Atenolol Use During Pregnancy

Ok. So I am about 3 weeks pregnant and taking 50mg of Atenolol once a day. Two family doctors heavily discourage use of Atenolol during pregnancy. I have tried switching in the past, but I dont respond well to other high blood pressure meds. I called my OB's office and spoke to her nurse, and she said that Atenolol is commonly used during pregnancy, however my OB says she can't control my BP meds, that my regular MD has to do that. My OB is considered one of the best in the OKC area, but who do I believe. I am not having much luck finding anything on the interent about any known cases of birth defects due to atenolol use, but that does not mean anything. Anyone here use atenolol during their entire pregnancy.

Re: Atenolol Use During Pregnancy

The only beta blocker that my cardiologist said was safe during pregnancy was toprol. He wouldnt even try me on the other ones. I am sorry I don't have anymore info for you. You may have better luck on the blood pressure or heart boards.
Goodluck
Jen
