Interactions of Aten 50 MG

Interactions with other medicines

  • Certain medicines can interact with Aten 50 tablet or this medicine itself can affect the way other medicines work.
  • Tell your doctor about all the medicines, supplements, and herbals you are currently taking or might take to avoid any possible interaction.
  • Concomitant use of the Aten 50 tablet along with medicines of class calcium channel blockers Verapamil, diltiazem, and nifedipine (for high blood pressure or chest pain) should be avoided.
  • Concomitant therapy with dihydropyridines, e.g. nifedipine, may increase the risk of low blood pressure and cardiac failure.
