Re: Dizzy on Atenolol
If you get so dizzy as to possibly affect your ability to drive or even walk, you need to stress to your doctor this is unacceptable, and you can't afford to wait to see if it passes, lest you have a car wreck or fall and seriously injure yourself in the mean time.
There are other drugs for tachycardia, such as digitalis, calcium channel blockers, beta-blockers and other drugs that slow the heartbeat, as well as blood thinners. There are a whole slew of drugs, some dependent on the type of tachycardia. You can look them up on the web.
So the point is, you don't have to take a beta blocker, if they give you unacceptable side effects.
