Doctor recently took me off 25mg of atenenol, and immediatly placed me on 20mg of lisinopril. for one week I was dizzy, heart rate of 100 or more each morning, short of breath, very weak, and blood pressure increased gradually each day. After several complaints, he then placed me on 10 mg, and 50 mg of atenenol, is there any other beta blocker to take place of atenenol, it causes my legs to cramp and feet to swell.
Is Atenolol a good option for treating Angina I am currently being treated for high blood pressure and recently my cardioligist prescribed Atenolol 25 mg in the morning because of chest pains I was having and my blood pressure was not lowering enough
I have been taking atenolol for the past 18mths or so, just tapered off it. This was part of my tx for a post partum cardiomyopathy. I have found a big improvement in the asthma symptoms I deal with and I know this can be a side effect of the med. As far as it contributing to water retention overall, not sure that makes total sense, but betablockers can be tricky beasts and it would not entirely suprise me if it was a side effect in some people.
Lisinopril can cause nausea, headaches, anxiety, insomnia, drowsiness, nasal congestion and sexual dysfunction. Lisinopril should be stopped if there are symptoms or signs of an allergic reaction including feelings of swelling of the face, lips, tongue or throat. Severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) and hives occasionally occur. Rarely, lisinopril may cause a drop in red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
The LIFE study demonstrated that losartan was significantly superior to atenolol in the primary prevention of adverse cardiovascular events (myocardial infarction or stroke), with a significant reduction in cardiovascular morbidity and mortality for a comparable reduction in blood pressure". The generic for losartan is cozar, and medication is about $10.00 for 90 day supply.
well, Ive posted on here a few times, and everyone has been helpful, so here goes again. I have been put on atenolol 2xday @25mgs each. I dont drink, smoke, or stay up late, but the doc says that I have a mild cardiac wall thickening, and a mildly regurgitating aortic valve, so I take the atenolol and 10mg of lisinopril per day with a baby asprin. Here is the issue: i take one in the morning at 7 and at night at 7.

