I was put on Atenolol 25mg for moderate HBP 157/95. After about two weeks my pressure would lower to 112/82 and then spike during the night to 117/110. It would also spike during the day at work. My Dr. increased the amount to 50mg per day. After one week of being dizzy to where I couldnt walk without being careful and so fatigued that my back muscles gave out and caused my upper spine to compress to where I couldnt catch my breath. My pressure would still spike to 170/105. I was put on Procardia on top of this and I nearly passed out just walking. I am now on 25mg Atenolol again plus procardia but I am still weak as a cat. Anyone know of a better medication or Doctor???
