I wanted to try beta blockers so my cardiologist put me on 25 mg of atenolol once a day in the morning.I can play tennis etc.with almost no extra beats,though I am slightly tired and have mild light headedness.The thing that concerns me is that I get headaches,for most of the day and they abate only at night ,I presume when the drug is wearing off.Are headaches common,and how long should I put up with them before I quit the atenolol,because right now the trade off is not worth it.
1. by taking the same mg atenolol as you did metoprolol you doubled your dosage of effective beta blocker.

It took me a while to find a drug (Atacand) that worked and didn't give me any side effects (cough, insomnia, etc.).

I don't really notice fatigue issues, but occasionally I get kind of woozy standing up and I can hear my heart beat it my ears.

Regarding the Atenolol vs Metoprolol, Atenolol has no extended release formula, so the effect hits more immediately than what is the case with Metoprolol. On the other hand, half life is far longer (I believe I've commented this on another post). When taking Metoprolol 25 mg, it resolves through 20 hours and the peak "concentration" (compared to taking a non-extended release pill) will be approx. 6 mg.
It's weird i feel PVC's in my chest and PAC's in my neck. I am now taking atenolol which has helped though i still have quite a few PVC's. I am calmer and less aware of my heartbeat than before. I have always felt like i had too much adrenalin in my body, as i also have panic attacks. I was just doing some research and even though i have been told that everything i have is harmless, i have come across information that somewhat suggests otherwise. Does anyone here know which is true?
There is mild prominence of the hilar vessels, suggestive of mild congestion.” She was recruited into a Warfarin vs Apixaban double blind clinical trial & started the treatment on Aug-4, 2009.
