Discussions that mention atenolol

Open to All Other Health Topics board

I also have mildly high blood pressure but take Atenolol so I can relate to you on that score.

On your other issue, my roommate took Lipitor for awhile and complained about the exact same aches and pains you are eluding too and the doctor finally had to take him off of it. I still remember him having this long, sad look on his face while he was standing outside and when I asked him what was wrong he replied "I don't feel well at all and I ache all over...I don't think I'm long for this world".

Finally, after some "detective work" we figured maybe it was the Lipitor and sure enough, once the doctor took him off of it, he was back to his old self again.

I can't comment, however, on wether or not it can drive your BP up but you may want to discuss this with your doctor pretty quick.
