Hi! I was wondering if anyone here as any experience with Atenolol? I have high blood pressure and have recently had to switch to this medicine because of a bad reaction to an ACE inhibitor. Thanks for any info!

Re: Atenolol

I took it for about a year or year and a half. I did not have any terrible side effects other than a little fatigue/lethargy and there are sexual side effects for males (lower quality erections).

There is another medicine called Diovan which is a cousin to the ACE's (I couldn't take ACE's either--sore muscles, fatigue, etc.). I take Diovan and I have no problems of any kind. You might want to try that.

Good luck!
