(Atenolol can also cause serious fatigue but I'm gathering that yours just started with the addition of Maxide? )
Are you saying you've lost 8 lbs in just a few days? I can understand losing some water-weight with Maxide, but 8 lbs is a lot. You are likely losing electrolytes esp. potassium.
Often side effects do subside, but you'll need another week or two to find out.
I have to tell you that Maxide sledge-hammered me (extreme fatigue and weakness) and I had to discontinue it.
Definitely let your doctor know how you are feeling.
Yeah, I went from 222 on Thursday when I started taking it to 216 this morning.. Wait, that's six pounds.
No feeling extreme fatigue, just a little woozy for a couple hours a day.
Had a touch of a headache tonight and took a warm bath to try to relax. My BP was like 140/92 with an elevated heart rate when I got out and for the last hour or so since I've gotten out of the tub...
