Re: Does atenolol cause lung problems?
Sorry to hear about your diagnosis of pulmonary fibrosis. I certainly wish you the best of luck and recovery.
You could ask your doctor if he would consider prescribing a different class of medication (like a "calcium channel blocker" or "ace inhibitor", etc) to replace the "beta blocker" atenolol. A replacement medication might make the withdrawal from atenolol somewhat easier.
You would then be able to see if your pulmonary fibrosis gradually gets better after you stop taking the atenolol.
