Exercise and pulse: Your pulse rate is being affected by atenolol, which is a beta-blocker (b). It reduces your BP by slowing your heart rate. Your pulse after exercise may have been higher, if you were not on it. Additionally, your pulse may have been faster after excise for the same reason. What was your blood pressure when your pulse was 74? ...Read more

Atenolol (Definition)

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 atenolol 100 mg + lisinopril/hctz (20/25) for hypertension. Is there a betterbeta blocker which will be better for exercise tolerance?

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

Unable to answer: Would like to give you an answer but It's not possible, nor is it wise, to give medical advice on the basis of one sentence of information. What is your medical history?

Care w multiple meds: For folks on multiple meds, it is critical that someone, preferably your primary MD reviews at least twice a yr, preferably quarterly total meds intake and effects they may be having on the body with vital signs and regular blood tests to see if any changes are warranted. While your BP seems a bit low, more imp is to make sure your potassium etc are ok also, which if lie can pose serious risk. ...Read more

Left ankle/lower leg is swollen. Bp normal. No salt. No excess fluids. Took hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) & atenolol. What's up?

Swelling: The swelling is likely caused by what is known as venous insufficiency. The elasticity of our veins decreases with age and doesn't recoil efficiently to move blood against gravity toward the heart. Support stockings, weight loss, leg elevation can help. If this is acute in onset and associated with pain you should see your doctor to rule out a more serious condition as a blood clot. ...Read more

It's ok to take coq-10 w everything I take right? Levothyroxine atenolol hctz Lexapro (escitalopram) Suboxone Vyvanse klonopin & ester-c?

Right: While there are potential interactions between a few of your medicines, the coq10 should not interact with lexapro, (escitalopram) suboxone, atenolol, hctz, klonopin, levothyroxin, and vyvanse. With hypertension and hyperlipidemia, you might want to consider a regular regimen of low-impact exercise (walking in the sunshine) and eating mostly foods with a low glycemic index. ...Read more

plexus slim review, side effects, ingredients, ; price.
. This particular diet agents can cause liver damage. It has garcinia cambodia in it. It has very little to recommend in terms of actual weight loss. It would be a waste of your money. You don't put your doses down of Suboxone and xanax (alprazolam). I hope that your Suboxone prescriber is aware of the xanax (alprazolam).I also hope that you are aware of the potential risks of the combination. It is not an absolute contraindication to use them both together, but caution certainly is encouraged and I think that a sleep study on the combination should be done to make sure that you are not having any formof obstructive or central apnea, both of which could lead to weight gain. Best wishes. ...Read more

Is it ok to have a couple glasses of wine bc I take a tiny bit of Suboxone each day, levothyroxine, atenolol, hctz, lexapro, (escitalopram) vyvanse, klonopin?

Is it ok to have a couple glasses of wine bc I take a tiny bit of Suboxone each day, levothyroxine, atenolol, hctz, lexapro, (escitalopram) vyvanse, klonopin?

Alcohol not helpful.: It has been my experience that antidepressant medication does not work well, if at all, in the presence of alcohol. Also, as I see it, a combination of alcohol and Klonopin (clonazepam) is always contraindicated due the same brain receptors being affected and due to the high potential for addiction to both, especially when there is a personal or family history of alcohol abuse. ...Read more

Heart Attack: You can take it in PM, no it does not raise the risk of heart attack or cause a heart attack. Your doctor probably prescribed it for better BP control. Check with and follow-up. Best wishes.... ...Read more

Talk to doc: This is not the place for you to ask this question. You really need to talk to your cardiologist about this combination of drugs- all of which can make you tired even by itself. If you need all these drugs just to keep your BP down, you need a good workup. If you also have very low potassium level, hyperaldosteronism needs be ruled out as well. Get a 2nd opinion if you must. ...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

Talk to your doctor.: If you are having problems with your medication get in contact with your doctor so he/she can start you in another medication. It is never good to just stop a medication unless you are experiencing significant side effects in which case you would need immediate evaluation so symptoms and options can be discussed with your provider. ...Read more

I am on Losartan 50 once daily but after 2 _3 days I take atenolol 50.Can I take 25 mg Atenolol daily, instead? Without atenolol, my pulse is 80 to 90

Atenolol dosing: Your atenolol dosing regimen is peculiar, this medicine should be taken once every 24 hours, 25 mg daily should thus be satisfactory. In some individuals losartan should be dosed twice daily, in your case I might suggest 25 mg twice daily rather than 50 mg once daily. Discussed this with your prescribing physician ...Read more

Due to unavaiaility of metoprolol+amlodipine 25/2.5 shifted to atenolol+nifedipine 50/20. Is it ok?

BP meds: It all depends on how the new drugs control your blood pressure. And also how the old drugs were doing. You need to keep a diary of pressures at various times during the day for about a week to make sure. And if you didn't do this while on the old meds, you have no idea how they were doing. Good luck. ...Read more

Very similar drugs: Both drugs are used to lower blood pressure and heart rate. Both drugs work equally as well in reducing blood pressure. One study from 1995 found that, at their top doses, Concor lowered heart rate by about five beats per minute more than Tenormin (atenolol). ...Read more
