hypertension is not controlled by monotherapy, patients with angina pectoris and hypertension as co-existing diseases; post myocardial infarction, refractory angina pectoris where nitrate therapy has failed.

Dose & Administration
