Re: how long do side effects from atenolol last

Hi Guys,
Well i went back to the doctors today and last time i went a week ago my bp was 150/115 and today it was 165/104 so the top one has gone up and the bottom down, my doctor has put me on coversyl 2.5 mg a day then if im ok on that ill go up to 5mgs.
I know a lot of my fears are anxiety and i have to try and get over it by the morning as i have to start them in the morning,
I know i shouldnt look up the side effects but i know i will even though my son is on the same one only his is 10mg.
I said to my doctor its ironic i gave up smoking 12 weeks ago and go to the gym 5 times a week now i have high bp and have put on 4 kilos lol
If any one has any great advice i gladly accept it.
Thanks heaps for all the kind words
