Discussions that mention atenolol

High & Low Blood Pressure board

My Dr. took me off of atenolol and then I was on Micardis for a few weeks but I didn't like the way I felt with that medication (40 mg) Now I am taking lisinapril (20 mg) but I am experiencing a rapid pulse rate off and on during the day. I noticed that after eating dinner it seems to be more rapid. Could this be an after affect of the other two blood pressure medications? I was on atenolol for approx 4 years.

Welcome to the boards!

Hard to say because we don't know more...depends on how and when you disco'd the other meds. I dropped atenolol overnight but exerienced symptoms for at least a month afterwards.

You might want to read the package insert (and check other sources) to see if they say anything about your symptoms for lisinopril.
