Try not to ever take the stuff. I totally stopped taking 50mgs of Atenolol almost a month ago and I am still having higher than normal blood pressure and my heart has speed up so much I almost want to start taking it again. I'm trying hard not to but it is so annoying trying to get this stuff out of your system. I have been taking Beta blockers for years and it seem that it never gets out of your system. If you haven't started, DON'T.

I've been taking beta blockers for 4 years and don't have a problem.

I'd be more worried about the other meds you're taking than the beta blocker.

Sorry, I don't take atenolol. I take metoprolol 25 mg 2 times a day. This is considered low dose.
Both are beta 1 adrenergic receptor blockers. The side effects of both these drugs are similar except that atenolol doesn't cross the blood brain barrier so it doesn't interfere with your sleep.

In my case, I have been getting dreams every day since I take it, except for a 2 days. They aren't nightmares, but I do hate dreaming.
