This drug has a warning regarding the according of abrupt withdrawal in patients with heart disease.
There are a number of studies that have demonstrated that beta-blockers, such as atenolol, are effective at reducing heart rate, blood pressure, and tremor associated with alcohol withdrawal syndrome.
Tenormin has been in used along with a benzodiazepine drug in the management of acute alcohol withdrawal.
However, beta-blockers alone are not effective in preventing delirium or seizures; therefore, these drugs should be used in addition to benzodiazepines for alcohol withdrawal.
In a study, 61 patients received atenolol, and 59 patients received placebo. Compared with placebo-treated patients, atenolol-treated patients had a significant reduction in the length of hospital stay.
On each treatment day, significantly fewer patients receiving Tenormin required related treatment with benzodiazepines, and patients receiving placebo required a significantly higher daily dose of benzodiazepines.
Among patients who had withdrawal symptoms at the start of the study, vital signs became normal more rapidly in the patients receiving atenolol, and their abnormal behavior and clinical characteristics also resolved more rapidly.
None of the 120 patients in this study developed delirium tremens.
Researchers deduced that atenolol is helpful in the treatment of patients with alcohol withdrawal syndrome.
