Can no longer tolerate atenolol after 15 years.

So I have been taking atenolol for 15 for heart pelps and high blood pressure . I always would take 50mg every day in the morning . This last July I noticed I would start to get real dizzy so I cut it in half take 25 mg in the morning 25 before bed. Now I cant even take half cause I get so dizzy I have a pulse oximeter I have clocked my pulse at 42 beats a min.
The doc changed my meds to coreg but i find I get more pelps and its not helping lower my blood pressure . My hearts feels funny kind of shaky weak I have had ecg's several. Cardiac blood test chest xrays all normal I just dont know what to do .

Re: Can no longer tolerate atenolol after 15 years.

When a person's health problem and/or heart disease symptoms change, it isn't usually because a long time medicine has stopped working; it is because a person's health and/or heart disease has gotten worse and/or more complicated, IMHO.
