Discussions that mention tenoretic

Stump,

TENORMIN is just atenolol. I think he may have been referring to TENORETIC which includes the VERY potent diuretic, chlorthalidone.

I like and share his theory that weakening the heartbeat is not a good way to treat people of a "tender age.":D In fact, if one is ever so unfortunate to have a heart attack, a beta-blocker actually interferes with one of the important mechanisms for keeping the heart beating. Ain't THAT a kick in the pants?

I think the older doctors were educated by medical schools and the younger ones are educated by the pharmaceutical manufacturers...that might account for a lot of their prescribing methods. :jester:
I'd love to see a comparison in NORVASC prescribing between young and old doctors.
