To assess the influence of chronic atenolol therapy on the cardiovascular responses to isometric exercise, we evaluated the behavior of blood pressure, heart rate and double product in 75 hypertensive patients treated with atenolol 100 mg once daily for 6 months. During the 1st month of treatment, both systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) increases rose more than before treatment. SBP increase to handgrip became lower than before treatment on the 2nd months of… CONTINUE READING
