Check BP: If you "feel" like your heart rate is faster when lying down at night, check your pulse then. The atenolol should keep your heart from beating too fast. If it is faster than usual, contact your physician. The anti-inflammatories you take may interfere with the blood pressure medications so be careful with those.
