Discussions that mention atenolol

Open to All Other Health Topics board


I suffer from ocassional bouts of depression, OCD, anxiety, etc but they are usually fairly mild. However,over the past 5-6 days I have been feeling very foggy-headed, sleepy and all of the things which I once really enjoyed doing I could care less about now. I look at my website and think "I should really work on that today" and then I just sit back in my chair and think "ah, what difference will it make?". I just can't get interested or motivated in anything and everything seems like a big effort. I stay up 1/2 the night and then sleep until noon and sometimes I just lay in bed trying to get to sleep but feel like I'm wide awake.

I went to the doctor yesterday about my foggy-headedness, lack of energy and other symptoms and he pointed out that my blood pressure has been pretty high (140/90 or higher at times) over the last few years and insisted that I stay on my meds (atenolol and hydrochlorothiazide). He also said that my sinuses were swollen due to my allergic rhinitis and put me on Azythromycin.

I just feel, weak, tired, foggy-headed, sleepy and I can't even think clearly half the time. Most of the time it feels like I'm buggy-eyed too.

Any idea what this could be?
