What is Atenolol Compounded?

Atenolol is a beta-blocker used to treat certain heart conditions such as arrhythmias. It may also be used to lower blood pressure and treat enlarged hearts in cats. Compounding is beneficial in instances where a specific dosage is unavailable or in different forms to make it easier to dose your pet. Atenolol requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:
  • Treats cardiovascular diseases and conditions (hypertension, coronary heart disease, arrhythmias, and angina (chest pain))
  • Also, lowers blood pressure and treats enlarged hearts in cats
  • May reduce risk of heart complications following a heart attack
How it Works:

Atenolol is a beta-blocker that works by affecting the response to nerve impulses in certain parts of the body. As a result, the heart beats slower and decreases blood pressure. When your pet's blood pressure is lowered, the amount of blood and oxygen to the heart is increased.

Cautions:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given any prescription or over-the-counter medicines, as they may interact with Atenolol. If your pet experiences any unusual side effects contact your veterinarian.

How to Use
Directions:
  • Atenolol is a beta-blocker available by prescription and used in dogs, cats, and ferrets to treat certain heart conditions such as arrhythmias.
  • Atenolol is not FDA approved for use in veterinary medicine; however, it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to prescribe this medication for dogs and cats.
  • Atenolol is also used to lower blood pressure and to treat enlarged hearts in cats.
Tip:

Do not stop giving atenolol abruptly unless you are directed to do so by the veterinarian. Stopping abruptly may make the condition worse. Atenolol may cause drowsiness.

What is a Compounded Medication?

A compounded medication is the creation of a particular medication to fit the unique needs of a patient, including changing the form of the medication (e.g., from a solid pill to a liquid) for a variety reasons (e.g., to make it easier to take, to avoid a non-essential ingredient, to obtain the exact dose needed, adding favorite flavors).

If you are having difficulty giving your pet prescribed medication or need to find a discontinued medication, 1-800-PetMeds offers compounding services on select medications. We can prepare the following: (1) custom strength quantities of a medication (as capsules, liquid, chewable tablets, or transdermal (absorbed through the skin); (2) dosage forms to mask bitter or unpleasant taste (such as capsules or chewable tablets that can also be flavored); (3) dosage forms to make it easier to dose your pet such as a transdermal or liquid (that can also be flavored); and (4) discontinued products such as cisapride or DES.

Q&A

Is this administered orally as a liquid?

Our cat currently takes Atenolol 12.5 mg/mm chicken flavored liquid twice daily given with a syringe. Is this the same medication as your Atenolol compounded?
Asked by: mainelady
It sounds like you are giving your cat an oral suspension or liquid. We only compound the atenolol in the transdermal form, which means that it is to be given to your pet by rubbing it on the inside of their ears.

Atenolol tab vs. transdermal

My vet gave me a script for 25mg atenolol tabs for my cat. Can I order the transdermal form? Or do I need to get a new script to order a different form?
Asked by: Ruprissy
You need to get a new script from your vet for the transdermal form.

What if your cat is already on a transdermal?

My cat is already taking a transdermal for hyperthyroidism. Can she also use a transdermal for the atenolol? She is currently on a liquid suspension for the atenolol.
