Dear all,

I am a 38 year old female. I've been pretty healthy up until several months ago, except for borderline blood pressure (usually 139/75 to 145/75)

Several months ago, I starting feeling fatigued and this fatigue culminated in palpitations, BP 180/100, numb, cold extremeties, dizziness and a trip to the emergency room 3 weeks ago.

Since then, I've been put on Atenolol, 25MG daily. This has decreased the palpitations and the blood pressure, but I feel awful. Extremely fatigued all the time, depressed, weak, low pulse rate. Today, my pulse rate went below 50 and I have a doc appointment tomorrow morning. I assume he will switch me to another beta blocker. Could anyone here suggest a beta blocker which may not have the above side effects? My quality of life is seriously affected right now and though I did not feel great prior to starting Atenolol, I felt a lot better than this.

Thanks for any suggestions,

Petra
