Question Atenolol

I had seen your discussion on atenolol and wanted to ask if anyone knew how badly it can affect you.I have been on it for about 6 months I'd say.
Ever since I have been put on it it seems like I can feel the pressure in my head more lately then before.It took the pessure down for the first few months,and everything seemed ok,but the past,i'd say,two months it has been border lined to the number the doc told me to come back on if it went over.I also noticed I am always tired. How badly will it hurt me if the number did get over a certain number?

thank you for any help you can give me on atenolol.

Re: Atenolol

You are not the only one. I was switched from 100 MGS of Toprol to 100 MGS of Atenolol about 8 months ago. Atenolol was supposed to cause less side-effects. It actually causes a lot more in me. I feel the pressure in my head, even when my B/P is really good. I feel lethargic many days, it has caused GI Problems, depression+. I would try to talk to your doctor, but good luck with them switching it.