Long story short. Diastolic murmur due to dilated aorta, 4.5 cm. no aneurysm or dissection, also hypertrophy of septum at top margin with potential occlusion of maitral valve. On atenolol for a month to reduce contractility and rate in attempt to decrease septal hypertrophy. I'm a long distance cyclist and notice that my exercise tolerance has decreased and having slow progress building new muscle when doing pushups, etc. Question ; is atenolol the best choice for this condition?
I am on 25 mg atenolol daily for pvc's/pac's. I still have them on 25mg. not as many, but they are still strong and come back to back. I am also on 5mg lisinopril for a mild cardiac wall thickening. Shouldn't a beta blocker stop these things? Doc says that he could raise the dose, but my pulse will vary from 55-69 resting on the atenolol at 25mgs. I don't want it any lower. Suggestions?
smi, thanks for the post. 1) could the ringing and "jittery" sensation be caused from the Bradycardia as opposed anxiety or a side-effect of the Atenolol? It could be. It may be reasonable to stop the atenolol. There are other blood pressure medications that could be effective such as diuretics and ace inhibitors. It might be reasonable if your symptoms are not overly severe to stop all medications to get rid of the symptoms and start one at a time back.
Has anyone ever taken Flecainide and Atenolol together? My EP has prescribed that to me 50 mg of Flecainide twice a day and 25 mg Atenolol once a day in the evening. It really seems to be helping, but I am scared of the long term effects of these drugs. I have also been givin a 30 day event monitor and haven't even had to send in much. A few minor skips etc. No major runs or Afib to speak of. The EP mentioned trying this for a month and then a possible Ablation.
I was advised by my doctor to change from 25 mg (once per day) Atenolol for moderate Hypertension (which was not reducing BP well) to Lisinopril (5mg). I was on 25 mg once a day of Atenolol. Through some miscommunication with my Doctor, I didn't correctly understand that I was to reduce dosage gradually, so I went pretty well straight off it and started experiencing arrhythmias...not really so much fast heart beat, but irregular (PVC's?, ectopic beats?
Yes I read everything I can about this so I can talk to my doctor and be 100% informed about my health. I am taking Lisinopril for my Hypertension and Also the Atenolol.
The only reason to take the blood pressure medications at different times during the day are if people are having problems with their blood pressure dropping too low when taking both together (usually manifests as dizziness upon standing or changing position) or if they are having issues with blood pressure control throughout the day.
The most disturbing is the short breath/pressure in the center of my chest. Is this chest pain or is it centered in the lungs since Atenolol supposedly constricts bronchioles? Otherwise, my BP lowers to 115-120/65-70 with a heart rate of 55-65. I am a 41 y/o white male 167lbs. Thanks for any advice or expeience.
Then, the doctor added Atenolol 25mg in addition to Lisinopril 20mg. So I take both Lisinopril 20mg in the morning and 25mg Atenolol daily. But suddenly I started experiencing falling due to legs losing all their strength and I just fall and have to crawl for help. Legs do not hurt or anything, they just lose strength. So with arms. I can't even hold a drug bottle because my arms don't have any power. With Lisinopril only, I never experienced this ever before.
Drugs, atenolol, lisinopril, moduretic, amlodipine. have not been regular. 37 yr old man last week I decided to go jogging as part of my weight loss plan, I had been cycling and playing table tennis for a while now.
6 monhs later he had another stent and then in a month 2 two more. A couple of them they said artery was 60 or 70% but while they were in there they decided to stent it in one place he was having spasms. The last 2 were des. About 4 weeks ago he started having some chest pain on exertion but it would usually go away so he wasn't worried at first, last week they got worse he was scheduled for stress test, he couldn't finish that they did a cath and most of his lad was blocked, Dr.
I am an occasional drinker, and I smoke intermittently. I have high blood pressure, which is being regulated with atenolol, lisinopril, and HCTZ. About five years ago, I began having incidents where my heart would start to beat harder and faster than normal. I was working nights in a grocery store at the time and I used the blood pressure test machine there the first couple of times it happened. First time my BP was like 180/110 and my pulse was at least 170. I freaked out and went to the ER.
Hello all My doctor prescribed me Lisinopril 40mg when my blood pressure was 170/105 at hospital about 6 months ago. I had dizziness (electricity going through my brain feeling) and fatigue, hard time breathing before the doctor's visit, but even after the medication, the symptoms continued. But, my blood pressure was regulated to around 110/80. Then, slowly, my blood pressure started coming down even more to 100/80, 90/70, then 80/60.
Lisinopril (Blood Pressure) Atenolol (Heart Rate) Valium (for anxiety) Insulin injections (Humulin R, N) Basically, his behavior can go from 'normal' (calm, not agitated, clear-headed, etc.) to what I am calling "Altered" in a matter of minutes. During these episodes his behavior will deteriorate where he will gradually start acting like he is intoxicated, even though he has not been drinking.

if lisinopril and cozaar aren't working to lower bp in combo with atenolol and hctz, in fact either causes higher bp and not feeling well, what is another possible choice
I am 51 yo WF, over wgt by 70 lbs, life-long non-smoker, light social drinker (wine maybe once or twice a week. Stressful jobs and personal life for past 15-20 years. At age 48, found to have HBP of 185/105--during a clinical trial study evaluation for anxiety disorders (double-blind, placebo-controlled study of klonopin). Study coordinator suggested it might be stress-induced. After the study, problem persisted.
Is this a symptom of the A-fib or the meds. I am currently on Diltiazm. Lisinopril, Atenolol. Thanks in advance for your help and it's good to see a sight where you can talk to other people and MDs at the same time. Greg P.
High blood pressure, or hypertension , is defined in an adult as a blood pressure greater than or equal to 140 mm Hg systolic pressure or greater than or equal to 90 mm Hg diastolic pressure. Blood pressure is measured in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). High blood pressure directly increases the risk of coronary heart disease (which leads to heart attack) and stroke (or brain attack), especially along with other risk factors.

How prevalent is it for some paitents to be prescribed Flecainide for PVC's by their doctors / cardiologists and told to go home and take their first dose and I'll see you this time next year, as I was told; instead, of having the patient admitted for hospital or clinical observation / testing in order to see how their body responds to it first? In my case, I declined the Flecainide for various reasons.
