what are the chances of organ damage due to overdose on atenolol. 6 tablets 100 mg?

Probably low

Open-uri20120812-28247-noad0u
The chances of organ damage from 600mg of atenolol is probably low, in an adult of normal size and decent health. Reports of overdoses of atenolol mention doses in the ranges of 1000mg to 5000mg. The underlying health of the patient, such as any coexisting medical problems (kidney disease or other diseases) can make a difference if an accidental overdose is taken.

How much 100 mg atenolol tablets woukd be considered an overdose?

Atenolol

Overdose
Two atenolol 100mg pills would be an overdose, over that would be a larger overdose. Generally 100mg a day is top dose, sometimes 100mg bid in special circumstances.

Is 12.5 mg Atenolol bid a good dose to keep a heart rate down below 100 beats/min at night?

Starting dose

Chest-heart
Total of 25 mg in divided doses is a good starting dose. Can go up to 100mg a day. Are you having dizziness after atenolol started? I like the combination with a diuretic. Remember that lifestyle changes like weight reduction, exercise, low sodium/high potassium and magnesium/low fat diet, stop smoking and stress reduction technique can reduce your BP too. If HR high you may need to increase dose

I'm not sure but I think I may have accidentally took an extra 100 mg atenolol several hours apart. Will I be ok?

Most Probably- Yes

Atenolol
Watch for anxiety, nervousness headache, unusual tiredness and even trouble sleeping. If you experience worsening difficulty breathing,chest pain, change in vision, fast heart beats or tingling/numbness/ cold hands /feet go to ER. Atenolol last in the system for about 6-7 hours. Any of the above symptoms should be improving over time. Drink plenty of water to help eliminate the drug. Take care.

Although all these Medications do lower BP they have other important functions in different parts of the body. Please check with Ur MD.

Dr. Brandon Maples answered:

Is it less risky to double dose Altenolol or miss a dose? I can't recall if I took 100 mg dose of Atenolol 6 hrs ago. Should I take a dose now or not?

Skip the dose

Atenolol
It looks like you asked this question awhile ago, so this may not be relevant anymore, but in your case, at 6 hours, I would say to just skip the dose rather than possibly double up on it. I would recommend just checking your BP every hour or two and make sure it's not too high, then resume your normal dosing schedule. If it IS too high, call your doctor.

Dr. Bennett Werner answered:

What can I expect withdrawing from atenolol 25 mg?

Small dose

Atenolol
Depends on how long you've been taking it, how large you are, and the reason you were taking it (BP, arrhythmia, or angina). The dose is small and often can be stopped cold but if you hare prone to angina or arrhythmia, you're wise to taper it (take it every other day for 7 doses) before stopping it.

Is it ok to use atenolol 25 mg and diltiazem 30 mg together?

Yes, however....

Atenolol
This combination of medicines both affect heart rate as they both target the AV node. Many times serial EKGs will be used to make sure you are tolerating this combination. I will say that this combination (especially immediate release diltiazem) is unusual.
