 2  For anxiety and blood pressure Chest palpitation, high tryglyceride, always felt tired It lowered my bp about 6-8 points but seriously didn't understand the chest discomfort and the elevated cholesterol. I walked daily and ate super healthy while on this med. I only took 12.5 daily and still experienced neg. symptoms. I'm looking for something not this scary. It's been 3 months and my chest palpitations went away so I know it had to be this med. F 52 365 days

 2  High BP I have had bad reactions to other BP meds, after taking them for some time. I was prescribed Atenolol (25mg) two years ago and felt fine for many months. First I started getting a stiff neck, muscle spasms and aching all over - and more recently tight chest and unable to breathe properly. Was taken to A&E where Dr says sinus rhythm is irregular. I'm sure the drugs are causing this and now waiting to see GP. From all I've read here, it seems many others are having similar experiences? ... Didn't really have any problems until I started BP meds three years ago and feel like my general fitness has deteriorated since. M 53 2 days

 1  Palpitations/anxiety Weak, bad diarrhea, lifeless/depressed. Unable to finish sleeping. Alters personality. Zero libido. Terrible medication for people susceptible to mental illness, it's very effective on the heart rate only. If you're already lethargic and suffering depression, stay completely away from Atenolol!

 1  Tacacardia Severe uncontrolable diarrhea. More heart arithmias if missed. Seems heart is addicted to this med. Horrific systemic lupus in my left hip. Extreme fatigue. Cant breath due to conjestion thus causing heart palpations. Over time and self analysis i have realized this med is slowly killing me. Been trying to ween off of it but my heart refuses to allow this. Had all the test required including heart catherization. Nothing found! But was still prescribed this med for rapid heart rate. And ofcourse with all the other problems is caused my doctor wants to treat all those with MORE pills! More test. Now shes thinking i may have chrones. No i dont. Its this medication. Never had one issue until this med outside of heart rate that use to be occasional. Now its constant. DO NOT USE THIS ATENOLOL. Side effects come one at a time about 4 to 6 months after you start taking it. Its so slow you dont relate it to this. Until its too late. F 55 3 years

 5  high blood pressure I've noticed reduced physical stamina. Physical activities in general require more effort, ostensibly due to the Atenolol slowing down my heart rate. I haven't found this to be particularly bothersome though. I'll gladly put up with this as the benefits of atenolol far outweigh the risks. This drug has been incredibly effective at reducing my blood pressure from around 190/105 to 118/78. Atenolol has changed my life. I had uncontrolled high blood pressure for years and recently I believe this had really taken a toll on my health. I felt like shit more days than not and eventually I found myself unable to get out of bed. I often slept 15 or more hours a day yet never felt rested. After about one week on Atenolol those symptoms were gone. I have energy again and healthy blood pressure. This medication gave me my life back. F 49 30 days

 2  High blood pressure Used to get somewhat scary heart palpitations.I did not even think the atenolol was responsible until I had been off for a few months.Now itís been 15 years and I have not had a single one since.Used to be about once every couple of weeks. Had a super sex drive until about 45 years old. Asked doctor what it could be.I was told it could be the blood pressure atenolol.I got some of it back after switching meds but lost my sex drive entirely by age 55.I think itís because of the atenolol.I wouldnít take long term if you value your sex drive.when you are younger your hormones and testosterone can power through it.

ATENOLOL  (ATENOLOL):  Atenolol is used with or without other medications to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This medication is also used to treat chest pain (angina) and to improve survival after a heart attack. Atenolol belongs to a class of drugs known as beta blockers. It works by blocking the action of certain natural chemicals in your body, such as epinephrine, on the heart and blood vessels. This effect lowers the heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on the heart.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
