Atenolol is a beta-blocker. Atenolol was developed as a replacement for propanolol in the treatment of hypertension.
Propranolol is known to readily cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB) into the brain, causing side-effects such as depression and nightmares; atenolol was specifically developed to be unable to pass through the blood-brain barrier in order to prevent this effect.
