Re: Atenolol Question

Since i have been on Atenolol my usually very mild allergies have become pretty bad and constant.

It seems I am allergic to everything lately. I truly believe its the atenolol, for me...

I saw an immunologist who told me I couldn't have a skin test as i could have a severe reaction due to the beta blocker I am on.....

Re: Atenolol Question

Lots of meds can give you reactions to the sun. I am taking a calcium channel blocker and clonidine and claritin for allergies. I went out in the sun a few weeks ago and was out longer than I intended with no sunblock. Later that evening my legs turned bright red, not with an over all sunburn, but it looked like tiny red pinpricks densely covering my legs.

Re: Atenolol Question

I had that on triamaterene with hctz and atenolol but it was no where near as bad as the one with lisinopril.

It was basically a 1-2-3 knock down, ended up with rashes all over my body, lost most of my hair and had such swelling in the legs the dr. sent me for a DVT test.

Re: Atenolol Question

Thanks for the replies, I to have alergies and couldnt do the skin test because of the atenolol. I am going to try the sun again with more sunblock and hopefully once i get a base tan I will be fine. I dont want to change my everyday activities for this darn drug. Wish me luck.
