Levy, RPh Q: Is there a safer blood pressure pill than atenolol? I heard it is not the best. I haven't had any problems though. Although atenolol is not first-line therapy for blood pressure, it has a lot of other advantages including having a cardio-protective effect.
For instance, I have some type A patients that have difficulty driving on the roads to and from work without getting angry. Every time someone gets angry where they can feel a surge of adrenaline in their body, it puts pressure on the heart. Atenolol is very good at blocking those types of effects on the heart and in some studies has been shown to increase both lifespan and survival rate among people with existing cardiovascular disease. My advice, if you haven't had any problems with the medication, and it performs the role that it is supposed to fill, please continue to take it. If your blood pressure should continue to go up, then you may want to revisit this topic.

For more specific information, consult with your doctor or local pharmacist for guidance based on your health status and current medications, particularly before taking any action.

This is something that you should talk to your doctor about because depending on the levels of the spike, it can be dangerous to your health.

Could this be caused by the atenolol I take? Atenolol Tenormin is a beta-blocker used to treat high blood pressure and other heart conditions. According to the manufacturer, atenolol Tenormin can induce or exacerbate psoriasis.
Discuss this with your health care provider, who may have other treatment options that won't affect your psoriasis. Does it contribute to weight gain? Atenolol Tenormin is a prescription medicine that has been licensed to treat several conditions related to the heart and blood vessels. It's part of a class of drugs called beta blockers. There are a number of possible side effects with atenolol. Gradual weight gain, however, does not appear to be one of them. This data comes from clinical trials that extensively studied atenolol and documented its side effects. However, gradual weight gain has been reported, rarely, with other beta blockers.
Rapid weight gain, on the other hand, is a reported side effect with all beta blockers, including atenolol. One very important point to keep in mind related to weight gain with atenolol is that all beta blockers may worsen congestive heart failure, or in some cases may cause it. If a person is experiencing congestive heart failure, they can often have rapid weight gain over a couple of days. Make sure to contact your health care provider if you notice unexplained weight gain or swelling while taking atenolol. I am very sensitive to medicines. I take half of a 50 mg tablet of atenolol each morning.
Sometimes a refill of this medicine seems a little stronger, and I get mood swings of anxiety and depression. How can I avoid these swings due to the change in strength from batch to batch? Is there a better beta blocker with less change in strength that will give me less side effects? How common is my problem? I have not personally heard of anyone having the same problem as you. It could be possible that with spitting the tablets, some days you are getting more of the medication than others. A tablet cutter can help if you are not already using one. Also, atenolol is available as a 25 mg tablet, which would avoid having to cut it and possibly getting more than 25 mg some days.
It may cost more to take a full 25 mg tablet instead of half a 50 mg.
