Atenolol 100 Mg
Atenolol is a relatively long-acting (24 hours) beta-blocker. Beta-blockers as a group of medications calm or slow the heart rate down. They stop the swings in hr from stress or nerves. If someone is on a good dose of a beta-blocker and are startled, the medication suppresses the pounding of your heart. It also won't allow the hr to climb with exercise. It's used to ...Read more
I take Lisinopril 10 mg. twice a day, and Atenolol 100 mg. once a day. I've been taking these meds for 4 + years. Can I use Garcinia? I'm 40 lbs ov
Garcinia while an Amazon best seller in the weight loss category has had some serious side effects. Mainly that of liver toxicity. There is a case of a liver transplant needed after taking this product in the literature.
I would stay away from it for safety reasons.

On spironolactone 50 mg and atenolol 100 mg for blood pressure , I am trying to do HIIT, I feel like passing out when working out what can I do?
Passing out: One of the reasons you have a problem working out is that you are on atenolol (A). It works by slowing your heart rate and if you exercise, your pulse may not be able to increase because of A. Ask your physician if you can stop the A safely. If you can, your problem with exercise may be resolved. Good luck. ...Read more
I take atenolol 100 mg + lisinopril/hctz (20/25) for hypertension. Is there a betterbeta blocker which will be better for exercise tolerance?
The concern is: whether your blood pressure is controlled. Then experiment with different beta blockers. Individuals seem to have their own exercise tolerance and response to a given beta blocker. Discuss this with your primary health care provider and ask him/her to try a few different ones with you provided your BP remains controlled. ...Read more
Probably low: 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. ...Read more
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: 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. ...Read more
Thought I took two 50mg atenolol but accidentally took two 100 mg pills I use to take100 one daily but that was to strong I'm worried what should I do?
Was prescribed Atenolol 25mg yesterday for my hr being 100-135. Today it's been closer to the 100 mark. Should I hold off on taking it?
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: 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. ...Read more

Do yo meanPill size?: I'm not sure of the context of your question. Atenolol comes in 25, 50, and 100 mg tablets so the highest pill size is 100 mg. Usually it is taken once daily for high blood pressure, but for cases of cardiac angina (a medical diagnosis), it is taken twice daily (so the maximum daily dose is 200 mg). I suppose higher doses are possible but should be under your doctors' supervision / instructions. ...Read more
Small dose: 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. ...Read more
