Re: Atenolol & leg swelling
Decreased peripheral circulation is a noted side effect of Atenolol (and any beta blockers). Tho I didn't have swelling, I had pains and poor leg circulation and had to stop beta blocker's completely, due to many adverse side effects.
You can't stop cold turkey, so be sure to get with your doctor if you decide to discontinue and get off gradually.
