Re: Hot Flashes on Atenolol
I have the same symptoms, too warm, especially when moving a bit (walking), or too cold when I am still. I also get very warm when I am sleeping under the covers; I take them off and am freezing. These symptoms, as well as others have become progressively worse in the last few months. I also have joint and muscle stiffness and my skin has become very sensitive. At times, it feels like someone has rubberbands aroung my wrists and ankles. Also, I can't seem to get my hands and feet to a normal temprature, too hot or too cold.
I tried gradually going off the medicine a few weeks ago, but my heart began racing, so at this point, I am stuck until I go back to the doctors in a few weeks.
Funny thing is, I was on 200 mg/day for awhile and never felt this bad!
