I still think since starting Atenolol I have gotten palps. I never had them before I took this medication. I only have High blood pressure and have tried several medications and the docs choose this awful one. I think I am use to having a higer heart rate (90BPM) and have had that since my 20's. Now that it is 75 I think I feel these palps now. So in answer to your question I say yes. Only because this is what happened to me.
