I was prescribed Atenolol for high blood pressure, which I took religiously for 8 weeks, which resulted in all manner of unusual side effects, including severe constipation and mild depression, but the side-effect which prompted my refusal to continue with this drug, was the sudden emergence of a dreadful rash similar to measles - and like three times as uncomfortable!! Preferring the option of the risk of a premature visit to the mortuary, I discarded them, and haven't felt better for months!!
