Is there any alternative name for Atopolol?

I have been prescribed a new drug, Atopolol. As I understand it, it is to slow the heartrate. The dosage prescribed is 20 mg twice a day. Can you please advise me of what this drug is, any other name for it and where I might research it? Thank you for your assistance. Donna Hyatt

Dear sir

Recent researches have proved beyond doubt that nebivolol is a good betablocker which have dual effect both on blood pressure and heart.

It decreases both the blood pressure and heart rate and it also cause significant dilatation of the blood vessels by increase the nitric oxide levels.

So I recommend you to consider it instead.

Thanks
