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.

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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›

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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
I fall into the upper pre-hypertension or low hypertension level. Is 100 mg losartan and 25 mg atenolol a good combination to treat?
One drug: It sounds a bit excessive to start 2 drugs for such a mild blood pressure elevation. Usually you start with just one drug and the class of drug you start with is determined by several other factors. Hope this helps. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Starting dose: 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. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

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 ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Can I takeup to a 325 mg dose of a magnesium w/these daily medications? 20 mg viibryd, 25 mg atenolol, 0.5 mg clonazepam, 100 mg gabapentin 50 mg tra
Yes: there are no contraindications with any medication, as far as I know. Magnesium is found in many foods, and magnesium deficiency has become more common, particularly with use of drugs like omeprazole (Prilosec), esomeprazole (Nexium) and similar drugs which markedly reduce stomach acid and impede magnesium absorption. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
