Discussions that mention atenolol

High & Low Blood Pressure board


Hello dear ones,

My doctor wants to start me on a beta blocker due to tachycaria. In the past, I was on atenolol and seemed to tolerate it OK. However.... now, even on only 12.5 mgs, I have dizziness and extreme nausea. Can anyone suggest a beta blocker with perhaps less side effects? Maybe there is one that is generally easier to tolerate than others?

Any tips from those with experience is greatly appreciated.

Thanks so very much.

Blessings to all,
Sunny
