Re: how long do side effects from atenolol last
I just realized reading your post again.
I was diagnosed with hypertension when I was about 54. And until then my bp had always been okay---EXCEPT in my first pregnancy when I was about 27 I had pre-eclampsia.
I mentioned that to my doctor at one time and he said well the fact that I had high blood pressure in my pregnancy made it likely that I would have hypertension later in life.
In any case, mine seems to be well controlled with medications--I also try to take care of myself, exercise, eat well, etc.
Keep us posted, okay?
