Any, if tolerated: Ace inhibitors are a cornerstone of almost any hypertensive patient, especially if a patient has diabetes or heart failure. Monitoring of kidney tests and potassium and watching for cough or rarely rashes or swelling of the lips and eyelids are adverse effects that need medical attention.

Metoprolol versus atenolol--what is the difference?

Dr. Daniel Konold
Family Medicine 33 years experience
Half life: Atenolol has a shorter half life than metoprolol, only about 12 hours. Metoprolol can be taken once daily where for full effectivness atenolol should be taken twice daily. People often forget the second dose of anything so in my mind a once a day drug is better.

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
The possibility?: Anything can happen in life, so one must not ask, "what is the possibility?" the real question is, "how likely is it?" if a person took a several times the normal dose of atenolol, got evaluated by the doctors at the hospital, and was found to be recovered back to normal condition, then the answer is "unlikely". The primary care doctor can recheck if desired or if needed.
