It depends...: It depends on the indication for atenolol. If atenelol has been prescribed as an antiarrhythmic medication to prevent fast, irregular heart beats, one should not be drinking caffeinated beverages which can provoke tachyarrhythmias. If atenolol has been prescribed as an antihypertensive medication (to lower blood pressure), or after a heart attack, coffee may be less risky. Check with your doctor.
