Has anyone on Atnolol had a reaction in the sun on this medication. I went to the pool on Sunday for a couple of hours with sunblock on and by that eveing I was itching at my ankles and wrists. I love the pool is this something I am going to always have till I am off this awful drug?
Lots of meds can give you reactions to the sun. I am taking a calcium channel blocker and clonidine and claritin for allergies. I went out in the sun a few weeks ago and was out longer than I intended with no sunblock. Later that evening my legs turned bright red, not with an over all sunburn, but it looked like tiny red pinpricks densely covering my legs.
Thanks for the replies, I to have alergies and couldnt do the skin test because of the atenolol. I am going to try the sun again with more sunblock and hopefully once i get a base tan I will be fine. I dont want to change my everyday activities for this darn drug. Wish me luck.
