Years, change tools: Atenolol Does Not have the best track record for helping reverse LVH; ACEI & carvedilol, along with adjusting to keep low normal BP (such as the values you quoted) does. For ACEI, use ramipril because rarely ↓es BP much, even at 10 mg/day. Adjust Carvedilol up slowly, from very low dose. Also check BP when under emotional stress; use more accurate BP gauge (Hg best or Omron 10 Plus) & graph values
