Tertatolol (Artex, Artexal, Prenalex) is a medication in the class of beta blockers, used in the treatment of high blood pressure. It was discovered by the French pharmaceutical company Servier and is marketed in Europe.[1]

Tertatolol has also been shown to act as a 5-HT1A receptor antagonist, similarly to pindolol.[2][3]
